Unique locations, animals, people, and a variety of situations that are often overlooked inspire my photography. Beauty usually goes unnoticed and unappreciated, yet it reflects aspects of our humanity that are memorable to capture with a camera. I strive to capture moments of beauty and magic. Whether photographing people or landscapes, the same approach applies. I am placing myself at the moment, being patient, and having faith that something magical will unfold. A sense of reverence has fueled my photography of the natural world and its remarkable beauty. I resonate with images that depict a peaceful coexistence between humans and nature. These quiet moments with my camera bring me back to my childhood: exploring, being curious, dreaming, seeing, and breathing in the beauty surrounding me. In the evolution of my photography, trying new techniques in analog and digital photography humbles me. I’ve learned that creativity requires a perennial sense of playfulness, finding that childlike fascination for the magic contained within each opportunity in life.
