Artist Statement

Creating an ethereal atmosphere and isolating the subject by the use of long exposure techniques has always been the main focus in my photography. This enables me to produce a depth and presence in the objects that would otherwise be impossible, and create imagery based on my inner vision. I am not documenting the scene as-is, but rather stepping away from reality and sharing my interpretation of the subject so that you will look with a different eye to your surroundings.

It is the clean shapes and lines of modern architecture that I am driven to the most, and my preferred method of showcasing these elements is by stripping away color and producing black and white imagery. By doing so, I am enabled to focus on light and shadow, which I then use to shape the object. Finally, toning the imagery in blue adds the modern touch of personality that you see in the final result.

Falling in love with this style of photography about 6 years ago has allowed me ample time to hone this technique to my vision and expression. This is a style that is ever evolving, and while I’m extremely proud of the images I produce today, I too will likely evolve. It is, after all, my goal to continue to grow as an artist and push the bounds of my skill.

All images are printed on museum quality paper using archival inks and printing methods. While my imagery may be modern, my print presentation remains classic. All steps in this process are handled by me from capture to the final framed art piece. What you see in my works is truly a personal product from start to finish and you can have comfort in knowing that it has been created with one goal in mind… to be enjoyed for a lifetime.
