I cover news, politics and sports.
My first memory of photography is taking pictures at summer camp with my mom's point-and-shoot camera.
I took a few classes in photography but I mostly learnt from mentors, reading and practice.
My first assignment involved photographing a cat being rescued during a flood that engulfed my hometown in 1996. I learnt that, from that day on, I had a lot more to learn.
Covering a tornado in 2005 and allowing myself to emotionally connect with the victims was the assignment that left the biggest mark on me.
I love covering politics because I appreciate the theatre and all the creative options the assignments can bring.
I really don't think about the consumer when I shoot pictures, I just try to do the best that I can do.
You can make the best pictures when you just relax and keep your calm during chaos.
I respect anyone who follows their passion and doesn't let anyone else throw them off course.
