I believe in genuine, honest, non-synthetic photographs, free of too much corruption. In other words I use manipulation very sparingly. I use Photo shop to adjust very little, and never use filters and effects (unless it is for fun, and obvious to the viewer). I feel 95% of the finished image should be born when the shutter snaps. This is a matter ruled by character and integrity to which I am held to in all my art forms. I believe the farther away you get from the original image, the farther you stray from the truth. My photos may not be as "Finished" as others work, but they are honest. In my art I am not influenced, or driven by commercial concerns. So there is no pressure to be anything but who I am, a fortunate consequence Although this is the hardest path one can travel in this industry, and I do it consciously... even deliberately and with great enthusiasm. "Art cannot exist without suffering... usually the more the suffering the better the art". The harder the path the truer the direction, as a result the universe will force you to be honest. Yes... I know "art is suffering" is so cliche'... but cliche's have a foundation in truth. They are a form of passed down conventional wisdom in the human species. It is why they survive today, and still have intrinsic value.
My other artistic pursuits are as follows. I am also a Singer, Songwriter, Guitarist, Poet, Author, T.V. Producer, Inventor, and philosopher.
I hope you enjoy my interpretations of reality, and that my legacy leaves something beautiful in it's wake.
