“Beauty can be seen in all things, seeing and composing the beauty is what separates the snapshot from the photograph.” – Matt Hardy.

This quote encapsulates photography for me—I strive to compose images that share the beauty of what I see when I’m out with my camera. Sometimes this involves using the digital darkroom to regain aspects of the image lost in translation. What our eyes see and what the camera captures are not always the same, particularly with regard to dynamic range. There are also times when I feel more creative, and put together composite or altered reality images. These are still grounded in the natural world and all elements incorporated in them are photographic in origin, captured by me.
