Thank you for visiting my website!
Based on Florida's Space Coast, my primary focus is on nature and wildlife. I also consider myself a generalist because I enjoy the challenges associated with various genre of photography. In fact, I believe it helps to enhance my photographic skills and creatively.
With respect to photography, my ultimate goal is to ensure the elements of light, shadow, timing and composition are in sync to fully capture the mood and character of a scene or subject.
My photographic goals and vision encompass three basic concepts:
1) To inspire and evoke emotion from a person viewing my images.
2) To produce an image that depicts an accurate and natural looking representation of a subject, or best represents my creative vision.
3) To create artistic, timeless, and technically excellent works of
I shoot solely in RAW format and image adjustments are almost always needed. I try to keep adjustments to a minimum. Adjustments, if needed, may be as simple as removing a distracting object from a scene, or cropping an image to create more impact or improve composition. I might also enhance the sharpness, color and contrast of an image or convert a color image to monochrome, sepia or tinted.
There are a few occasions when I use more complex, creative techniques that
I feel are necessary to meet my artistic goals and vision. I hope it will
be fairly obvious to a viewer if such techniques have been applied to an
image. Although I have not done so thus far, if I happen to combine one
or more elements from one or more images into a single image, I will not
present it to you as an original, unmodified image.
