I haven't spent years shooting for National Geographic, climbed the world's tallest mountains, stood in a raging river, or trekked into the most remote regions of the planet to get the "PERFECT" shot. I don't really even know what that means. Perfect shot.
I actually spent 36 years working for a large chemical company with most of my career in the compliance field. Not the most glamorous of jobs but one that afforded me an income to do what I love, photography.
Well then, what have I done? Remember that non-glamorous corporate job? It allowed me to experience a good portion of the United States, the Caribbean, and even some of Europe. I've spent time as an event and portrait photographer. I've taken landscapes, nature, wildlife, and even some liquid abstract photographs. I've done almost everything but no matter what area I've dabbled in I always come back to nature and landscapes. I am always in awe of what is around us. The things we see and take for granted. The things we don't see because we're too busy with our crazy lives.
I recently retired from the non-glamorous job and decided I would spend my time doing what I love. I've discovered that while I enjoy landscapes and nature, there was something missing. A photograph has 2 dimensions. I want people to feel an urge to touch my photographs. To feel the texture or see the movement. I started generating the feel of motion by using camera movement to replicate the sense of a speeding train. I use surrounding textures as overlays to my photographs to give the appearance and feel of canvas, paint, sand, etc. and slow my shutter speed down to create smooth silky waterfalls.
I strive to always exceed my own expectations, growing from one level to another, believing that photography is an ever-evolving art where there is never a limit to one’s creativity. I see photography as a platform to tell stories in artistic ways. A photograph does not need to be just a flat smooth surface with a pretty picture. Textures and motion create unique pieces of art.
I am a graduate of the New York Institute of Photography with three separate photography certifications: Professional Photography, Nature and Landscape Photography, and Travel Photography.
