"Whether I create a scenario or capture it spontaneously, I always start with – how do I want this image to feel? This involves opening myself up to the moment and trusting my emotions to dictate and inspire a compelling story. It’s also about building a connection or a feeling of familiarity with subjects that allows me to see their truly vulnerable, unguarded selves. These emotions are raw. Sometimes private. Always Honest."-Jimmy Williams
