Sometimes, when attempting to explain to education clients how I work and why, it can be a bit difficult. To be perfectly honest, schools place a great deal of trust in me to deliver images that reveal the underlying spirit of who they are while providing a glimpse of their nurturing environments. Environments that create meaningful and often lasting relationships between students, faculty, coaches, and counselors. The challenge for me is doing it with images and not words.
It's not as difficult as it may seem. I am an acute observer of what is actually happening in a classroom or on an athletic field or a playground. I must be very careful to be minimally invasive with my camera. When a teacher provides a thought provoking classroom setting and students are naturally engaged, my job is to identify those ah-hah moments of discovery and make them timeless.
I value your comments about my work.
