' There are three distinct ways I work with a camera..... the first revolves around capturing in terms of light, perspective and detail, what I see, a 'reality' image that is true to my 'natural vision' and captivating to my eye and heart. The second revolves around photo - montage - graphic work which flows into the surreal and the world of software manipulation and imagination. The third is figurative work which revolves around spontaneously capturing a living moment, poise, dance or action that conveys a sense of spirit and place with grace, expression and beauty through the human form.
