Photography for me is a way to capture and share interesting things in the World around us. I particularly enjoy discovering and photographing found objects and the wonder of nature, in all forms, instead of shooting made up or contrived scenes. My goal as a photographer is to produce artistic images in which viewers can find inspiration and wish that they themselves had been beside me to discover the beauty and uniqueness of the scenes and objects with their own eyes.
I am self-taught. Towards this end, I have taken coursework at the Visual Arts Center in Summit, NJ, participated in multiple workshops and studied numerous books and articles relating to composition, art and computer image processing. Photography has prompted me to get outside and notice things and places that I never would have otherwise.
