Announcement   Hello friends, thank you for visiting my gallery! The images I have on display here are some of the most beautiful, inspiring, and compelling scenes life has shared with me so far. I have practiced the art of photography passionately for over ten years, developing the skills I need to perfectly translate my ideas and experiences into photographs. I hope to capture more than sunsets, trees, and oceans in my images. I want to capture the feeling, essence, and indefinable qualities of the places I visit. Sometimes the images are beautiful, sometimes curious, sometimes a little scary. All of these elements combine to make life the magical experience that it is. So pour yourself a cup of tea and sit down with my work for a few minutes. Maybe you'll catch a glimpse of something truly amazing!

About

Earth Explorer: Have Camera, Will Travel

I fell in love with photography about 15 years ago, and since that day, we've been inseparable. I use my camera as a tool to explore the world around me and the soul within. I love that my camera can see things my eyes can't. I love to experiment with very long and very short exposures, capturing a moment (or a few hours) of time and space. I want my work to reflect my deep respect and admiration for nature, for animals, and for our universe.

There are few things I wouldn't do in pursuit of a great image. I've climbed mountains, forded rivers, stayed still in the presence of unfamiliar eyes glowing in the night, and battled thick black clouds of swarming mosquitoes. I've shivered in the cold, sweated in the heat, gone hungry and been sick. And at the end of it all, I come home glowing with joy if I have captured one beautiful image. But that isn't where the story ends. Capturing the image (or series of images, depending on the piece) is only the first step in my journey. I handle each piece with extreme care, cleaning it pixel by pixel to remove any traces of dust or imperfections that don't belong in the scene. I then work with the piece over several hours (or days) experimenting with different processes until I feel like I have captured the true spirit of the subject I have photographed. I never use canned effects or mass produced digital filters in my images. I much prefer to let each piece speak to me. My goal is always to preserve the integrity of the scene, while also allowing the mood or feeling of the subject to shine through. I don't believe photography has to be a direct copy of what our eyes see. I believe photography is an art form with the potential to be extremely expressive and original.
