Artist Statement

It has been said that "Art illuminates the soul of the artist". Photographic art is my chosen medium to communicate my personal inspirations and experiences.As a professional photographer with over 25 years experience I believe it is the photographer not the camera that is the instrument."Success is what happens when 10,000 hours of preparation meet one moment of opportunity". It is my photographic goal to make the not obvious.Through my use of fine art printing and alternative processes, my art form transcends the everyday photographic print.
