GUIDING

WHEN GETTING SOBER OVER SIX YEARS AGO, I NEEDED A SPACE, A PRACTICE TO PROCESS AND EXPRESS THOSE PARTS OF ME THAT HAD BEEN BURIED OR THAT I SELF-MEDICATED FOR SO LONG, I FOUND PHOTOGRAPHY AND THOSE GENTLE SOULS WHO HELP GUIDE ME THROUGH THE JOURNEY.

I never thought I’d find myself in this place of offering my experience, what’s been my gain over these years. To me photography is not a knowledge of settings or formulas, cameras or lenses, it’s more that deepest part of us that needs to be filled or heard. I still get caught in those places of searching, but these days I embrace more than reject—seeing the growth in it all. In those magical times, and they are much more frequent, photography completes a cycle in me, both posing questions and answers, gently leading me from one place to another. It’s a relationship more than a practice, a fine instrument more than a hammer. It’s what my work has become—it’s a part of me. 

I want to offer to you what has been so gratefully and gently offered to me through the years. More than amentor or teacher, I wish to be your guide on a shared journey. My belief and desire is to get to know the whole person versus just the photographer—allowing enough time to develop honest and sincere communication, creating the foundation for growth and a healthy creative environment. 

Our need to express is really at the heart of why we photograph, why we create. It’s that desire to express, having a platform to be heard from, that drives us. We truly want our work to grow along with our ever changing growth within. If you are like me and have these longings and wish to be guided by someone who will join you more than lead you, then this path might be for you.
