"Photography is my passion. It is that thing. You know, that thing you do that takes you away from every other thing. When I am out shooting, whether it be a sunrise, a newborn baby, or a family gathering, I lose all sense of past and future. I am there in the moment. Completely present.
When you are a photographer, you are also a weather person.
You watch the weather conditions as if they were an old friend coming to visit. You have to prepare and get ready. You make sure your equipment is ready. You get up at 3:30-4:00 in the morning. You travel, sometimes 3-4 hours to that special destination. All the while, getting excited about what you will see. And then it happens, the sun comes up, shining the light on the earth and waking up the day. There it is, the Light. The Light that carries with it new opportunities to create. Without the Light there would be no creation. And creating is what fills my spirit. Creating images is my gift to share and I am grateful beyond words."
