Latest Updates (March 2013)

I added two new galleries, Rodeo Beach (available in the seascapes album) and Self & (available in the selfscapes album). I also added a handful of new images to the Infrared Landscapes gallery and two new images to the China Camp State Park gallery.

Featureshoot.com recently interviewed me about my infrared photography.

Since I redesigned the home page, I needed a new home for the testimonials so generously written for me. You can find them here.

Thanks for stopping by!

Cheers,

New Gallery: zen garden study

New Gallery in  zenscapes: zen garden study

This series is a meditation on Zen Calligraphy. At the risk of oversimplifying things, to write Zen calligraphy masterfully, you must empty your mind and, more or less, let the characters flow. Thought, emotions and expectations should not matter. My approach to these particular images is to capture the lines, curves, and textures of the rocks and find the character that resides in them by freely dodging (lightening) and burning (darkening) the details and negative space of the image, reducing the landscape to its most minimal expression– all the while trying my best to just “simply do” and not think or expect or analyze what I am doing.
