•I believe we are all capable of recovering our potential for love and happiness, no matter how much abuse or tragedy we have experienced.

•I believe every human group has great beauty and dignity. There is no Other.

•The same principles of form and composition that make for dynamic and memorable photojournalism make for exceptional event photography.

•I’ll keep taking a portrait until I arrive at the inner glow. The exact expression is 60%; the lighting is 40%.

•I believe our greatest accomplishments and treasures are our children.
