(n.) Latin amatorem:

(3.) one who pursues a passion for the love of the subject.
I have always been drawn to photography, specifically, how universal and subtly powerful it is. A great image will convey a message; a timeless image will awaken an emotion. It is that emotion I receive when creating art in portraiture that made me want to become an amateur again. To pursue the art for the sheer love and passion of it.
As a portrait artist, I aim to capture your essence in a single image. The message and emotion of you.
