Photography is the most immersive form of art I’ve ever experienced. As a young boy, I excelled at drawing – with pencil and charcoal. I took great pleasure in that endeavor but there was always something missing with the experience. Only as an adult did I become first interested and then enamored with photography. A photograph is so much more than the instant the shutter clicks. I enjoy every aspect of the process: the scouting of a location for composition and light, the patience required to sit for hours while you wait for 15 seconds of ideal conditions, and the editing thereafter to create an image that captures the elements of the scene.
My objective with every photograph is to create something that reflects how I felt both physically and emotionally in the scene itself. I strive to please my own eye first and subsequently hope that others connect to the photograph as well. I know I’ve succeeded when I continue to look at photographs I’ve seen hundreds of times over the years.
