Statement
I would describe myself as a "mindful" and emotional photographer.  I value my time capturing photographs as an opportunity to be intuitive and introspective while comfortably alone.  I visit common places which become very special to me.  My landscape images, however, are rarely about the places I visit.  The photographs I make are personally contemplative, most often enigmatic, and thus become a general reflection of my personal psyche.
