Artist Statement

I believe there is a lot of natural beauty in this world, much of which goes unnoticed every day. Through my photography I attempt to capture a sliver of that beauty to bring it to people’s attention. Most of my photos put nature as the subject, which reflects how much I value my connection to the natural world. Portraits and photos of mankind’s creations are less prevalent in my work, but even those are usually in the context of their connection to the environment.

The majority of my photographs are captured with digital cameras, including some infrared, but occasionally I return to my photographic roots and work with film. I prefer a mix of both color and black and white. More recently, I have begun printing some of my photos using the cyanotype process.
