- "I have certainly matured as a photographer. This means I have slowed down, and become much more aware of how to visualize what I see before even picking up the camera from my bag. Call it 'slow photography', if you will. To me, it's a creative and inspiring process. Being outdoors, enjoying nature and making photographs is all about self-expression. I create fine art that speaks to me, first and foremost. If I get to share my work with others, it doubles the joy. It's as simple as that."
