Two of my great passions in life are traveling and photography. I believe that traveling broadens one’s view of the world. Experiencing other cultures, meeting people from other communities and countries and seeing the beauty, and sometimes ugliness, of the world has helped me understand that all of our lives are at once interconnected and individual.
It has made me better appreciate my own home and culture as well as that of the people I’ve met and the lands I’ve seen and I have become a much more tolerant person as a result. Through my photography I seek to document my own personal experiences, to capture scenes and events as I see them and to share with others the beauty and diversity of the world I’ve seen. As the images of other photographers have inspired me to explore the world, I hope my own contributions will inspire others to do the same. I view the art of photography as a subtractive process, a distilling of reality into a personal vision. As such I often use the tools of modern photography – different film stocks, filters, digital enhancement – to try to capture in an image, the emotions I felt at the moment I tripped the camera’s shutter. After grad school I embarked upon a series of trips to far-flung locations, camera always in hand, which resulted in an ever growing library of slides and negatives documenting my adventures. In 2000 i started to teach my self photography as a professional photographer. Thus, a serious hobby began to transform into a business. Today I license images for all manners of commercial and editorial use and also sell fine art prints. I specializes in Advertising photography and my work includes subjects ranging from Products, Food, Fashion, & interiors.
I also specializes in creating large format and panoramic images from stitched mosaics of digital frames and scanned slides. I shoot with both 35mm film cameras, using fine-grained color slide film exclusively, and with digital SLR, and Medium Format with Digital Back 32 MP. Read Less
