Statement

Introduction:

For me photography is a language, in fact it is a conversation between the subject, myself and the person who may one day see my photographs. It is up to me to decide how I operate the optical equipment called a ‘camera’ and to best communicate the subject's message.

Before I click the shutter, the question always nags at me. “Why are you taking this photograph?”

The answer is simple “because there is something there" usually as I approach a scene and in just a few steps it will be gone again. But there is a moment where everything falls into play. The construct of the image is not always obvious until I see the negative later. The process of composing the image through my camera lens is more of subtraction than addition, pulling purer elements together and eliminating excess, all done in a few seconds.

Often I will return to the same location another day and try to experience that interplay once more and then hopefully my tenacity pays off.

My photographic day often begins before sunrise.  I have already thought through the location the day before, decided how best to approach it.  I have taken a few mental notes of the weather. Was there a rain shower the night before? is a cold front moving in? and what cloud cover will there be – if any?  I believe you have an advantage if you have somewhat of an understanding of the weather conditions before setting out as these conditions can greatly effect light.   Other occasions it may perhaps be a casual evening walk or a walk to my “real job”.  I don't like to miss too much.

There is always something to photograph. Every few steps I find inspiration.

When visiting different locations, I am very conscious of the quickly changing scenery and have found this has continued speeding up all my adult life.  It is not just a sensation, my photographs often illustrate how temporary our surroundings can be. .

The digital age of photography has a firm foothold today, and although I have explored this medium I have not fully embraced it as of yet.

My darkroom experience is mostly self-taught except for some advice along the way.

I normally use an Olympus 35mm single - lens reflex camera and although I have experimented with different lenses, a 50mm lens is ideal for my needs - I feel more connected with the subject.  I also use a Holga (medium format) -when I remember to bring it with me and load it with film- as well as a variety of box cameras.

I currently live in Athens, Georgia, U.S.A.

It is home for now.
