About

A one-eyed photographer? Aye, matey. I started shooting with my dad's Canon F1 when I was in elementary school, I didn't lose my eye until my junior year in college; while there was a slight period of adjustment it was not as difficult as relearning how to pour a glass of water. When you think about it, it should actually make photographing easier as I already have to create dimensions in a flat capture with my eye’s single lens!
The vision loss does not stop me from doing what I love: photographing people. This is best when they are not too conscious of my camera. I'd like to have a cloak of invisibility so that I could go around taking pictures of people's expressions in crowded places. Meanwhile, I'll bring some humans to my studio and try to get them to be as forgetful of my presence as possible while standing in front of my lens.
