Artist Statement

His love of travel and the passion to create a visual testimony too his adventures led him to a lifetime of photography. As his vision matured he discovered the same satisfaction from working in his studio. In his words “The rules are always the same; no matter what I’m shooting, I’m driven by design. It comes down to a pleasing combination of composition and content. It’s either right or wrong, there’s no middle ground. I know when I have to keep pushing, and when I’ve got it. My goal is to create images that tell unmistakeable and memorable stories, and to make the journey a delight. Regardless of a job’s size, location or budget, I will always bring the same enthusiasm, and I hope it will be contagious.”
