The Passion That Burns Within.
The art of photography has always been my passion. Over the years I have developed a talent for it and honed my skills in a variety of subjects; landscapes and rural scenes, city views, sports and portraits. In the last few years there has been a progression and refinement of the work from the more grandeur landscapes, such as Sedona Sunrise, to a more detailed approach, as with my "4 hour walk" to the Eiffel Tower and with my bodyscape nudes.
For over 30 years, photography has been an integral part of life for me. I see the world through the lens of a camera, and what I see, I attempt to share through my work. This began as a curiosity with my dad's photography equipment. I wanted to know what it did, how it worked, and how can I make it do what it did. I studied how the lens worked, and eventually was allowed to load y first roll of film. From that point I was off to the races. I bought my first film SLR in college, and soon after that I discovered motor racing. It was to become the predominant subject for me for the next 15 years or so.
Over time, my attention and focus have changed from racing cars to landscapes and rural scenes, to modern abstracts and cityscapes. I tend to concentrate on black and white for a while, then switch to color and then back again. The subject has evolved, but the goal is the same; to create something artful, beautiful, and emotional.
Since 2011, I have added painting to my creative toolkit. Having discovered it as a wonderful creative outlet, I now spend as much time or more on painting as I do with photography. I find that the two disciplines blend well together, and that my style in one benefits the other. I will continue to explore new horizons in each and further define a life-long body of work.
