I tend to seek out the moments everyone else misses and I have the chance to capture them and give them life. My portfolio is filled with sharp details, strong colors and the not so typical expression. I look for the moments beyond the pose. I had planned to shoot the lake reeds long before the actual shoot. I had the model Gale O'Hearn next to the reeds just on the edge of the water but I wanted more. I told her to try to come towards the camera as if she was emerging from the water. She kicked off her shoes and got down into the muck and magic happened.
