American Farm Heritage
All across America, many historic farm structures are deteriorating rapidly. Preserving these gems of America’s history is sometimes cost prohibitive and isn’t always possible. As the farming industry technology progresses, in some cases newer structures are replacing the traditional American farm appearance. My vision for this body of work is to capture these essential barns, buildings and structures as I see them and to create an awareness of these expiring buildings before they disappear completely.
Capturing landscapes can be a great challenge. They inspire me to seek perspectives that best interprets the view for the observers. Consideration to color, light and shadows, that vary throughout the day, is essential to the final image and the mood it intends to communicate.
My first true love, flora has a language of its own. The unlimited textures and colors of the countless flowers and plants allow us endless appreciation of their beauty. Shapes of the floral buds, the configuration of petals, stamens and stigma, all enhance their individual beauty and can transcend our minds eye to our fantasies. They are a crucial extension of most things we engage in daily such as weddings, funerals as well as bringing them into your living room just to enjoy and appreciate. Flowers are one of natures greatest gifts our planet generously offers us.
Black & White
The simplicity of black and white images has been a favorite of many photographers and art collectors since the film camera. Color images tend to have too much visual information and can reduce the perspective of what I am trying to convey in this series. Clean and precise imagery, black and white photography allows the viewer to use their imagination with color, light and even shapes that exist in the image.
Capturing the very essence of my subject's inner self is my objective when photographing portraits. I generate an informal feeling of comfort for them, which in turn creates the best results for a great portrait.
As with all my photography, finding the real life force behind each subject I encounter is my sole objective. In presenting these images, they allow you to, as the spectator, decide what and how much you want see in my creations.
Architecture is no different. The variations in all architecture is broad and lends itself to a wide spectrum of shapes, textures, color and light. With the help of my photography techniques these images come alive in a new and breathtaking version of every day objects.
