15 years, I lived life without a real camera. It's only in the last few
years that I felt I had something to share, and a creative vision worth
pursuing. For most of my adult life, I lived, worked, pursued a career,
started a family, exulted in personal triumphs, and endured defeats. When
I was young, the world was black or white. It's only thru life's
experiences have I come to realize that the world is filled with infinite
shades of grey. Within the shades of grey lie beauty and art, waiting to
When I see the light fall across the female form, I want others to see
that the beauty is in the shape; the play of light, and the way the model
expresses herself. When I see a look, an expression - eyes that melt my
soul, it needs to be shared.
My endeavors are nothing more or less then collaborations with the model.
The model is a partner in the creative process. I have the greatest
respect for the models I have been fortunate enough to work with. Fully
clothed, barely covered, or completely nude, they possess self-confidence,
a belief in self and a desire that I can only begin to imagine from my
side of the camera. Respect, admiration and gratitude summarize what their
participation means to me. Sometimes, a split second before I fire the
shutter, I am fortunate enough to see the beauty of the moment that once
past is no more. It's for this moment I keep looking thru the camera,
hoping to capture just a glimpse of that which moves me.
