"Like many things in life, photography is a delicate balance between art and science. You need to master both to succeed. If you refuse to learn the artistic side, then you end up making mechanical decisions that are lifeless and boring. I like to break artistic boundaries by working in complete darkness, in opposite of a painter which will start with a “white canvas”, a photographer should start with a “black canvas”.Beginning from total darkness may seem difficult, it's like light painting, using light to sculpt the scene, it creates a beautiful and dramatic look similar in fashion to a Baroque painting. I have successfully transferred this technique to an array of different work ranging from beauty, fashion, and conceptual. "
