Early Work | Issaquah WA

The less I intend any fixed outcome the more true and alive my results. This was many many years ago. Film. I was photographing a dance class. Fun shots of the little girls being themselves as they pranced about their ballroom. Somewhere in there I caught this. Have always loved it. The stillness necessary in the cocoon, in creation; the butterfly in the making.

These were photographed in her home. We moved from room to room finding light -soft, direct and ripply through the antique window glass….

Subtle shifts of expression, each its own feeling. Strength.

Soulful Senior Portrait

I try to let a portrait inform me rather than impose an ‘outside in’ projection upon it. Which means getting out of my own way. Presence over mind. We both have to enter a space that is larger than each but of which we are a part. It is not a procedure or formula. It is simply connecting authentically. So, here it’s not a senior portrait but a soul before me who happens to be journeying his senior year of high school.

Because I am shooting for an authentic sensibility, your images often will serve both commercial and personal use.
