Iceland transports you back to the primordial Earth, as evidenced by its steaming hills, hot springs, geysers, waterfalls, active volcanoes, glaciers, black sand beaches, and northern lights.

The history of the ancient cave town of Matera, Italy, illustrates the rise, fall, and continuous transformation of all material things, a primary theme of my photography.

Black and White Tuscany Photography

Black and White Tuscany Photography

A young cashier refused to sell us a bottle of wine until she removed all remnants of a sticker. “I can’t give it to you like this. It’s not beautiful.” This perfectly sums up Tuscany to me

Black and White Cuba Photography

The beauty of Cuban architecture continues to radiate through its ruins, as does the spirit of its people despite economic and political restrictions.

Black and White Natural Landscapes

Black and White Natural Landscapes

From grand views of land, sky and waters to intimate depictions of its details, these pristine landscape photographs show little to no evidence of human influence.

Black and White Cultural Landscapes

Black and White Cultural Landscapes

Photographs in which humans have modified or transformed the visible features of the land rather than pristine, unspoiled nature scenes.

Colour Landscape Photography

Colour Landscape Photography

Colour can play a vital role in the emotion and mood of landscape photography, helping the viewer to connect with it in a deeper, more meaningful way.

Black and White Urban and Cityscapes

Black and White Urban and Cityscapes

The richness of history, architecture, industry, culture and people in humorous or poignant scenes make the city fertile ground for photographic exploration.

Colour Urban and Cityscapes

Colour Urban and Cityscapes

My decision to make a photograph in black and white or colour is based on which I feel will make the final image better. I love B&W, but sometimes the colour is too important to disregard.

Black and White Cemeteries and Churchyards

Black and White Cemeteries and Churchyards

Atmospheric overgrown cemeteries are places to contemplate the lives and times of those who have gone before, where you can see vegetative life emerging from the monuments of the deceased.

Panoramaic Photographs

Panoramaic Photographs

Single or multiple images stitched together with a field of view greater than that of the human eye, an aspect ratio of 2:1 or larger, can be considered a wide format or panoramic photograph.

Solargraphy

Solargraphy

Over days, weeks or months, a single image is constructed, revealing a view of space, time and weather patterns we are otherwise unable to see.

Astrophotography

Astrophotography

Nothing evokes contemplation and wonder more than gazing at the beauty and grandeur of the northern lights, the Moon, our Milky Way galaxy or deep-sky nebula.
