“Life is what happens to you while you’re busy making other plans.”
John Lennon, “Beautiful Boy”
English singer-songwriter (1940 – 1980)
“every picture tells a story”
I’m a photographer because it’s what I love doing. It’s my avocation as much or more so than my vocation. This is my art. You can browse through all of my work in the Photo Galleries link. While I do love all sorts of photography at heart I’m a documentarian, I love a photograph that tells a story. Rod Stewart was right, every picture tells a story, at the same time, some stories are better than others. What I really want to do is photograph life and not be busy making other plans.
My favorite photographs are usually those where the subject isn’t paying attention to me. That’s why I love street photography and taking pictures of athletes. People that are busy doing what they are doing aren’t paying attention to me and my camera.
Of course, no matter what I say about my photography somewhere in my photographs you will find at least one that contradicts it all.
