How We Work
We shoot because We see. We shoot because if We don’t, We don’t know who will. We shoot because We find peace in being especially active, and being a vigorous advocate for a cause.
How does one define what a “cause” is? According to Webster, it is “a person or thing that acts, happens, or exists in such a way that some specific thing happens as a result; the producer of an effect.”
Our photography is first and foremost a catalyst or reason to motive human action. Every picture We take asks the questions, “Who am I and what is my role here on this earth?” It is my way of seeing. It is my way of saying this is another way of seeing me.
For the People
Photography and working with photographers. It has been the way that We have experienced much of the world. In a deeply personal way We feel an image is a poem about time, about “staying the moment.” Photography can defeat time. Images can keep the memory of a loved one alive, hold a moment in history for future generations, be a witness to tragedy or joy. They can also change behavior, stimulate understanding and create a sense of urgency that will move people to action. Photography is the universal language that speaks to the heart.
Photographers are the dedicated, passionate and sometimes half-crazy individuals who are willing to give their lives, too often quite literally, to show us what needs to be seen, what needs to be known. We can think of no greater honor nor privilege than to have lived a life surrounded by images and the amazing individuals who create them and share them with us.
