I'm a Visual person. I have, through all of my professional life, taken photos of the many events, situations and places that I've had the good fortune to experience. I’ve been called a documental photographer, but I prefer to call my self an opportunistic photographer.
I don't stage or plan out my photos. I notice in the moment something that is beautiful to me, and I try in that instant to photograph it. I'm more successful sometimes than others, and I morn the great photos I've missed simply because I couldn't get to my camera fast enough. But still,many of the moments that have moved me I did capture.
It is always a pleasant surprise to me that others appreciate my photos, and with the encouragement of a few special people, I have undertaken to create this website and make my work more available.
