Artist Statement

​“Every portrait that is painted with feeling is a portrait of the artist, not of the sitter.” –Oscar Wilde


“Every portrait that is photographed with feeling is a portrait of the artist, the subject, and the relationship between them.”- Lauren Poole

My goal within this portfolio is to show the personality of my subjects through portrait photography with the use of color, environment, & nature.   


My first series of portraits strives for color and a bit of artistic flare to assist in showcasing the subject’s personality.

The second series, in black and white, says something about who the subject is, or what they do.  This is achieved through use of environment.

 In the third series, portraits taken in nature with a strong use of composition and mixed light are showcased.
