My photography takes me around the globe photographing landscapes, people, streets and urban environments using methods such as Multiple Exposures and Intentional Camera Movement.
I don’t necessarily photograph subjects. I photograph the way things make me feel. Admittedly, it may a bit of a strange concept, but it works – and it’s the best way to describe my approach. My goal has always been to show emotions in my art rather than a simple visual depiction of a person, place or thing.
Much of what I shoot is done spontaneously without preconceived ideas. I let what is around me dictate what is to be photographed.
Shooting photos is only the first step – a beginning. I take the raw images and create what I see in my mind’s eye. Discovering textures present in the shot and sometimes adding them after. Enhancing the contrast of light and dark to create the mood and emotions I felt and feel while creating the image. In the end, it’s all about listening to my heart and mind and creating a visual representation of what I feel the moment the shutter is released.
