A picture tells a thousand words and to each of us, each picture tells us a different story.
As an amateur photographer many of my photos turn out out god awful and yet on occasion a gem appears.
My most recent travels have been to finally see my hometown through the eyes of the camera lens. I hope you too can see the beauty that God has created for us to enjoy.
As time goes by, the subject of my photography has altered direction. I now enjoy taking pictures at Jiu Jitsu seminars, competitions. Mostly I love capturing people’s raw emotions during the moments they are most vulnerable on the mat. The smiles, tears and anxiety..everything that is Jiu Jitsu. On the mat, everything is real.
