As a fine art nature photographer, I am not limited to a literal interpretation of what is in front of me. My photography is a combination of reality, vision, and creativity. Flowers and treescapes make up the majority of my work, and when people look at these images, some are surprised that they aren’t looking at a painting. I don’t intentionally try to fool the viewer. I’ve found that the style I’ve developed over the years is a beautiful way to reflect my relationship with nature.
I have the freedom, through lenses, camera and processing techniques, to show my vision of nature. Two qualities that characterize much of my work are simplicity and softness. Simplicity is the result of choosing what I consider to be most interesting about a subject, then creating an image about that quality or qualities. Some of what I look for are delicateness, texture, lines, and symbols.
To impart the lovely, soft quality often seen in my floral images, I use a unique camera lens that lends an intentional soft blur to the image being captured. A sheer layer is sometimes added while I process the image to compliment the painterly quality and color of the photograph.
Through photography, I have found a way to be a part of and enjoy nature. The images I create are my connection to something simpler, to give me that moment to just breathe.
