Welcome. I'm really glad you are here. Thank you for stopping by.
Photography is a way for me to slow down, appreciate, and notice what nature offers and, on occasion, other shapes, scenes and lighting that catch my eye. In that moment of discovery the creative process begins with using the cameras, lenses, and filters in my photographer's toolkit. My aim is to bring about and express what moves me in that time and space. The resulting photo embodies that moment.
Having grown up in rural northern British Columbia nature was my playground, I've always resonated with nature. Recently, I learned what science says about the positive relationship between nature and human well being in a book entitled "The Brain on Nature" by Eva Selhub and Alan Logan. While being in nature reaps the most benefits, what struck me the most was the empirical evidence that images of nature in the home or workplace has a also has a beneficial impact on the human brain and personal well being. Maybe you've read the book, too? Or, might like to?
More recently, health issues limited my ability to get out and about in nature with my camera as much as I usually like to. But the silver lining is that it led me down a path of exploring digital artistry, which is now a part of my my artistic repertoire, in addition to photography.
Once again, I appreciate you being here and hope you enjoy what you see and get a positive 'brain boost', too.
