About Me

DSC01056About-me-photo

Photography has taught me to see. Before photography I could only look. Seeing is much more exciting. It is my hope that through my work you will be able to see more clearly the created  world and the world we continue to create.

I have always felt that music touches the soul in a way that nothing else does. Music helps one feel the power beyond. But maybe song is not singular with this endeavor. Maybe art can strike the soul as powerfully as music.

Some of my most exciting work is the time when I am alone behind the lens. My calmest time in life is at night shooting a scene that cannot normally be seen but is always there; the milky way, an hour after sunset with the rich blue sky, a blue heron standing in the water on a foggy night. Life is always around us if we can only see.

George DeWolfe, a master printer said  “A masterpiece is a simple act of responding authentically to the world in a moment of time.” When I click the shutter I may be in a crowd of people or I may be in a gentle breeze but I am always alone looking through the lens trying to capture the moment, not a second in time but that fleeting moment.

I enjoy the creative process. It is my hope that my images provide you many moments of enjoyment.
