I make pictures.
All kinds of pictures but mostly nature and travel pictures. I'm passionate about making images but also the creative process that produces them. I've learned some key lessons on my journey as a photographer. Among the most important are that Seeing is a Skill and creativity is a muscle. The Photographer's Eye is something anyone can learn.
I also enjoy helping others grow as photographers. My favorite way of doing this is to take small groups of people to amazing places and work on both the craft and creative aspects of image making together. I call it a Whole Brain approach to photography.
You don't have to go to amazing places to learn to See, but it's more fun that way ;-).
