Never stop creating
“One doesn’t stop seeing. One doesn’t stop framing. It doesn’t turn off and turn on. It’s on all the time.” – Annie Leibovitz
The quote above sums up photography for me–Photography is my way of sharing with others how I see the world around me. My photos are mainly from adventures traveling the US and hiking in various parks, where I enjoy the challenge of finding interesting shapes and juxtapositions in nature and making the most of situations I discover.
I find that the little scenes often overlooked by others are the ones that fuel my photographic creativity. I am always looking beyond the obvious and photographing the things that others might not even notice like an acorn sprouting, the patterns made by rust and faded paint on an old automobile, or textures in the windblown sand of a local beach. Sometimes the most amazing images are right there under your feet.
I live in the Denver, CO area, but I grew up in Maryland, where I was active in photo clubs and taught at Capital Photography Center. Photography provides me with an artistic escape from my day job as an aerospace engineer. I enjoy teaching others and sharing my passion and I am available to speak or judge at your camera club. Some presentations I have given include:
How to See in B&W
Abstracts All Around Us.
I am also available for private instruction.
