I started my photography work with traditional film and a darkroom back in college. Graduating to digital has been pretty exciting and powerful as well. No more smelly chemicals and wasted negatives and prints. I only print the photos I really want. I also enjoy stitching very large panoramas and using filters and tools to make my images really unique. I enjoy all types of photography and appreciate any opportunity I get to use my camera and my creative skills.
I enjoy hiking, mountain biking, skiing and just plain getting outside and wandering around looking for the best expression of a moment. I carry my camera with me wherever I go and hope for those perfect moments when the light is just right.
Other times I set up my studio and work on Macro photographs of glass and other art objects. When I am done photographing, I want to make my images as unique as I can. To express the moment or object in a new way. To make it mine and share my vision.
I enjoy working with individuals and their families to produce art. I love to bring out the best of whoever I am working with and really find the spirit that makes the photograph special. Each person has their own unique light and quality and I enjoy discovering and portraying that for them.
I appreciate the fact that building is creating art. An architect has drawn a project blueprint and a contractor or builder has constructed it. An interior designer will put their talent into place and a landscape specialist will paint the outside with their own vision. A work of art created by many artists. As the photographer I have the special job of sharing this art.
