  • More Tips on Fireworks Photography June 30, 2013 I don’t know of many photographers who don’t get excited and anxious about shooting fireworks. There is something about them that evokes a lot of emotion in people, not only because they are aesthetically pleasing, but also they are spectacular to watch. In addition to the blog I posted last year (still available on the […] ... Read More
  • Relationship of Shutter Speed and Aperture June 29, 2013 Shutter speed (time)and aperture (intensity) are related to each other by something called reciprocity.

My Mission

My mission, as an artist and nature photographer is to promote a relationship between people and our natural world through my fine art photographs. Browse my galleries to experience my artistic vision and become immersed in an adventure exploring the different planes of meaning you will discover in many of my compositions.

Creative Artistry

My photographs tell the story of who I am and are symbols of secrets in my soul and emotions in my being. My photography is ultimately about sharing, connecting the viewer with my images. I am an intuitive photographer. Meaningful photography evokes an exploration of different planes of meaning. Something in the portrayal of the subject matter instigates a journey; our mind's eye goes in search of the mysterious dimensions of our soul to make a connection with the feelings generated from our perception.

Visual Design and Composition

Through the various photographic styles of my work - macro (close-up), landscape (scenic) and intimate environmental photography - and my personal vision I have attempted to represent the many facets of nature. You will find many of my pictures to appear almost painterly. I enjoy the challenge of using my photographic skills in creating images that convey a quiet, subdued power. I attempt to use visual design techniques and composition to support the inherent design of the subject matter. Space, color, composition and other visual design elements (the formal qualities) are important to me and, I'm sure, the viewer. However, it is the expression that makes a work of art. I hope you will feel that in my photographs.

The Big Picture

In sharing these images with you, it is my desire to nourish that part of your being that connects with the natural world. Consider my photography food for your soul. Nature is a miraculous source of mystery and marvel. If people can look at the various connections within the landscape and appreciate it, we can nourish that habitat so that the life forms within it can prosper. If that happens, we are enriched. Walking mindfully out in nature, you start to see the big picture.
