About me

I've come to realize that my art has diversity with powerful individual vision, that chronicles the life of individuals. People draw me into their lives to tell their story to anyone willing to listen and validate their reason for living. My attraction to story telling grew as my life developed behind a camera. I discovered that it's not how a photographer looks at the world that is important, it's their relationship with their fellow human beings and these moments of connectivity that are frozen in time for all to see.

I am now teaching street photography and journalism around the world. Helping people to find their stories after they identify their personal pilgrimage.

As a photographer I have won a John F Kennedy award, Leica Medal of Excellence for outstanding achievement in humanistic photojournalism, NPPA region 10 second place, and many more.

I hope to share more and inspire other's as an administrator on foto-community someday.

    es heißt, dass es Menschen gibt, denen man nur einmal im Leben begegnet; auf welche Art auch immer und diese Begegnung wird immer im Kopf bleiben!
    Vielen Dank dass ich dich kennen lernen durfte!

    it is said that there are people whom one encounters only once in a lifetime; in whatever way and this encounter will always stay in your head!
    Thank you for letting me know you!
