This photography page is a sampler of different types of photos I have taken over the years. I shoot anywhere between 7-10K digital photographs per year, and I never seem to have enough time to edit them cause I am a busy guy. So for every picture you see here I probably have a good 100 more that are just waiting to be shared with the world. Used to have a fancy photography slide show player but it was not social enough (no comments) or shareable enough for me so I have delved into Flickr Pro and am in the process of migrating the majority of my stuff to my Flickr Pro Account! However, from time to time I will post exclusive content to this website.
“it’s about catching the beauty of a moment…so that you can give it back to the world” ~ Todd Pitt
I shoot anything encountered in life that I see as beautiful. Normally I carry either a 14.0 mega pixel Cannon PowerShot SX210 IS or a 12.1 MP Cannon PowerShot A1100 IS just about everywhere with me. Though I really do need to acquire a pro-level D-SLR, there is something really simple, minimalist about being able to point & shoot to capture high-resolution photos @ 12-14 mega-pixels without having to carry a bag with lenses or ruck any other gear with me. My style is varied & kind of unusual in some regards, what I live for is to capture the everyday things & oddities, putting them in an unique context or lens so that you know them sub-consciously but not consciously. Think of it as a visual paramnesia or deja vu. My favorite thing relation to my photographic works is to hear people say is “What is that?” because an object is so familiar to them, yet because of the way the photo is framed or contextualized it becomes new, a different perspective on the very world they think they already know and live in. A shadow world within a world, the world beneath. The world you should see right in front of you but don’t. The world that you saw but didn’t see…that’s me.
Clouds, shadows, sky, light, silhouettes, nature, reflections, surrealism, abstractions, felines, sunrises, sunsets, concerts (in the pit perspective), and randomness.
