Welcome!


Recently, when asked about my photography and what kind of subjects I liked to photograph, my response readily included people, places and things as general subjects, but also many of the little details which create a subject. Photographs are affected by their surroundings and interpretation at a particular moment in time. However, when the shutter clicks, that moment and all of the elements which created it are frozen and preserved for others to enjoy. This photographic documentation of time can be shared with others at almost any time or place. Through editing, the subject can evolve by applying other interpretations which were not present or possible when an image was captured. This can bring new life to the past or even create a new reality to the subject. The possibilities for interpretation and creativity are endless, allowing moments of time to live on forever.
