I have been a photographer since the age of 15. When asked to describe my vision as a photographer, I think it can be best summed up in a comment by one of my clients who said, “I really enjoy your sense of Zen and quietness in all of your photographs”. I strive for that quietness and Zen in all my photographs of nature, landscape, travel, or even sports and events. When I am able to combine that sense of Zen along with an artful sense of balance, composition, and flow, I consider what I have created as worthy of being Photographic ART.
