My prints reflect the way I see the world. From an abandoned building to a funny little praying mantis, I see the challenge of capturing the essence of my subject. Some of my prints are straight out of the camera, while others I have added textures to create a mood of how I envision the subject. Sometimes I get really inspired creating a composite print from several of my images. Regardless of the creative path I take, it is all driven from the passion I have for photography.
Mostly self taught, I have learned a great deal from other photographers and their works, as well as the internet. The greatest challenge for me was changing over to the DSLR cameras. I was very reluctant to try this new technology and put aside my film camera. When I finally gave into the DSLR, I was truly amazed. I quickly adapted to my new DSLR and have since bought a fourth. Every new advancement in the field of photography has offered a great challenge and learning experience.
My main focus in photography is landscapes and nature. I embrace the challenge of photographing the breathtaking moments around us. From the little hummingbirds in my gardens to the majestic sunset down by the beach. To be able to capture a moment in time is exhilarating for me–it is my passion.
