My camera is an excuse to be out in nature, to walk in the woods, to wander the beach, get down in the grass and see the things I discovered as a child. I am happiest with a camera in my hand and a lens that offers a different view of the world. I can spend hours seeing the repeated patterns of nature, the changing light, the way colors reflect the sky. The longer I stay, the deeper the experience with my camera evolves. When I return to the studio and download my raw images, the editing process becomes as important as the shoot. My vision becomes a photograph that reflects my personal experience. Sharing it with you completes my creative circle.
