Artist Statement

Interested in capturing the moment, with its particular light, motion and subject.

My favorite subjects are nature, foreign countries, landscapes, cultures and people as well as sculptures, buildings and machinery. Sometimes I choose images that show the contrast between the old and the new.

I like working with a digital camera, as I can see the results of my efforts immediately and can later crop or enhance the images by increasing or decreasing the contrast and brightness etc. I most often shoot with a Nikon D80 and print my own work in sizes 8 1/2″ x 11″ and smaller using my HP Photosmart Printer.

When I was very young, I began taking pictures of family members, friends, animals and places I had visited. Besides living in Raleigh, North Carolina where I was born, I also spent three years in Roxboro, NC. In 1996 I moved to the unincorporated township of Cleveland Oaks located in Clayton, NC, Johnston County. I have also lived and/or taken photographs in New York City, Spain, Washington, DC, Guam, Los Angeles, Santa Barbara, San Francisco, Seattle, Alaska, Pittsburgh, Sylvan Heights Waterfowl Park in Scotland Neck, Lewis Ginter Botanical Gardens in Richmond, Asheville, Great Britain, China, Trinidad, Costa Rica, Kenya, Istanbul, Israel, India, Thailand, Peru, Australia, New Zealand, Egypt, Jordan and Iceland.

like working with a digital camera, as I can see the results of my efforts immediately.
