Meet the Photographer
Many of us enjoy taking pictures of ourselves, others, special occasions or simply because an image appeals to us. I enjoy photography because a photograph is a moment captured in time, maybe unexpected, often times with purpose. Each photograph can be a random expression that beckons multiple interpretations similar to a painting.
Some of you may be familiar with my active involvement in taking sports photography for high school and local teams. Others may have seen photos that I've taken at horse shows, landscapes across the country, family portraits, special occasions, vacations and (of course) the family dog.
I believe that a great photo not only shows a simple subject but is able to craft an entire story around itself. A memorable photo is about composition that invites individual perspectives and nurtures creativity.
“To me, photography is an art of observation. It’s about finding something interesting in an ordinary place… I’ve found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them.” --Elliott Erwitt
I hope you find a few photos in my portfolio to be... interesting!
