"I fell into photography on accident but my success thus far has been a result of the hard work I put in. I love what I do. I love the ability to create. We collided by chance. I needed an outlet and she needed a host. We feed off each other...she gives me temporary escape and in return I give her life. She gives me a chance to see the world through "My Third Eye"
