For me, photography is a way to capture and bring attention to the details of everyday life and the physical space around us that might otherwise be overlooked or taken for granted. Photography allows me to capture the beauty of light on a landscape or how the light changes with the time of day or the season. It allows me to filter out all the distractions and forces me to focus on details that I might otherwise have never noticed. Simple details intrigue me, such as the way light illuminates an object, or the distance between trees in a meadow. When I am emotionally moved by the beauty of these details, I am compelled to capture the moment through my photography. My hope is that when others look at my photographs, they will experience some of the same emotions or at least be moved to have a greater appreciation for all of the rich visual experiences around them everyday.
