Welcome to my website. Photography has been a long-standing hobby/obsession of mine. I blame my father for first putting an old Konica with a hand-held light meter in my hands when I was twelve. Although I have attended a few courses over the years, I am almost entirely self-taught: books, magazines, websites, instructional videos, Youtube, randomly pushing buttons on Photoshop - you get the idea. The point being, the information is all out there if you are willing to learn. What I love about photography is what I love about my profession (dentistry); it is the blending of the technical and the artistic - it massages both sides of my brain!
As you sift through my seemingly disparate collection of images - taken in different locations, sometimes trying to capture specific moods, sometimes not, sometimes influenced by the work of others and sometimes not; driven by purpose, passion, and a healthy dose of good fortune - you may wonder, "What has been my inspiration? What is the common thread that unites them?" When you distill it to it's essence, it is the light. I am a watcher of light.
My photographs are a testament to not only what I have seen, but how I have seen. Put simply, the true art of photography is about seeing. The camera is merely the instrument for conveying unto others how one views the world. As such, a collection of photos provides a window into the mind of the artist.
Welcome to my mind.
