Lives in: Corpus Christi, Texas.
Shoots with: I have 8 cameras that I shoot with, but my main squeeze is my Canon AE-1.
Favorite subject: Everything fascinates me, but without a doubt my favorite subject to shoot are humans. Capturing raw, genuine moments is what I live for. Candid photography has always been a favorite of mine and I love to take photos of people/ friends when they are least expecting it. I love capturing humans in their own element, basically.
Inspired by: I draw inspiration from everywhere. Anything and everything inspires me, really. It doesn’t take much to inspire me at all. I find beauty in all sorts of things no matter how strange or bizarre something may seem. The way light shines off of wet roads at night after it’s rained all day or just simply admiring a stranger smile at something that makes them happy are a few things that inspire me.
Nature and music are also some of the things that I hold close to my heart and inspire me as well. Andrew VanWyngarden (front-man of MGMT) has probably made the biggest impact of them all, though. His music and talent alone inspires me to always be real and creative whenever I want to create something.
Era I’d love to shoot: The 60s! The 60s captivate me unlike any other era. I would have LOVED to photograph and document Woodstock festival. The spirit and atmosphere of that festival is something that is ineffable. Photographing The Beatles would have been a dream come true! 60’s fashion and the whole hippie movement just completely leaves me in awe. I’m sure it was a pretty magical time and to have been alive and captured it all through my lens would have been extremely awesome.
Random fact: Before I die, I want to see the Aurora Borealis !
