Fine Art Photography
My camera enables me to artistically express my love for nature and art. Although I find great joy just being behind the lens, my heart sings when I'm able to capture the beauty and magic of nature.
I find inspiration in many places but I'm mostly inspired by paintings. I enjoy challenging myself to make pictures that look like paintings. Some of the techniques I use are long exposure, intentional camera movement and shooting through objects in the foreground. I'm visually attracted to warm light, curvy lines and water. Elements that define my style are rich color, rich tones, textures and clean backgrounds.
