The addictive side of my personality came into play in the early days of my career when I photographed documentary-style weddings. It wasn't the love of seeing the beautiful bridal parties or the emotion-filled ceremonies that kept me coming back for more (not that those weren't great), it was the thrill of performing under pressure. After all, weddings are a one shot deal. You either get the picture or you don't.
These days my projects tend to be less event oriented, but whenever photographs of humans are concerned, there is the challenge of rising to the occasion. Every shoot presents different problems to be solved, whether it is lighting conditions, making the subject comfortable or getting the right picture within a small window of time. All these things contribute to my love of photography.
