I treasure the
special magic of the
photographic moment.

For me, photography – no matter the process – is merely a means to accurately translate my artistic vision onto paper. I treasure the special magic of the photographic moment — whether the photo is recorded on film or digitally — and the integrity of the image produced. I only use the methods or techniques needed to arrive at the image I visualized at the time of exposure. Art is personal both for the artist and the audience and I try to keep my images as true to my personal vision as possible.
