Art is not what you see, but what you make others see"

Edgar Degas

I am focused on crafting images which are both technically excellent and artistically beautiful. My photography explores the art in the world, both the simple and chaotic, in close details and at a distance. My working philosophy as an artist is all about commitment to the craft. I wake up every morning with excited anticipation of breathtaking images that may lay ahead.  

I have an affinity with wild places where both the solitude and desire to capture light and the beauty of nature draw me back time and time again. The thirst for adventure within me led to travelling the world with my camera to record exotic locations and capture the essence of the people that live there. 

My photography attempts to portray the emotions I felt to the viewer at the place and time I pressed the shutter. If my fine art photographs can transport you to that moment by stirring these emotions in you then I have gone someway to achieving my vision.
