There’s an intimacy in the unspoken communication of the eye and the heart…in that moment when suddenly the realization is upon you that you’re surrounded by something beautiful. We find ourselves longing to find some meaningful expression of that intimate communication; some way to share that beauty and give form to the emotion of the experience…to share our “burning bush experience.” Suddenly we realize our humanity, and that which is all together separate from ourselves reveals something about who we are…and we are stirred.
For me, photography is the medium that best allows me to capture and celebrate God’s creation, while still pointing to the genius of Creator God, the only original thinker. As I seek to understand and interpret my surroundings, I am discovering that all of life is colored by the grace of the One who gives, sustains, and redeems life. I believe that art only reflects true beauty when our focus shifts from the transient horizontal, to the vertical eternal. My art is an expression of joy in how God makes all things new. I have hope that my perspective will somehow inspire new vision in the viewer…and that there is a stirring of heart that points to the Creator.
My journey to the camera was an accidental one at best. I started realizing that I wanted to remember certain places or people just as they were, and soon I began seeing how they could be with just the right light and a little imagination. So, I bought my first 35mm SLR camera in high school, and pursued photography throughout my college years. Now, as a full-time husband and hopeful "one-day-to-be" father, my passion for the art continues to drive me to hone and develop my skills in photography.
We're in an exciting new place in our lives, my wife and I, which has afforded me the luxury of committing more time to the business side of my passion. So, beginning this year, I'm officially available for weddings, events, and other photo services, information about which can be found on my "Services" link. Thanks for stopping by, and feel free to sign my guestbook, or send me an email.
