Statement of Ethics:

As a photographer I record interesting angles that illuminate a good story. I look for moments that make others smile and that, years from now, people will like looking back on and enjoy. I think it’s important to keep the integrity of a photo, but if there is a tool to enhance the natural beauty, I may use it to help tell the story.
