"photography is a love affair with life"

Photography is the way I use to capture and share my vision and my passage through this world. Sometimes it’s large landscapes and incredible moments other times it’s taking time to find the extraordinary in the daily mundane of life.
My goal is to arouse an awareness, so that we can all view our lives with the same inquisitiveness and sense of wonder as we had when we were young.
Photography is more than a collection of pretty images to me. Each captured image represents a moment, preserving the present and showing respect to the past. In photography, metal no longer rusts, and people never age. I was always told when photographing people, that the camera looks both ways, that the photographers emotions, personality, facial expressions are reflected back to the camera from the subject. I believe that this is also the case in nature and landscape photography, even street photography, our emotions, our view of life and how we see the world are also captured in the images we record
