As a photographer, he tends to lose perspective, especially when he looks at life and light through the lens.

A complicated love is a true story about a straight father and a gay son and lessons from their road trip. It packs an emotional punch as father and son share their poignant journey of discovery - each man ultimately learning that by letting go of old baggage they open their hearts and minds to accept each other. At its core is the enduring message of love in its purest form. AComplicatedLove.com.
