It all started when…

I picked up my first camera and clicked the shutter. That sound, knowing I froze a moment in time, really spoke to me. I consider myself a Documentary Photographer, not in the true definition of that term but documenting the world around me of subjects and issues that interest me. I love the Natural World, the Landscape, Conservation, and Environmental Portraiture. I express myself with my images in an artful way using various mediums and tools of the craft, from new technology to cameras a century old. It’s not about the tool it’s about the final result. I take great care in feeling the moment when I press that button. I may not know what it means at the time, but I have to trust my instinct that it meant something and I captured it accurately.
