Photography—thoughtfully practiced—is about more than recording images of people, places and things. Photography is a medium of communication, and in order for our pictures to effectively communicate we need to be conscious of the ways in which our subjects affect us. We need to be conscious of how we identify things and how we want others to see them. I strive to capture the atmosphere of the moment, as well as the color and drama inherent to the subject. I enjoy detail in my photos gravitating towards telephoto and macro shots, but love to travel ~ digitally capturing landscapes, architectural interiors and exteriors, people and anything to do with history.

Bio

Abandoning film in 2003 and shooting exclusively digital with Canon cameras, I enjoy working with available light. I create in several disciplines including oil painting and watercolors as well as photography. I work with a 24-105mm IS USM lens and 100-400mm telephoto + a great tripod as mainstays with several other lens for specialty work. I love the outdoors so I gravitate towards nature (animals) and landscapes outside and macro for interior shots. In another life I'll be a graphic artist professionally as I love the post production process of Photoshop!!
