I try to portray environments as the subjects in most of my photographs whether they are natural, artificial, or the intersection of the two. Of course, I don't limit myself to this type of photography, but, it's certainly what I'm drawn to over everything else.
Some of my influences include William Eggleston, Edward Burtynsky, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Andreas Gursky, and Julius Shulman. Even if you can't tell, their work means one thing or another to me and often comes to mind when trying to create my own.
Ultimately, at the end of the day, the goal is to produce an image that would look great printed large and hung on a wall. It's my hope that people would be drawn to it and soak in the image as a whole as well as its details. I believe—in environmental photography especially—that the best images tempt our minds as places to visit, stay a while, and enjoy again and again for various reasons.
