It is an illusion that photos are made with the camera… they are made with the eye, heart and head.
— Henri Cartier-Bresson
Live from the stage/my workspace
 

In 17 years as a professional photographer, I've learned that every assignment is unique — although often similar in structure, each event has a different character and energy. So too with people. When someone steps in front of my lens, the technical takes a backseat to the living, breathing individual, and that awareness is reflected in the images I capture.
