I have an emotional connection with every photograph I take. If I’m not emotionally reacting to it, I can’t expect a viewer to do the same.
When I shoot, I find natural surroundings that grab my attention and then build the photo around that environmental ambiance.
Sometimes a planned day of photography for me means embracing unpredictability and allowing the subject and conditions to direct my path.
It wasn’t until I discovered my own love of nature and photography that I started giving my surroundings a second glance. I’m always internalizing what I see and how it makes me feel.
I focus strictly on subject matter rather than relying on theme shooting. I enjoy the subject’s atmosphere. My approach puts me in a position to embrace the outdoors.
Fall, my preferred season to shoot, has a certain feeling to me. It’s cool and crisp. The air has a certain taste to it. I capture it the way I feel it without disturbing the integrity of the scenery. I hope my portrayal of realism, touched by my own interpretation of the scene, will transform you from being an observer to an experiencer.
