CONNECTIONS BLOG

CONNECTIONS
Affinity. Closeness. Longing for connection. These shared experiences are what elevate our lives beyond mere existence. Good or bad, they are the muse for poetry, the rhythm of music, and the ‘heart’ in our heart. This body of work is about exploring just that: our humanity seen through how we connect with something outside ourselves. That moment when we bare our souls and open our hearts.

From lepers to super heros...on the streets of New York

It's a special joy for photographers to shoot personal projects.  It's a great way for anyone to show their abilities outside the constraints of commissioned shoots and a great way to grow. We all enjoy checking out other people's personal work, as it gives us an insight to their style and interests.

My personal projects have been invaluable, and I've been nominated and won photography awards over the years using those images. Here's a few of my favourite personal projects.
