am a Traveler, a person that wants to see it all. I love nothing more
than to experience the end of the day with sunset cruising! I look to
capture the interesting, the unexplored and feel the silence as
photography inspires me to look at the world around me and to see
through my lens.
influenced by light painters like Andrew Kincard and especially
Andrew Wyeth, I wanted to photograph the same way. “I love the
light, I listen to the silence and I create with excitement. I love
to photograph utter realism in the silent world of abandoned barns,
rivers and trees, to old things that have contrast and shadows. When
I am composing an image I look for the shadows the light offers and
focus on them as it is very spiritual for me.”
art is me, it is what I am and what I intend to be. Through my eyes
you can see my weaknesses and enjoy my strengths. Not perfect but you
can see where I have been and where I am going. I am and will always
be a work in progress from beginning to end and never to finish; I am
learning and absorbing all that I can. And in the end I want to
create art because it makes me feel good. Without the use of
Photoshop it is an amazing feeling to capture the beauty in what I
see with the techniques to achieve it.
feel the joy, the passion and feeling that I am right where I am
supposed to be!
