While I have grown up around the business of photography as a result of my parent's profession, I have only been pursuing a personal career in photography for the past 3 years. During that time, I have begun to build a name for myself and a certain quality for my photography. One of my favorite and most fitting comments that my photography ever received is that it is creatively technical. I love an expression such as this being used with my photography because it's my intention to create and present work which is creative enough to engage a wide audience and technical enough to hold the engagement. While my work varies across several genres of photography, my passion is landscape and long exposure seascapes. These types of scenes move me and hopefully move the viewer as well. I'm captivated by the concept that a camera has the ability to capture something the human eye can't necessarily capture - time. In one photographic frame, I can capture and present anywhere from half a second of time up to 5 minutes.
There are many photographers who's work inspires me but I can easily say that I find myself drawn to study the works of Clyde Butcher, Ansel Adams, Cole Thompson, Michael Levin and Michael Kenna.
In the future, I'd like to see myself continuing to produce the type of work that I am now, only advanced and still closely tied to whatever my passion happens to be at that point.
