Travelogue :

My travels have been an integral part of the way I see and perceive the world.Of late to Paris,and to Spain.These recordings of moments are available for purchase here on the website and for personal assignment as well. I have often been asked,what are your favorite things to photograph ? It's not a really difficult question,although on certain days I belong in a serene environment alone with nature and other days I belong in a studio.So,the answers have been ...people,nature,and "essence" as I like to call it.What I photograph is,what I see inside of a scene or person.Therefore,the creation of a moment is truly what I am after,in my favorite subjects,portrait,landscape,metaphors and street photography.A decisive moment is not always as simple as it is just sitting there or moving in front of the photographer.My take is that it is constantly being created in tandem with said subject or capture.It always comes quickly and always takes time to swirl into it's essence.

Cartier Bresson once said "I see through the clothes to the skin" This is an interesting analogy of essence because it does not pertain to flesh IMO but to the skin of it or whats really inside.
