Guest:

There’s always a moment with or without the lens. Recognizing that moment and getting intimate with it is what draws me to photography. The thrill of documenting my own endeavors and helping others to see theirs makes photography not only a passion but a lifestyle.

It’s the road that pulls me. I am bound to it by the thrill of a well-curated playlist. Suddenly my night isn’t bound by sleep and everything looks like a possibility. I don’t ignore the paths I pass or try to control them, I just follow. By the end of any trip, I find I have a gallery filled with faces, places, and emotions that only the unknown road can procure.

But sure, there are the moments when the road can’t keep me. When that happens? I turn to the city. Orlando bustles with sounds and movements that only a city infused with musicians can, and I’m there. Enthusiastic. Camera in hand.
