If there's one thing I love to do it's hopping in the car and driving to some far and distant place that I've never seen before. Two cross-country road trips, countless weekend adventures, and numerous National Park visits have lead to the images you see here.
While attending SCAD I had the wonderful pleasure of shooting on an 11x14 Deardorff studio camera. The level of detail and shallow focus were used to create a sense of ethereality.
In our daily lives we live behind a vail of secrets. With Intrusion, I've tried to step inside peoples comfort zones and catch them with their guards down, giving the audience a glimpse of the subject's internal dialogue.
With Abstractions I approached the medium of photography from a very basic perspective, capturing light on either a digital sensor or film frame, and tried to eliminate the "photographer" from the process as much as possible. Blindfolded, with camera in hand, I set out around the city capturing images based not on what I saw, but what I heard. On my first outing I had a lens attached to the camera, and on the second I removed the lens to capture raw unfiltered light directly onto the film.

A series of macro images focusing on unique plants and wildlife.
Having fun in Mineral King, CA with very old and completely expired Kodak Technical Pan film.
