My passion for photography started when I was very young, while standing next to my father in the darkroom. I felt a sense of wonder as I watched his images magically appear in the developing tray. That is what I feel, even today, whenever I take the time to really see what surrounds me.
Over thirty years of perfecting the specialized technique of light painting* has given me the ability to show subjects in a "different light" so that viewers can appreciate them in an unexpected way. This “different light” is meticulously applied in each image and is very sculptural in nature.
*Light painting requires working in a completely dark studio, opening the camera for an extended period of time, and "painting" the light onto the subject. This reveals greater shape, texture and color, and is very much sculpting, but with light".
