I couldn’t imagine a world without art.
A love for music came first in my life. I never felt it was enough to just listen to music. I always felt the need to play it. For me, it was the easiest and most meaningful language to speak until I discovered a way to express myself through photography.
I have been involved in photography for years. Originally, it was solely a form of self-expression. Later, I became involved in it commercially.
My interests in photographic genres run the gamut. I often wrap two cameras around my neck when I photograph–one for both color and black and white, and the other for capturing the world I see in infrared. Infrared can be all of these things to me: dreamy, rich, dramatic and magical.
I find that I have a hard time confining myself to a particular subject or theme using infrared because I’m constantly attracted and then distracted by all the potential that infrared provides.
I have been fortunate enough to have had exhibits in both Europe and the United States.
I have had much experience teaching as well and enjoy helping others to develop their photographic interests.
Presently, besides working a freelance photographer, I organize and lead small group photography tours to national parks and other locations.
