"Magic touches people in the way great art does. It lets them see the world with new eyes."  
Drummond Money-Coutts


Fashion is exciting to shoot! It takes patience, organization and working with an amazing team of designers, make up artists, and models.  Then, you have to find the magic.


Cirque and Aerial Performances are extremely enticing and hard to capture.  Movement is always a whirlwind.  I have years of experience photographing aerial and cirque performers.



It is a wonderful experience attempting to capture images for others, however, returning to what made you want to photograph is important. Always follow your heart, and always follow your art.

"Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only.
Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening."
-Coco Chanel


"The one thing that you have that nobody else has is you. Your voice, your mind, your story,
your vision. So write and draw and build and play and dance and live as only you can."
  -Neil Gaiman
