From the outset, my focus has been on photographing the natural world that is available to almost every person almost every day. I am not a travel photographer, although I do photograph the places I visit. My art does not require me to go to special places or look for special people, yet the places I go to and the people I photograph are special. I look to capture the sunrises, sunsets, landscapes, seascapes, cityscapes, trees, flowers, wildlife and people that the ordinary person can see almost anywhere. They have only to open their eyes and look around them. In a sense, I am trying to help people to see the people, places and things that surround them every day of their lives. The things they either can’t see or don’t wish to see whatever the reason.
I seek to capture these ordinary, everyday aspects of the natural world in ways that make them heroic. Simply put, I want the viewer of my art to look at my photographs and wonder “Why haven’t I ever seen that before?” I want them to look for the story behind the photograph. And I want them to ask themselves “Why? Why did he choose to make this photograph? What was his vision and do I share in it?”
It is said that a picture is worth a thousand words. So I invite you to look at my pictures, read the story they tell and share my vision, if only for a moment.
