My primary interest has been in nature photography stemming from an early interest in the outdoors and the natural world. I'm trying to broaden my interests into other areas such as landscapes, architecture and abstraction. I view photography as a form of artistic expression and love to create beautiful images. I prefer natural lighting and generally use color film, although I'm starting to become re-interested in black and white. I particularly enjoy close-up work for nature photography. I've been using a 35 mm SLR but am becoming more interested in digital imaging as it improves.
