I often get asked, "What would you say your photos are about?"
My philosophy is to take nothing for granted. All basic elements of light, texture, color, shape and balance create a mood. A palate in the moment if I'm astute enough to be present! The focus is on these elements, normally only a few at a time, to convey as strongly as possible that simplicity is powerful, elegant and full of emotion. The colors have not been optimized, the exposures are all original, and only a handful have been cropped. Nearly all of them have been posted as they were taken in the moment. You see them as I first did; the only effect is what you take from it.
I do plan to experiment in the future with in camera editing, black and white photography, HDR, and all manner of visual optimization. For now, I am happy with the challenge of producing non-fiction images.
My thanks to my beautiful wife, without whose patience and brilliance, I would be lost. Many of these photos are inspired by her and a few were hers alone.
