“Looking through a camera lens, I open my mind’s eye and try to experience what I see. What will move me? Will it be the light, shadows, shape, movement, or the soul reflected in an eye? ”

What thrills me the most is when people are moved by something I create. It is not necessary that they see what I saw but that they feel something. The image may reflect something in their life. You can technically take a perfect photo. But for me, it needs to be more about a connection that people have with it.
The process of creating for me is never the same because it is raw, unfiltered and not planned. My intent may be to go whale watching but when I am there, I let the moment take me and try to capture it through photography. After the experience, when I go through my prints, I only select ones that move me and try not to over analyze it.
