Ever since 1999 I've been held captive by the turn of the new century, which meant the arrival of a futuristic world. I photograph the desert as it seems to hold the essence of the future. Many places inspire me, but the Mojave Desert seems to hold the most fantasy. Phototronica is my art of capturing something that is futuristic in digital format. I call the file or photo a phototron.
When I'm out shooting I practice Leave No Trace. It's just me, my tripod, and camera bag. I don't use props or travel with excess gear. When editing photos I keep the the processing to a minimum. I enjoy the realness of the natural light, colors, and atmospheres in the landscapes I capture for it's not just a landscape, it's a fantasy that plays out in my head.
