I have always considered myself as an observer more than a photographer.  I rarely set out on a photographic journey with a specific subject matter or goal in mind.  My creative process usually involves observing the environment and looking for compelling shapes, lines, and shades of colors.  

Early influence came from the straight photography school of the famous Group f.64.  My work is largely reflective of the focal sharpness and extreme depth of field that characterized the works of Group f.64.  These pioneering photographers have and continue to serve as sources of inspiration. 

My philosophical approach is best described by Cartier-Bresson who said, “You just have to live, and life will give you pictures.”  I strive to transform the prosaic into a new, captivating visual image.  Seeking new perspectives from everyday scenes is what drives my creativity
