As a photographer, I challenge myself to create images that offer a refreshingly interesting angle, perspective, or viewpoint. Every shot I take should reflect vibrant colors, rich textures and interesting shapes. Every image should have the viewer pausing to ponder, reflect, reminisce, imagine, and perhaps even to become totally absorbed. Whatever I shoot, it's with an eye towards creating an indelible impression.
In viewing any image, I encourage the viewer to ask themselves a few simple questions. Does the image catch your eye? Is it interesting and intriguing? Does it stimulate your mind, your thinking, your sense of wonder? Does it inspire you? Do you love it? Would it be something you’d want to view repeatedly, every day – enough to hang on your wall? Would it beautify your world or contribute greatly to the ambiance of your home? If the answer to all these questions is yes, then I consider my job done.
Every photograph I sell comes in its own acid-free, archival quality presentation mat kit, placed inside a resealable, crystal clear archival envelope. Once purchased, each can be opened up, placed directly into an appropriately-sized frame and hung on any wall, hopefully to be admired while remaining fresh and inspirational for many years.
If any of the images on this website catch your eye, or if you have any questions or comments about the images you see, please do not hesitate to contact me. Your feedback is welcomed and greatly appreciated. Thanks, and enjoy viewing!
