Walker, MI, United States

I first became interested in photography at age nine when my dad gave me a Kodak Instamatic 100 camera for my birthday. It was my first camera ever. Little did I know during that moment that this simple little camera with drop-in film cartridges and pop-in flash bulbs would foster a passion that would remain with me my entire life. I seek out clean lines, form, and balance in each image conveying not what I was photographing but why I was photographing. On occasion, I enjoy pushing the envelope to eliminate all visual clues as to what the subject is and invite the viewer not just to see the image but to journey through it. On other occasions, I find it simply awe-inspiring to be at a world class location with dramatic light. Photographs come easily in these instances.
