About
Over the years my photographic interests have primarily centered on creating landscape, flower and nature images with an occasional venture into street and architectural pictures. In many of my photographs I strive to evoke an emotion, raise an uncertainty, or create a sense of movement by either isolating key elements or blurring the subject matter. These impressionistic photographs are not unlike the images we remember as we wake from our dreams. Whether a photograph is impressionistic or not, my goal is to share an experience that I found captivating and to encourage the viewer to pause and reflect upon a visual drama in our world.
