Photographers Statement:

I often say that I like photography because it gives me an excuse to stare, to observe something and not look odd while doing so.  I find photography provides an enhanced sense of visual awareness, it allows me to document, to a certain degree, what my eye sees but it also allows me to see beyond the capabilities of the eye. This part of photography truly interests me: the art forms ability to go beyond what nature has given us. 

I enjoy how photography forces me to become more aware of light itself. This vital energy source is what a photographer must learn to see in different ways: the quality, the angle, the different colors it takes on.... I find it only fitting that this energy form that permeates the universe, is the very energy source that makes much of life possible. It is a joy to study photography; in essence it is the study of truly seeing things in a different light.

To increase awareness and compassion is my primary goal as an artist and as a person. My hope is that my images can inspire a sense of wonder and appreciation for the natural world. I wish for others to see the world and life for what they are: a delicate balance that can easily be tipped and destroyed, a constant process of becoming, and a beautiful gift. If I can convey this understanding to others, if I can stop an individual, make them wonder, or feel at peace for a second then that will make all the difference.
