New Photographs are always coming into the Gallery.
I generally consider my images to be more found than created. My process involves going out and exploring under certain favorable light conditions, frequently involving snow, fog, rain or overcast. I am usually after a soft flat, and shadowless light. Some folks say some of the images look as if they were painted. I think this is mostly because of the quality of light, which differs from the more high contrast quality often asssociated with photography. I am generally drawn toward simple compositions and pastoral subjects that exude quiet, stillness, and calm.
