Urban Still Life

Introduction

Still life photography has its roots in the centuries-old tradition of still life painting. As a contemporary photographer, creating a still life allows me complete control over the image’s lighting, composition and subject matter referencing past styles, but with newer technologies, the range of potential subjects is limitless.

Although I’m meticulous in preparation of images down to the last detail--selecting, arranging, and lighting objects in ways that are not only pleasing to the eye, but that are most importantly experimental in terms of subject matter, mood, and composition, creating inventive images that aim to both surprise and inspire.
