Never afraid to take creative risks, his work takes on the form of being bold, colorful, and cinematic. No matter the subject matter, whether it is a top-model or an everyday person, his vision is the same and that is to make you feel as beautiful as he is going to make you look! His mission is to help people see and value themselves with positive self-esteem through the transformation of a powerful portrait.
