I have called The Carolinas home for more than 25 years. From the Appalachian Mountains to the coastal low country, one doesn’t have to travel far to bask in all that nature has to offer. As a self-taught photographic artist working with film in the late eighties I began to transition to digital in 2008. Today, I am a construction industry professional by trade but a photographer by heart.
The intricate details of a scene attract my attention; it might be the light teasing me to a spot hidden away or the texture of a simple subject or the pondering of a reflection or a shadow that changes as you step toward it. In general, I believe people tend to focus on the big picture when in fact there is a great deal more going on. All of the snippets that build to the WOW
My recent practice has been to capture in camera, light and motion with slow shutter speeds, long exposures and intentional blur or false focus along with works of shadows and capturing hearts in everyday elements. There has to be more that you derive from an image than just documentation of being in a certain place or time. If the image provokes thought or questions or stirs desire; there is where I find success of my art.
