My philosophy is that photography is a blend of art and science. I strive to incorporate that concept in every image that I capture. The goal of my work is for the viewer of each image to not just "see" the image but, more importantly, experience and feel the "spirit" of the photograph. Although I have significant experience with commercial and real estate photography, my true passion lies with more eclectic subject matter.
As an antique automobile aficionado, I especially enjoy capturing the essence and beauty of the "golden age" of automobiles and trucks. The magnificence of this bygone era is best represented by the elaborate and stylish hood ornaments that are the subject matter of many of my photographs.
Having lived my entire life in the Great American West, I truly enjoy capturing images that bring the West to life. Many of my photographs enable the viewer to feel the essence of the mountains and both the simplicity and the complexity of nature. The viewer will also see how I blend history with scenery in many of my photographs.
Finally, some photographs are simply fun to capture. Photographs that make the viewer smile, laugh or, simply, "reflect". Whether it is a cocktail martini with the "splash" of a lime or a simple droplet of water or a reflective Monarch Butterfly, a simple photograph can speak a thousand words. That basic concept guides all of my work.
