Accolades
"Subjectively, I want to call these my own. There, I said it. I'm rarely so covetous, but this type of natural landscape/abstraction is really where I would like to be with new work. But, alas, it is yours so I must find another way, and that is the way with art, isn't it? We are inspired by others, desire to make work like them, and then in the process we find our own way." ~ Marc Ullom, Academy of Art University Instructor







about


STATEMENT

I trust in the spontaneity of the moment. I trust in what I see. I trust that there is a reason for wanting to capture an image and share it with the world. The reason may be perfectly clear or it may take years of thinking and photographing to figure it out. Either way, the reason is always there. I photograph the ordinary because in the ordinary there is a miracle.
