My 25 years of traveling on the back roads of the world has led to countless adventures, experiences, and stories from the array of characters I have met along the way. As a documentary photographer, I take pictures of people, landscapes, nature abstracts, architecture, and wildlife. I like exploring remote places where my mind can run free and fast with the constant visual stimulation I experience from dawn to dusk–always seeking something new and different. But it is the colorful individuals I encounter and photograph of which I have the fondest memories.
My goal has always been to make an image that captures the individual spirit of the person. In order to achieve this, I have learned over the years that it helps to spend some time getting to know my subjects. The cooperation and rapport that is established between photographer and subject is critical.
