It started out with friends helping me out with assignments for a camera techniques class. Most of these images were simple portraits exploring depth of field and shutter speed. Images became slowly more involved. Friends and family were asked to sit in cold stream waters, cover themselves in corn starch, carry large televisions down steep flights of stairs, hold heavy objects, stand still in awkward leg wobbling positions, stare straight at the sun and the list goes on and on. No one ever complained or ever questioned my vision. My friends and family have always had the attitude whatever you need, I am there for you. Whether my need was for a model, assistant, location, heavy lifting, babysitting, prop searching, they have been there.
It is because of them that I have been able to achieve my visions and take my photography places that I never thought I could. I want to thank each and every one of them. I seriously couldn't do it without you.
