“The myriad facets of nature fascinate me and I try not to limit myself to a single genre of imagery making. …But if I had to pick one, and only one category to pursue, it would be landscapes. For me, the landscape, when captured well, portrays the heart and soul of a place. The other categories further describe what the place may have to offer, and they are wonderful things in their own right, but they’re things and not places. I find that my feelings for places are different than the ones I have for things.”
