A Personal Statement re photography
"Unfortunately photography is too common. For many it is difficult to take it seriously and to even consider that it could be used for artistic expression. The viewer must make the decision between seen or snap. If they choose seen, then they would have an appreciation of what the photographer is trying to convey or how he responds to certain lighting conditions or subject matter. The first hurdle though is accepting photography as an art form".
"With my photography I am drawn to the beauty and the unusual in nature. When possible I try to express my feelings about the landscape and what I see. It becomes a visual communication. Hopefully it will give others an appreciation of what is there and with luck it will elicit an emotional response from the viewer".
