You shoot film because…

I shoot film because of the slow, personal, and creative process it allows the photographer to have. There’s something special about taking my time with the 4″x5″ view camera, getting the structure of the image correct in my ground glass, taking the photo, and then waiting until it’s processed to see the final result. After hand processing sheet film the negatives are crisp and organic, unlike anything you can achieve digitally. It’s beautiful.

Your photography feels like…

My photography feels very emotive and real. As a photographer I strive to convey emotion, unexpected perspectives, and story-telling through my work.
