Fashion photography in recent years has evolved into something much larger and greater than simple product advertising. The photographs that I am drawn to the most are those that go beyond focusing solely on the product itself, allowing creativity and imagination to be the dominating forces that drive the images to magnificence. As a photographer whose work falls under the ever-expanding umbrella of fashion, I create highly stylized images with a specific focus on the decorative beauty of the female face and form. The make-up, hair, and accessory styling in my photography act as embellishments and adornments of the body and are used to create interesting and visually striking imagery. I also draw inspiration from gestures and body language I see everyday; the brief ones that last simply for a moment and can only truly be appreciated by the eternal gaze of the camera.
