I am a freelance photographer. I focus on portraiture and sports/action photography. As a portrait photographer I’m interested in making connections with my subjects and allowing an audience to connect with them through my work. I view portrait photography as a collaborative process that isn’t about ‘taking a picture’ but about creating something that represents the subject. As sports/action photographer, I love capturing the ephemeral moments that stick in our memory. I’m a huge sports fan myself and I bring that ‘fan’s sense of the action’ to my work. You can see my portfolio and pricing/contact information at Fifth Labor Photography.
My artistic work often explores the way photos interact with our perceptions. I love the adage that “Art is a lie that reveals a truth,” and perhaps no medium ‘lies’ to the audience as effectively as photography. It’s that dynamic/tension that I most enjoy examining.
I have an ongoing editorial photography project titled “City on a Hill: Hopes in America”. The first series of portraits from the series will be on exhibition at Thymele Arts in Hollywood, CA from May to July of this year. The opening reception is May 12th at 8pm. See a preview at Cityuponahill.us.
