In an endless study of the American West, I often find myself close to horses or seeking inspiration at the edge of the Pacific. My images reflect a sense of freedom and harmony with the natural world. I want the viewer to experience the same emotions and intimate connection to my subjects that I felt when I took these images.
The ocean has inspired my work for many years. Growing up in California, I have been given a wonderful opportunity to enjoy and share these precious places. Exploring the coastline with my camera is my muse.
My prints are made using a black and white silver gelatin photographic process. The images are exposed onto light sensitive paper coated with silver salts then processed in liquid chemistry. I chose this method because of the beautiful tonal range and superior archival quality of silver prints.
