We all see things through our minds eye in life. My photography is a representation of what might be or could be in an image. Creating art in photography can start with an idea or theme and transform into a powerful conceptual photograph. My photographic purpose is to create that vision in my mind’s eye into art. Painters paint, sculptures sculpt, and photographers photograph. My photography is a sample of what I see at a moment in time.
Today everyone with a camera is a photographer and many are very passionate about taking pictures. Some are very good photographers both professional and amateur or some are just starting out.The photos that stand out are from the photographers that study, fail, learn from their mistakes and keep moving ahead in their craft.
