I've been a professional photographer for nearly two decades and I keep going for one reason — I absolutely love it.

Ten years as a photojournalist taught me how to organize the chaos in my frame to tell a story. I use that same skill to organize chaos and capture a moment whether I'm taking portraits of a big family with an energetic puppy or filming video of a fast-moving program.

 If looking at a photo or watching a video makes you feel something in that moment, I've done my job.
