My life is made up of the simple, sensitive, emotions towards the people, the world, and the lives around me. My love is my family, arts, and design, seeing the world with new eyes each day. Photography is my passion and life’s work. My goal is to always show the viewer something different from a point of view they hadn’t imagined or seen before. Photography is an artistic process involving all the senses and I only use the mechanic’s of the camera to enhance those senses.
I believe you create an image cones from within. Use your eyes and mind; never rely on the camera and especially not the processing of the image. Images should be judged on their content not on computer enhancements. There are no “best or finished images” only the images yet to be created.
