Artist Statement
The art of photography has little to do with technology: cameras, lenses, film type or megapixels. Rather, how we see and then use our ‘tools’. For me, how I select elements to be included or left out in creating my compositions and how natural weather and lighting influence colors and shadows in rendering of the image.

The majority of my images are recorded using medium and large format film cameras. The film is scanned to a digital file and I print from that file. Most recently my macrophotography is done with a digital capture and image-stacking software to provide greater depth-of-field and sharpness.

“The rare moment is not the time there is something worth seeing, but the moment we are capable of seeing it” – Joseph Krutch
