My inspiration for the photos I create is based on the world around me. I’ve been creating photos since early childhood when my father gave me a Kodak Brownie. A few college courses and a lifetime in Law Enforcement, and here we are.
My primary interest in anything I shoot is the interaction between light and shadow within the scene. Light, or the lack thereof, is everything in a photo. It sets the mood, it highlights objects, it hides objects, it creates a contrast that draws the eye in, and around the frame.
While my primary interest is light and shadow, my passion is landscape. I want to portray the world of beauty before it all disappears. Scenes of misty mountains, sunlight filtered through trees, skies full of clouds above the plains and deserts, and sunsets.
I take custom orders and can recommend local vendors for framing and matting options. I am conscious of the aspect ratio the photo is in and will recommend sizes which don’t affect the composition of the photo.
