  • “I think the strength in your work in general comes from your unusual way of seeing things. You seem to really like to push the viewer to see things in a different way… This is great and a wonderful way of using photography. You have what it takes, I think, to be a photographer. I say this both because of your visual acuity, but also because of your tendency towards hard work and the fact that you don’t seem to “let go” once you get going. You keep on going until it’s just what you want and that sense of perfectionism will carry you far.” – Jeff Curto
  • “You are ready to push yourself and experiment with different genres. This will serve you well in Photography. You have a distinct point of view that you are trying to convey, that makes your photography very unique and interesting.” – Miles Boone
