Photography has been a significant part of my life for the past 42 years, and yet is a field that continues to hold new beginnings for me as I explore new locations and embark on outdoor adventures. To me, the most essential aspect of any photography is light. I prefer natural light but also use flash creatively. Whether I am capturing the "moment" of the scene or the beauty of life, it provides at the end a rewarding sense of accomplishment for all to see.
