My philosophy is to get to know the location before even bringing my camera with me into the wilderness. I will often spend several days at each location so I can experience sunrise, sunset, and the way that the light falls on the land. This allows me to formulate how best to capture the beauty of a scene. Without doing this, I find myself very intimidated by the beauty of a location, and feel that I am not capable of truly capturing the essence of a location.
My ultimate goal is to create simple, structured, and zen-like images of nature. These images are often shaped by my graphic design background.
In late 2009, I began documenting my adventures with daily video journals. As viewership has increased, I have taken steps to increase the quality and content of these videos. My goal, as always, is to bring you along for the ride. I want you to see what I see, and feel what I feel at each location.
I invite you to visit me at my upcoming shows to view my work in person. Once you see the prints, I think you will understand why I enjoy photography so much!
