If I really get honest, I prefer shooting that which is unscripted and live. I prefer the spontaneity and luck associated with capturing the "Happy Moment".

I've been fortunate to work with the band Pepper for many years. There is a comfort between us that allows me to travel and explore with them, camera in hand. From chance encounters with other bands to intimate moments of creation, we get to tell a story about what it really means to be in the band. I know I appreciate that view and I hope that others do as well. 

The goal though is to help more people and brands share their story. Help the world see these truly engaging and fascinating organizations. From non-profits to household products, we all have value and we should all be working to help people see how we can benefit their life. Hopefully, I'll have the chance to work with you.
