With my camera I explore order and beauty in nature. I endeavor to capture those fleeting moments when light touches a leaf, a ripple, a wave. I love vibrant colors that energize. I also seek soft palettes that convey peace and serenity.
Seeking dramatic light, I rise at 4am, drive in the dark, trudge uphill, set up my tripod in twilight and wait for the first rays to light up the scene, highlighting the crests of dunes, throwing long shadows, and transforming the landscape into breathtaking highlights and shadows. .
I am a physician who lives and practices in the Chicago area. A Vermont trip in 1997 inspired an enduring passion for nature photography that has since “taken over my life.” A dozen photo workshops, a thousand rolls of film and voila! A second career as a fine art photographer was launched. I've studied with nationally renowned photographers and has taken courses at the Art Institute of Chicago.
I am most drawn to visual design and color. My award winning photographs have been displayed in juried exhibitions, art galleries and health care settings. I welcome assignment work and am a member of The Society for Arts in Healthcare.
