I know how difficult it can be to create images that you're proud of. Much of what I've learned in photography comes from trial and error, experimenting with different techniques, a lot of stress (good stress!), and personal investments in education throughout the years to hone my craft.

I certainly didn't acquire the knowledge to create the images you see in my portfolio alone and neither should you.
