MY MISSION STATEMENT
[a work in progress]
when i first started taking pictures i was very careful, obsessed really, to taking a perfect picture. at school i was always occupied with technical precision and knowledge.
now it's the opposite. when i make a picture, i try to remember to put the imperfections in.
a good photographer knows that exposure, focus, the best equipment, possibly even light, don't make a good picture. it's the presence of the photographer. it's the way he/she understands the moment and the context and the setting.
a good photo shouldn't just represent a moment, it should tell a story.
