I am passionate about my art. I have always loved making pictures and have carried around a camera most of my life. I progressed seriously into photography about 4 years ago after being inspired by a photographer I met at a bed and breakfast in Prescott, Arizona. My goal as an artist is to share my unique point of view through the lens and digital darkroom.
I am fascinated with old, abandoned things such as cars, trucks and historic buildings and have a long-term goal to shoot the entire Route 66 and all the Ghost Towns in Arizona. I also love the diversity of the landscape in the Southwest, and am on a mission to shoot as much of it as possible.
I use a technique called high dynamic range (HDR) to produce images that have much more detail than the average photo. These images can often have a surreal or illustrated look to them. To get that look, several exposures of the same scene are taken and merged using digital technology. The merged photos are then processed in the digital darkroom either to get that traditional photographic look or an illustrative look.
