Welcome To My Vision
My vision in photography has changed throughout the years as I have toured the Pacific
Northwest's many wonders. In the beginning I challenged myself to capture those scenes I came upon, but then after many rolls of film and given the great expense of developing those thousands of rolls of film, I began to understand if I were to stand in the exact location, at differing times when the light was more pleasing, those same scenes came alive.
I have learned, no matter how hard one tries, Mother Nature has always held the wild card in our endevours in capturing those scenes. We, as photographers, must master the Art of Photography through the capture and manipulation of light, depth of field, and of course, the compositional elements and their balance within the scene. Every succesful image one may capture, no matter if it is landscape, wildlife, or in portraiture, depends solely on all these elements.
Every tree has its own voice, every animal and every bird has distinguishing traits, and every person has characteristics that will compliment their portrait as the photographer chooses to look beyond what is presented before them in order to capture their subjects true character.
