I have been involved in photography from an early age. I clearly remember the red light of the dark room, the distinct smell of the developer and fixer while developing film and making prints together with my father.
Throughout the years I have always been taking pictures or should I say ... snap shots. Only since 2004 have I become more passionate about the art of photography and have been learning about the elements that need to come together to capture the moment, the emotion, to produce a meaningful image to remember.
Whether the subject in the viewfinder is nature, man made, animal or human, I enjoy being out in the field and discovering new places. Some of the images in the galleries are nature related. Lately I have been exploring cities and towns near and far and discovering cultures other than my own. I enjoy being close to water and that is reflected in some of the places I visit and photograph. I look more for behavior and interaction rather than portraits. In wildlife and equally in people. Exploring, discovering, learning and understanding the world we live in. Everything and everyone is connected in some way. We all share the same increasingly changing, fragile and turbulent planet. Capturing a moment in time, a moment that the eye may miss or the mind may need more time to develop, understand, appreciate and value. There to be experienced, shared and relived in years to come.
Note: I am not a biologist. I have tried to correctly label all species but a few here and there may not be so. If you spot an error please let me know so I can make the correction. Thank you!
