Greetings!
My name is john Scotfield from SC. I actually observed my wife has
been viewing your website on my laptop and i guess she likes your
piece of work, I’m also impressed and amazed to have seen your various
works too, : )  You are doing a great job. I would like to receive
further information about your piece of work and what inspires you. I
am very much interested in the purchase of the piece (in subject field
above) to surprise my wife. Kindly confirm the availability for
immediate sales.
Thanks and best regards,
john.

Ever since I could remember I was always attracted to people and places, but I was not always good with words or finding connection. Photography was my way of fitting in--my way to communicate the beauty I see around me. I’ve traveled the world documenting all types of subjects and experienced many extraordinary people and places.
