Originally I studied painting and sculpture. I took my first photography course out of curiosity, but it soon became my preferred creative medium. I tend to photograph whatever captures my eye or imagination, but I primarily prefer architectural abstracts. Since I began looking through a lens, I realized that I was searching for beauty with my camera. I will always be totally fascinated by the ability to capture a fleeting magical moment of beauty through the mechanism of light passing through a lens, and then being able to hand over that same moment to someone else.
