Among the complex layers of life I enjoy discovering the hidden gems of visual beauty and from them creating photographs. The natural world is a special realm because so much of it exists with inherently satisfying harmony.
When I see this kind of balance in my viewfinder, I know I’ve found a visual treasure—lines may lead my eye to a focal point or colors might compel me to stop and see an unfolding moment or a hidden mystery is revealed. In those moments I’m aware I’m seeing treasures.
Whether that moment simply appears or I go searching, whether in nature or in our built environment, I do my best work when I’m open and receptive to seeing exactly what is in front of me. With my camera I sort the elements—light, shapes, colors, textures—into images that I find simple, satisfying and exciting. Then the click of the camera’s shutter frames a photograph that brings pleasure and inspires me to learn to see even more of our world.
After more than fifty years of looking through the lens of a camera, more often than not I find I'm still learning to see. I am pleased to be able to share my work with you.
