The next few posts in this gallery will include some of my street photography from 2011. These shots have been posted elsewhere, but not yet to this gallery. I consider these images, and this period, extremely important in shaping me as a photographer. Please note that whenever possible, I obtain permission from the subjects of my photos.

This will be the last post in my America series. Of the 1,000 photographs I took in Las Vegas, I feel those I have included in these three articles best communicate my experience of the city.
I stayed in the Wynn hotel for a few days. It might be regarded as the epitome of opulence. I certainly enjoyed my visit. I also spent an evening listening to the Jennifer Keith Quintet, who were excellent.

Flickr is the largest photosharing website on the internet; since its launch in 2004, more than 5 billion photographs have been uploaded.
Why? Why do so many men and women find such satisfaction in taking and sharing photographs?
I believe photography is communication. Through the manipulation of light on a sensor, an artist has the power to create meaning.
Throughout the last century, photographs have not only documented important moments, but shaped and evolved, shocked and surprised, motivated and inspired generations. Photographers are heralds and orators – whether through careful, slow planning or impulsive lightening-speed reactions, a photographer works with a tool to tell the world a story. As Monet understood his brush, the Photographer uses camera in his hands to direct light in such a way as to speak.
A photographer possesses amazing power, and the responsibility to use that power in presenting a full canvas, worthy of the spectators’ investigatory gaze.
This is what I hope my photography might one day become.
