About me

In my photos, I try to capture the true essence of the object I\'m photographing. I have completed a course of study with the New York Institute of Photography,but I\'m still learning.

I also plan on continual upgrades of my equipment, and on trying different techniques for achieving the look I want my pictures to have.
