My work has been developed through experimentation of the digital media. I have been working towards developing a style that is a hybrid of photography mixing it with textural elements. The objective is to add a level of depth that is not normally seen with photography alone. By taking what could be classified as documentary images combined with textured layers the image gains a depth that straight photography lacks, which is a more emotional connection with the original location/setting and with the viewer. My current body of work captures the landscapes and birds of Alberta. As I continue my experimentation I hope to develop the techniques to other areas.
Today digital photography is so prevalent and there are so many wonderful images that cover a wide range of subjects. At some point they all seem to blend into a rather bland representation of the world and moments that we live in. My work begins with a strong digital image and is developed from there.
