What my eyes seek in these encounters is not just the beauty traditionally revered by wildlife photographers. The perfection I seek in my photographic composition is a means to show the strength and dignity of animals in nature.
Vision - Lowepro 2004/2005
I think a photograph, of whatever it might be a— landscape, a person— requires personal involvement. That means knowing your subject, not just snapping at what's in front of you.
I feel that you can’t really understand the present, or project into the future, without an understanding of the past.
