What Inspires You?
“I’m inspired by classic fashion and design, and the work of older film photographers. As a result, most of my work is very romantic and whimsical with a distinct vintage flavor. The combination of the full frame Canon EOS 5D Mark III DSLR camera and the Canon EF 85mm f/1.2 II USM lens let me create an old-timey look using shallow depth of field and beautiful bokeh, and that allows me to create images that capture a kind of fantasy that transports the viewer to another place in time, a place that is magical and dreamlike.”

What enables you?
“I rely on the exceptional high ISO performance of my Canon EOS 5D Mark III to capture handheld images of extraordinary quality in natural light at any time of day or night. Even at ISO 6400 the image quality holds up remarkably well—it’s extremely sharp with very little noise. I also like the Custom White Balance feature that makes it easy to set the precise color balance, and the camera’s moderate size and weight, that lets me shoot all day without fatigue. But in the end it’s really the outstanding image quality and stunning high ISO performance that makes the Canon EOS 5D Mark III the perfect camera for me. I just love it!”
