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.
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.
