Hi, thanks for visiting. I focus on combining my two favorite genres of photography - travel and urban. By merging these two mediums I hope to show how as people we relate to and affect our environment. I am always on the lookout for interesting things to capture whether it be a misty landscape, a market stall, a weathered facade or a candid street scene. Traveling extensively has provided me with the means to fulfill my passion. The thousands of pictures that I capture on these trips provides me with the raw material to be transformed into fine art images.
To fulfill my passion, I continue to experiment with new processes and concepts. I look for shots that I can manipulate using a variety of filters and textures. I am constantly experimenting with blending colors, tones and textures to enhance or create a certain atmosphere to my images. My ultimate goal is to evoke emotion by creating a visually appealing, unique and imaginative fine art image. Hope you enjoy my images.
