Photography is my way of being in close relationship with nature. Since childhood, I had an innate curiosity about how the natural world worked. As an adult, I discovered that photography gave me the means for understanding expansive and exquisite landscapes, moving and colorful water, wildlife, and especially how light is in relationship with all of Earth’s natural elements.
In my early photography days, I was not aware of how often I gravitated toward the small details in an otherwise expansive and beautiful landscape. Becoming aware of my natural inclination to get up close and personal with nature’s small details has inspired me to be fully present and open to photographic possibilities as they emerge.
Patience is my built-in capacity to pause in nature; to see, hear, touch, taste and smell everything happening around me during solitary moments in time.
