Twenty years ago, I took a Cord Camera photography class, and this ignited my passion for travel photography. I began taking road trips throughout the United States and Canada. What excited me most about my earliest photography adventures was having the opportunity to share powerful images and sharp color.
In 2006, I traveled from the Netherlands to Italy, and I discovered architecture and landscapes that took my breath away. For my viewers, I wanted to capture the wonder I felt when I came upon these spectacular scenes. I continue to travel. My recent collections are of trip to Nepal, Southwest United States, and quick trip to Louisville Kentucky.
A photograph enables the dimension of Time to be added to art. An accumulation of time that the human brain is incapable of capturing. Or, a minuscule fraction of time that the brain is also incapable of capturing and retaining.
I retired from a 38 year successful career of engineering – creatively solving problems to efficiently and safely deliver value and quality. I am discovering and developing my art to deliver value and quality – to the visual senses. With no formal training in the Arts, I embrace the challenge to look, see, capture, and articulate. I want my viewers to see, if just for an instant, through my eyes – the same images that they may Look, but may not have the time or vision to See.
“Somewhere, something incredible is waiting to be seen.” is my motivation.
