Santa Fe, NM
I am continually inspired by the world around me: people, places, nature, buildings. I will point my camera at almost anything if I think I can capture it in an interesting and novel way.
My father gave me my first camera when I was 15 — a 35mm Pentax Spotmatic — while we were living in Heidelberg, Germany. Once I developed my first roll of film, I was hooked. From there, I began photographing anything and everything. For the next 30 years, I have danced between the creative worlds of photography and music. Those two worlds became my breath: as a successful singer & songwriter, I breathed out, and as a photographer, I breathed in.
Over the years, I found my photography interest focused mainly on the varied landscape of nature. My pursuit of landscape photography took me throughout the United States, including New Mexico, Arizona, Colorado & California. As it is with most photographers, I maintain a long list of places I still want to photograph.
More recently, I've been interested in abstract & still life photography, and bringing concepts to life. I find it very rewarding when the objects I include in a photograph are able to tell a story that otherwise would not be told.
I continue to look for new subjects to photograph, no matter who or what it is. And I have to believe that the most interesting scene is just around the next corner.
