The Anatomy of Me

I became interested in Photography around August of 1998 and it soon became something that took over my life. I immediately looked in to furthering my education in photography. I learned everything I could about shooting film, developing negatives, photos, etc. etc. etc. Then sadly after schooling I no longer had access to a darkroom or development supplies. I continued to shoot constantly developing connections with club owners and event promoters and immediately started shooting photos for clubs and events. After a couple of years I had fallen out of the nightlife scene, so I started to pursue a more journalistic style photography, That lasted a couple of years until I discovered my eye leaning in another direction, Landscapes. That is when  I began my love affair with nature photography that has lasted until this day. Most of what I have shot has been a variation of Nature combined with other styles. . . . After A While I decided because I was young and semi talented that it would (for obvious reasons) be great to shoot nudes. . . Oh how I was wrong. My gung-ho attitude to see a nude woman in front of my camera was soon washed away not by the difficulty shooting a nude, but actually shooting a nude and making it look great. Shooting nudes became a challenge, a way to achieve more in photography, learn more. I taught myself how to pose, how lighting really worked, how angles and exposure could wash away all of our imperfections. The learning curve was steep but I feel I  achieved something great! I am always looking to try new things, Take more artistic photos, experiment with time and light, even if that means I ruin a photo or two in the process than so be it. Today I have a couple of Photographic Identities one of them I call Driftwood Images, where I showcase more of my fine art, Nature, Landscapes, Nudes, Bodyscapes, And portfolio work with models. My other Is called Vivo Capture Photography, mine & my wife’s creation. This is we showcase our , Wedding, Bridal, Portrait, Family, Maternity, and Newborn Photography. I hope you love my work as much as I love creating it! Feel free to check out either of my websites, weather you are looking for something to hang on your walls, or someone to shoot your special day!
