I’m not what you’d call a traditionalist. A photograph must first stand on its own, both artistically and technically, before I move it to the next step. Using many of the tools available to digital photography, I then set out to develop what’s inside the frame in order to reveal the less obvious, and often more significant. I see each image as a story, and the digital editing process is a significant part of the language of that story.
Most of my work focusses on landscape in both nature and the urban environment. In the Gulf Islands, we are surrounded by the ocean, and I have always been drawn to its beauty and its many moods. I try to capture these elements in my photography. But it’s also the small, everyday things that represent so much, but are so easily overlooked, that find their way into my lens.
