Over the years I’ve seen my work inspire many people around the community and I wanted to share a little bit of my own inspiration and show how I translate that into an image. I’ve always found ambiance to be the core of my creative platform. Depending on the mood, music helps define the tone and feeling of a project I’m working on whether it’s photography, editing or animation. I heavily rely on ambient music to spin my creative wheel and since I travel a lot I usually go through tons of playlists.



I’m always on the lookout for a good song to see what I’ll think of next. Most of my favorite work revolves around natural light or ambient lighting, something that looks more natural and easy to relate to. This foundation makes it easier to capture candid shots that capitalize on those “behind the scenes” moments that show a deeper emotion. The best part is taking that inspiration and translating it to something of your own. Everyone has their own style of photography just how everyone has their own taste in music. This just happens to be mine.





If anyone is wondering, this is what I’m currently listening to:
