heaven gained another angel today. i guess the saying "the good always die young" has some grain of truth to it. you may have been known only has a history teacher to some, but to me you were much more than that - a mentor, an inspiration, a comrade, and dare i say a friend. i'm sorry that you had to suffer in your final weeks; i'm sorry that i never got to say goodbye; i'm sorry that your wife has to raise her child alone and that your baby girl will never truly know the amazing human being her father was. you had so much left to live for, so much passion and so much life left in you. not a day will go by when i won't miss your smile, your laugh, your energy and your passion. the five years i had to know you were truly an honor and a privilege, and i only regret that i wasn't able to know you for more. 

heaven has gained another angel and the night sky has gained another guiding star; but the earth has truly lost someone magnificent.

:camera: About the photographer: :camera:

I've had a camera in my hands since I was ten years old, and I've never been able to see myself doing anything else with my life (unless you count my wanting to be a paleontologist when I was seven). My main interests lie in wildlife, documentary and portrait photography. Formally studying my passion full-time has caused me to push the boundaries of the medium itself, and as one of my lecturers so eloquently put it: "If you become comfortable with where you are as a photographer, sell your camera and start doing something else."

:camera: What I do: :camera:

Portraiture (both studio and environmental), documentary and wildlife, as well as beginning to branch into event and fine art photography. In my spare time, I'm an amateur novelist and practice art as a hobby (painting and pen-work mostly). I'm also an avid reader, with more books in my possession than items of furniture and clothing combined.

:camera: Long term goals: :camera:

:bulletred: Branch into professional documentary work
:bulletorange: Travel as part of my career
:bulletyellow: Do work for Time, National Geographic or Getty Images
:bulletgreen: Backpack across the world

:camera: Ultimate dreams: :camera:

:bulletred: Create social awareness through my documentary work
:bulletorange: To have one of my works featured on the covers of Time or National Geographic
