Hmmm, photography, what it means to me…"to me", that’s pretty much the only criteria of what’s really important when capturing a moment in time…a capture of the past or of the future…a feeling remembered or a feeling anticipated…as long as there is a feeling.

Images are the capture of light, the canvas is the human figure for me…how they interact is the basis of my artwork…images must be beautiful and generate an emotion …anything less is just another “picture”.

I seek no guidance from a teacher or do I have a desire to teach the mechanics of creativity, as there are none…the camera is no more than a brush, pencil, or crayon, it is only the tool used to capture a creation. How the tool is mastered requires commitment, study, experimentation, and patience. The true art comes from the soul, the eye, and the dedication to reach a level beyond one’s expectations. A good photographer is the master of his tool; a great photographer is the master of his imagination.

Ideas are both successful and unsuccessful, the degree of which is judged by the creator and the audience, and I think in the long run, the creator’s opinion is the only one that actually matters. My goal is to satisfy my creative desire and hope someone viewing has their own reaction to my work that brings them an emotion triggered from their own experiences or anticipations. It’s not my goal to coalesce an agenda, but to bring the gift of an emotion to the viewer.
