Photography is about light: the way it falls into a room, bounces off surfaces and illuminates people. Natural light is the most beautiful but it changes over the course of the day, starting out soft in the mornings, turning brighter and harsher at midday, only the end long shadows and what’s called the blue hour.
In my pictures, I work mostly with available light. That means I try to capture subjects in the particular shade of daylight rather than bringing my own lamps or using the flash. In fact, my favorite kinds of pictures result from happenstance, they are something I see occur naturally and that I freeze with the camera. On assignment, I try to create the conditions in which people feel relaxed and at ease, I want to set the stage for something to happen that usually doesn’t when there is a camera around.
