My primary goal is to use photography as a tool to further my artistic practice. I collect images of natural textures. Interesting natural objects. Wildlife. Places. Decay. Elements that I want to explore. I almost always have my camera with me. I started this practice as an electric imaging BFA student, building a catalog of images to use in photoshop. My fascination with photoshop waned, but not the practice of collecting imagery. As my skills with the camera have matured, many of the images stand on their own composition.
