I think the desire to capture beauty is first and foremost a feature of my artistic ideals. The creation of subject is to me a means of translating that which is naturally beautiful into an image. An image that not only celebrates but accentuates the individual. My photography is very egocentric in its subject portrayal, I enjoy the intimate process of creating a subject. I often direct the creative process, assisting in make-up, styling and presentation. I like to guide the process and translate my aesthetic appreciation of the subject into the image. In that sense I feel my photography is very personal, and represents a relationship between me and the intended subject.
