I am a photographer and Oscar nominated filmmaker. My love of cameras began at 4, when my parents recruited me to ride an alligator in one of their 35mm theatrical shorts. Cameras seemed like magical instruments. I moved to Hollywood Producing and/or directing TV shows/features like Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves, Backdraft, Blown Away, Moll Flanders, The Twilight Zone and the Outer Limits TV revivals. I have a passion for making still images that push photography to new levels of visual experience. I approach photographic subjects as sensory explorations, allowing intuition to guide me often making long exposures. Wether it is a long term study of waves on the North Shore in Oahu, Koi in ponds in California OR Images of artists at work. I use the camera as a paintbrush not a gun, I try to create in camera. But, I love reflections and will sometimes create "organic mandalas" from a single image image inverted on itself. When an image feels magical it floods my emotions.
