have a group of portfolios of fine art and nature photography to browse
through, along with a
bit of information about how I
do my photography, and then there is also my Paleo Field Notes.
Iíll be including portfolios from
a number of my different exhibits and series. New photographic portfolios
and rotation of the works in the portfolios will take place occasionally.
Updates have been neglected recently as I was finishing my dissertation for my Ph. D.; however, now that it is finished my updates should be more regular.
My photographic portfolios provide
a variety of subjects, styles, and media which help illustrate how I view
my world. I strive to capture in my images the beauty of my world that
evoke the emotions within me.
In my opinion, art does not have
to depict something negative, ugly, shocking, or the banality of someoneís
life to give it meaning. An image that evokes emotion in a person can make
a very strong statement about the world they live in, even if that emotion
is created because of beauty. When I see a subject that stirs emotions
in me, I struggle to create an image that will capture the emotions that
the subject has caused.
To me life is a great adventure:
· excavating Triassic
· prospecting for gold,
· hiking the wilderness,
· watching the full moon illuminate
the curves a woman.
I search for the rush of the
emotions created by what I see. Capturing the natural beauty of my world
is what I strive to do; whether I am capturing a close-up of a sunset reflecting
in the eye of a rattlesnake, the intense power of a storm, or the inspiring
visions of a woman.
