What makes you different? 

I don’t think anything makes me different.

 When did you decide to become a photographer? 

I’ve always enjoyed taking pictures growing up and got more serious about it when I was living in Texas, taking pictures of landscapes. It evolved from there.

What do you find most fascinating about the creative process? 

I wouldn’t call my process particularly creative, but I enjoy imagining what a picture will look like before I take it, and then seeing how close to that image I can get.

 A few words about your favourite creation? 

A photo I took of 2 cops in Guatemala about to enter a house, I just happened to be there and was able to snap it before they went in.

Someone else’s work that inspired or inspires you… 

I’m a big fan of both Estevan Oriol and Slim Aarons.

Do you have a vision? 

I have a few ideas but I wouldn’t go as far as calling it a vision.
