Inspired by the universe around me, I enjoy taking photographs that will invigorate others... Demanding them to be seduced by the pulchritudinous world in which we all live. Many people go about their lives without taking a moment to look at their surroundings, to really look at something, in order to see what they see. Whether it is the petals of a flower, a reflection of an object, the sunrise, the sunset, or just sitting back watching people as they go about their business. I truly feel like Alfred Eisenstaedt when he said, "People will never understand the patience a photographer requires to make a great photograph, all they see is the end result. I can stand in front of a leaf with a dew drop, or a rain drop, and stay there for ages just waiting for the right moment. Sure, people think I am crazy, but who cares? I see more than they do!!"
When it comes to photography, I am driven to get the best shot that I can. The light and conditions have to be just right. I am eager to learn new techniques and apply them to my form and manner. I have heard that once the amateur's naive approach and humble willingness to learn fades away, the creative spirit of good photography dies with it. That every professional should remain always in his heart an amateur.
Other than that, I am just a really easy going guy looking for the next great adventure... always with my camera in hand, of course. I have taken all the images on my page while traveling around place to place. Feel free to share with others, but please, no commercial use.
