Bio

I am a professional musician who has been working on cruise ships for the last three years, which really compliments my two other loves, traveling and photography. I have always loved taking photographs and have become more dedicated to photography over the last six years.

I have a passion for landscape photography with the desert being one of my favorite subjects. While stationed in California as a Marine, I was able to shoot from several desert locations including Joshua Tree, Death Valley and Iraq. Since then, working on cruise ships has taken me to many beautiful locations throughout the Eastern and Western Caribbean such as the U.S. and British Virgin Islands, Dominica, Puerto Rico, Jamaica, Costa Rica, Antigua, the Bahamas and more.

I have also included some of my "digital artwork" which I created in Photoshop by using a series of filters to alter the image, which is not always from a photo, into something entirely different. What results is an abstract image that is very subjective to interpretation, such as finding shapes in clouds. I am always interested in anyone else’s perception of these images since it comes from an unbiased perspective, being unaware of the image’s origin.

I am currently using a Canon G-9 with a Raynox .7X wide-angle conversion lens and a circular polarizer filter, but someday plan on upgrading to a DSLR.

I would appreciate any comments or critiques of my photos and please don’t hesitate to contact me. Thank you for stopping by and I hope that you enjoy your tour through my gallery.
