I've always loved experimenting with different techniques and thinking of ideas that go beyond a straightforward shooting style. Using coloured transparencies, shooting through objects, creative lighting, old lenses, anything with a "defect" that helps to develop the images character. These are the things that drew me to photography.
I have a deep respect for my subject matter and never shoot for the sake of exhibition. Rather, my aim is to show the value inherent in my subject whether it be part of a portrait, landscape or symbol.
