I practice mindful photography. I focus on being present in the moment, and I am open to photographing whatever calls to me. I set out to create images that capture not only what I see, but also the variety of emotions evoked by experiential moments. My work is more about the process of creating images, than the subject matter. The subjects range from landscapes and seascapes, to macro images, from images of nature, to abstract images, from portraits of my dogs to street photography. Sometimes I combine a group of images together to form a visual poem.
I learn about photography through independent study. Mentors, colleagues, books and workshops have contributed to my education. I have a Ph.D. and M.A. in psychology, as well as a B.S. in biology, and a background in neuroscience and meditation. This training informs my photography practice, coloring it with a unique perspective. My images have been purchased privately, awarded in juried gallery exhibits, and published.
