Creating images in camera that make people swear it’s Photoshop.

Around a couple years ago I discovered lightpainting and since then it’s kept me up pretty late into the night. Everything you see on this website was created without the use of Photoshop and was all done using long exposure photography. I love pushing the limits of what is capable in a photograph without using photo editing software because it pushes me to become a better photographer and spend less time behind a computer.

My drive to push even further was multiplied when I was diagnosed with cancer late in 2017. My love for lightpainting provided a light at the end of the tunnel that I strove for everyday while fighting cancer. I’m happy to report that I’m currently in remission and my second chance as life is going to be one heck of a ride.
