“Sometimes I do get to places just when God’s ready to have somebody click the shutter.”

To photograph truthfully and effectively is to see beneath the surfaces and record the qualities of nature and humanity which live or are latent in all things.

There are always two people in every picture: the photographer and the viewer.

Sometimes I do get to places just when God's ready to have somebody click the shutter.

I tried to keep both arts alive, but the camera won. I found that while the camera does not express the soul, perhaps a photograph can!

“Dodging and burning are steps to take care of mistakes God made in establishing tonal relationships.”

Photography is more than a medium for factual communication of ideas. It is a creative art.

Landscape photography is the supreme test of the photographer and often the supreme disappointment.

I can look at a fine art photograph and sometimes I can hear music.

In wisdom gathered over time I have found that every experience is a form of exploration.

“The single most important component of a camera is the twelve inches behind it!”
