Near Sedona, Arizona, USA

Early morning at Slide Rock on Highway 89a north of Sedona. The sunlight on the high red-rock cliffs above reflected onto the surface of the water that was best realized with a longer exposure.

I started photographing when I was 14, taking slides with an early Pentax 35mm. I took a photography class at 16 and began using a 4×5 view camera with my own darkroom. In 2002 digital emerged which envigorated my passion in the visual arts. In the last 5-6 years I’ve started documenting and developing a visual framework to cultivate “seeing” that can be shared with others on their path of becoming visual artists.
