In My Bag

The art of photography comes in many forms. For myself, it is the marriage between technology and the artistic mind. As much as I LOVE the newest tech, it is important to know that no amount of equipment will make something that isn't. However, advancing equipment with technological changes will push your creative limits. There are few times that any single piece of equipment is game changing or revolutionary, but in this instance the Nikon D850 has transformed how I approach each image.

Near to my heart is the emotion and message behind each message. For those that follow me on Instagram, I attempt to give each image meaning and context. It is through this context that I hope to spread hope, love and kindness. We need more of that within this infinite vast universe. Most importantly, get out and shoot. Create art and memories, even if it is with your iPhone. Time doesn't stop for anyone. Know that simple acts can have great effect.
