In 2016 I packed my bags and hit the road with my full of camera equipment. From there, I started getting photography and now regularly travel and do photographing of different people, festivals, and events.
Photography takes an instant out of time, altering life by holding it still. A thing that you see in my pictures is that I was not afraid to fall in love with these people. For me, Great photography is about the depth of feeling, not the depth of field.

A picture is worth a thousand words, or so the saying goes.
There are many reasons why I love photography, not the least of which is that a photograph (or a series of them) has the ability to convey stories to those that view them.
Over the centuries people have gathered around campfires, in town squares, over meals and so on to tell their stories and these gatherings have become central to the shaping of cultures and communities.
In more recent times some people have lamented that the art of storytelling has been lost amidst the rise of different technologies.
Perhaps there is some truth in this but I also wonder if perhaps it’s just the way we tell stories that have changed.
One such medium for storytelling in the time we live is digital photography. A photograph has the ability to convey emotion, mood, narrative, ideas, and messages, all of which are important elements of storytelling.
