Art (usually) in the Café

“In my work, I like to capture many mediums, from nature to people. There is always a beautiful moment to be captured.

I first found my interest in photography from a young age seeing my dad use a film camera but it wasn’t until I became older that I remembered I once used to aspire to become a photographer myself. These images are from here in Lexington and from coast to coast from Seattle to North Carolina.”
