My photography has evolved throughout the years, from capturing family events in my early years to creating images that I have an intense and intuitive connection with. My hope is that the viewer will have a sense of that connection, to truly feel that real moment in time captured as the shutter clicked. Like many photographers, I have discovered the joy of digital and having the computer as my darkroom. My images tend to reflect my long association with classic and traditional compositions, but I have adopted a ‘less is more’ vision, which I try to incorporate into most everything I shoot. I look for the essence of the subject, or that ephemeral element that is not always obvious. I try to create images in which the only missing element may be the viewer, so that they find themselves aligning their imaginations with mine in that moment.
