Background

PAC-2012AE-0112-M0A_edited_edited.jpg

I was born in California and lived most of my life there. I was able to experience scenic landscapes and develop an appreciation for them that continues to shape my work to this day. While my early photographic focus was on natural landscapes, over time my work evolved to include additional genres, such as urban and industrial landscapes.

I have traveled extensively over the years, which has broadened my interests to travel photography, another major focus of my work. I have also developed a keen interest in wildlife, especially bird, photography.

 

I moved to Prescott, Arizona in 2013 , which provided me a greater opportunity to explore and capture the treasures of the American Southwest as is reflected in my portfolio.

I am constantly seeking out landscapes, natural and man-made, to reveal their beauty, their graphic energy, or their tensions with their surroundings. I enjoy the spontaneity of composition that comes, especially, with wildlife and travel photography.

In capturing an image, I pay great attention to the fundamentals - exposure with a full range of light, compositional elements, tonality and color. If these are lost the image will be discordant and ultimately fail as art.

 

The captured image is not the final expression of my vision. The fundamentals are there, but they then need to be interpreted. I achieve this interpretation utilizing an extensive pallet of digital software tools to enhance the image to create my original visualization. And I use archival materials and exacting oversight to produce my work to ensure that it will be of the highest quality and last for generations.
