Samurai without a sword is a same as samurai with a sword only without the sword

As a photographer I try to record what I feel are precious or even sacred moments. This is true whether I am working on portraiture, landscape or most other disciplines. I believe I am most successful doing this when I capture an image that evokes in the viewer feelings similar to those that I experienced while taking it. For me, photographs aren’t just ornaments or keepsakes, but also mental doorways that can lead us to unique moments and places in time or inside ourselves.

I accomplish my work by shooting in color as well as black and white.My workhorses are my Nikon 35mm DSLR. My goal when shooting is to capture as pure and perfect an image as possible because I don’t like to use too many “tricks” in either the conventional or digital darkroom.

I enjoy photography because it is like collecting the impossible. It also offers me an opportunity to share my perspective and vision with other people. It is always my intention to capture and present something that they can connect with in a positive way. Ideally, I think I am most often looking for moments of peace and thoughtfulness. The sun waking the sleeping earth, the innocence of a newborn or the timeless wisdom in the eyes and faces of the elderly, all engage me and I find moments of joy in them.

In a complex world where we are constantly bombarded with painful images and news from seemingly ever-increasing media outlets it is important that we know that we are still surrounded by moments of profound beauty, and I do my best to at least capture hints of their twinkles and shadows.
