I often get asked, “How do I take the perfect photograph?” and while the answer seems justified with a few shared tips and tricks of the trade, the truth is perhaps simpler to me: photography is an artistic expression infused deeply in passion. Or at least that’s what it means to me. The ‘perfect’ photograph, then, is an artistic expression—that comes naturally once you trust your creative instincts.

I became a photographer because I enjoyed telling a story. There is nothing more intriguing to me than painting a picture with words, without a single utterance. What I do is embedded within me—photography is what drives me on the daily. I draw inspiration from the most unusual places and that shines through in my work.
