Unique locations, animals, people, and various situations that are often overlooked
inspire my photography. Beauty usually goes unnoticed and unappreciated, yet it
reflects aspects of our humanity that are memorable to capture with a camera. I strive to
capture moments of beauty and magic. Whether photographing people or landscapes,
the same approach applies. I am placing myself in the moment, being patient, and
having faith that something magical will unfold. A sense of reverence has fueled my
photography of the natural world and its remarkable beauty. I resonate with images
that depict a peaceful coexistence between humans and nature. These quiet moments
with my camera bring me back to my childhood: exploring, being curious, dreaming,
seeing, and breathing in the beauty surrounding me. In the evolution of my
photography, trying new techniques in analog and digital photography humbles me.
I’ve learned that creativity requires a perennial sense of playfulness, finding that
childlike fascination for the magic contained within each opportunity in life.
