The introduction of commercially available film and the Kodak brownie camera was a quantum leap for the advancement of photography, it gave anyone the ability to create images and record the world as they see it. With the development of the digital image, photography took another major step forward, allowing all practitioners to become that much more involved in the process. 

As an artist, I consider my camera, computer, equipment, and the programs I use all part of my “artist’s palette”.  For me, photography has always been more than simply using a process to produce an image that is a faithful representation of whatever is in front of the camera.  I have always strived to go beyond simply documenting what I see but rather record the uniqueness of my subjects – Why did this catch my attention? What makes this unique? – are the questions I constantly ask myself.
