I am a landscape, nature and fine art photographer.
My photography reflects my strong love of nature. I hold a deep appreciation for the endless cycle of natural life, from the trees huge enough to hold centuries to the briefest of insects. I find beauty in humans’ desire and ability to discover our own spirituality in the world that surrounds us. This connection between people and nature has been a consistent influence throughout my life and is reflected in my photography.
Whether I am photographing a landscape, a person, animals, machinery, or architecture I look for the details in my subject matter – literally or figuratively – to find the story they tell. By working around and with those details, I hope to bring that story forward in the image I’m creating. When a viewer looks at my work and can see that story, or a piece of their own truth, I feel that I have succeeded as a photographer and an artist.
As an artist, I continually challenge myself to learn new techniques and to experiment with different ways to bring the emotion of each piece forward. I do this because a photograph is more than just an image – it is a mood, a feeling, a breath. With each image I shoot I love finding the place where it can come to life – where it can truly breathe.
I hope you enjoy viewing my work as much as I enjoy creating it.
