Since I was a young child, I have been a “watcher”: part of me engaging in the social graces of being human as another part of me would sit like a fly on the wall watching. At times I would note the politics in the room – which sibling was getting attention and why. At other times I would notice the light painting the room with graphic designs. As a result, I developed a passion for photojournalism as well as shape and form.
I have not been trained in art except for a bizarre high school art classe and a few photography workshops in the 80's. In fact, it is more likely people tell me what I am doing artistically then me applying principles as I shoot. Truly, it is a look-and-feel experience. I move and wiggle around as I look through the frame capturing images when they seem to feel "right". In most cases I am a "finder" photographer versus ad "crafter". I see visual opportunities then play with them as I shoot and in post-processing. With many of my images, I paint.
Enjoy the blog - my goal is to share some of my learnings and point of view.
