Ive been shooting photographs for over ten years . Like every photographer , I try to show the world through my eyes , hence the title of my first book . I'm a father , so , my family is very important . I cherish those times . Photography is a great way for me to get away and relax , to find an outlet for stress and open my eyes and mind to some other things in our world . I always have a camera in my hand or in my pocket . Capturing my son playing or just shooting the world around me , those are the things I love about photography .
