The Personal/Iphone Photograph is an attempt to express myself as a photographer. The passion of photography sometimes gets lost in the process of trying to please your subjects through your art. So shooting personal subjects is all about the freedom of expression.

Often in photography, we are directed to meet certain guidelines for specific types of work in order to take the perfect shot: simple things like focusing on the eyes of a portrait subject or ensuring you have some product or interest in your picture. Sometimes you need to just break the rules.

Visualizing the world around you and reacting to it photographically is inspiring and satisfying. Taking shots because they’re pleasing. Seeing a subject and then expressing it, helps me with my own personal vision.

I love to go out and capture new subjects. Keep my eyes open and explore. It’s very rewarding to not think about what I’d like to photograph but respond to what I am seeing.
