I love working with people, especially in an environment or when I get to tell a story about their personality.
Creating images in collaboration, responding to backgrounds and expressions, managing the lighting to create a mood – all of these decisions to make, problems to solve, and opportunities to capture.
This is what drives me to photograph. This constant learning, the act of being totally present and aware in the moment, the times when the mind and machine fade away and the spirit speaks through the lens.
I don't take pictures of people, I make images with them.Aura McKay
