After 17 years of photographing weddings and private events for a livingI closed my studio in 2017 and became a long haul truck driver, driving anywhere and everywhere in the eastern United States. The photojournalist in me has a new purpose. My new documentary "The American Trucker" took off the first day I started driving a semi-truck with a 53 foot long trailer. I take a borrowed Fuji XE-2 camera with couple of lenses everywhere I go and try to document the trucking life... The life on the road. I talk to truckers, truck stop staff as a trucker/photographer. I seemed to notice that the people who keep America moving put their guards down as they see me one of their own.
