ABOUT THE PHOTOGRAPHER

I have had a passion for fine art, design and photography throughout my career. After earning a BFA at Indiana University/Bloomington in the areas of design and photography, I honed my photographic capabilities at NYU and at the International Center of Photography in New York City.

My background as a designer has a significant effect on the composition of my photos and has helped me understand the nuances of balance and light. At times I see symmetry or graphic elements that motivate and influence the many choices I make behind the camera. My skill as a photographer is the culmination of a career steeped in visual elements that have inspired my passion for creative photographic images. As I travel or roam familiar locales, I seek out details and evocative images in the everyday world that are often overlooked. The beauty I find in mundane or simple objects often surprises me. Likewise, magnificent and extraordinary images in the natural world are equally intriguing when perceived with a specific point of view. It is my desire and goal to use my talent as a photographer to capture and print each photo with an artistic result that provokes an interest in why that particular scene or detail was important to me.
