One of the things I love most about photographing people is capturing their connections. Whether it be connections between each other, or the connection they make to the camera, I feel like when you capture this, you capture a little bit of who they are. I love that. I literally cannot live (or shoot) without it. I am constantly learning and technique and trying my best to improve, but it is just the way I shoot, I prefer connection over technique, it is what makes the shot for me. Perhaps this is why I struggle with photography without humans (though animals do sometimes come through for me). I need my photos to convey who the people are that I am shooting. The need to show the world just who they are, it is a part of me.
