Photography to me is about appreciating and capturing the beauty in the fleeting, transcendent moments in life and the sharing of those easily missed moments in a way that enriches the lives of those who experience it.

Random trivia: One of my great great grandparents was jeweler to the czar of Russia, and my great uncle was a silent film star. My great grandparents’ last name was Vankazanskisternstein, which they changed to Stern at Ellis Island.
