Photography is my license to explore. After years of searching, I’ve finally found something that gives a sense of purpose and meaning to my wanderings. I think the best photographs are often times the simplest, and I strive to pare down my images to the bare essentials leaving only the most important aspects of the composition for the viewer to contemplate. While out shooting, I often think of wartime documentary photographer Robert Capa and his famous quote, “If your photos aren’t good enough, you aren’t close enough.” For me, photography is one big treasure hunt. It’s almost a sport. I’m constantly striving to find that next brilliant image, and that is the thrill I chase each time I’m out with my camera.
