Enhancing Creativity

For those of you who are inspired by photography, and who not only want to enjoy photography as an art form, but who also want to create images...consider this:  learn your camera forwards and backwards. Become intimately familiar with the functions of your camera.  Then your brain and creative juices will be free to create beautiful imagery.

Sameness Images

I created Sameness as a body of work that is meant to empower people of different race, religious background, sexual orientation, and gender identitiy.  I photographed various people who on the surface appear to have a myriad of differences.  Upon closer examination, however, everyone is quite similar.  We all pay bills, run errands, do laundry, and go to the doctor.  We all want to be included, we all want to feel loved, and we all crave intimacy.  Our paths towards obtaining these items might look different, but the goal is the same.

Through self-awareness and authenticity, we can first to accept and love ourselves, and from there we can love and accept others.
