I’ll shoot nearly anything for money so my subjects have spanned a wide range. But nature is what really motivates me as a photographer. The planet we live on is beautiful and it doesn’t need filters or Photoshop to be astonishingly gorgeous. BUT, that’s been done before and every scene is better as an experience than an image. Untouched images are adequate but I much prefer the smooth dodging and burning contained in an Ansel Adams print or the modern edits of cutting edge artists. There’s more to be brought out of a scene than a well lit and composed image. A camera is a tool and using that tool correctly is only a piece of achieving an image that’s worth a damn. Perception is everything and easily replicable. So, I like to experiment with composition, light, and post processing to achieve something new or to emphasize the point I’m trying to make with an image. As I progress through this artistic journey I find myself more and more motivated by the graphic nature of imagery in relation to other mediums. I’m currently working on a comic, a series of acrylic paintings, nature photography, and creating graphics.
Thanks again for checking out my images. Take care!
