I feel like being a photographic artist is a bit like being a magician. When I look around me, I don’t see what “is”. I see what “can be” using a little bit of creative capture with my camera ~ and I “trick” my viewer into seeing reality through the eye of my lens. I don’t just stop with photographic capture. I digitally “paint” or manipulate the things that I capture into something else entirely. Sometimes it looks similar to what the eye sees. Sometimes it becomes something else entirely. My art begins with reality. It ends with imagination.
