It don’t come easy ………... Every time I go out to find pictures I expect to fail..But inevitably, often enough, I stumble upon something that I didn’t expect or know would be there. A person, or a thing. I do not construct or pre-visualize my images. I find them. I hunt.

To me, photography is an art of observation. It’s about seeing something interesting in an ordinary place, things that most people would just pass by. I’ve also discovered that it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them.

So that is my intention - to show people what I see and and most importantly, how I see it.
