Fine Art Nature and Landscape Photography
Hello and welcome to my virtual photo gallery. I am grateful for the opportunity to share some of my favorite photographic pieces with you and it is my hope that you will find one or two images that move you and bring a little extra joy to your life.
Although there are other photographic genres that appeal to me, I have always been enamored with nature and landscape photography. Over the years, I've been fortunate enough to have the opportunity to visit and photograph in some really beautiful places, but regardless of where I end up exploring, my mission as a photographer remains the same, and that is to capture and create an image that is much more than just a visual record of a particular place and time. Rather, I find no greater personal satisfaction than being able to use my camera and my personal point of view as a photographer, to capture a unique image, one that will later be matted and framed to become a piece of photographic art. With that in mind, if I come home with even one image that makes me stop and say "WOW!" every time I see it, then I would consider the trip a success. It is that visceral "wow" response that we photographers crave, but often struggle to capture.
I am fortunate to live in southern California because there are so many great places for photography that I doubt that I will ever run out of places to explore with my camera. Living less than 5 miles from the nearest beach, I am often drawn to photograph the amazing power and beauty of the ocean. However, if I get in my car and drive, I can be in the pristine desert of Joshua Tree National Park in just a few hours. But regardless of where I end up exploring, I often find myself so involved with the technical details of the moment that I frequently have to remind myself to stop and step away from the camera, and just appreciate the beauty of the moment. It is often in those moments of contemplation and observation that my photographic eye is drawn to a new view or compositional element, and then I am back to the camera and clicking the shutter, and the quest for the elusive "WOW!" photograph continues!
Thank you again for stopping by my website. I hope that you enjoy your time browsing through the various galleries.
