Nature is so powerful, so strong. Capturing its essence is not easy - your work becomes a dance with light and the weather. It takes you to a place within yourself.
In a portrait, you have room to have a point of view. The image may not be literally what's going on, but it's representative.
When I say I want to photograph someone, what it really means is that I'd like to know them. Anyone I know I photograph.
My hope is that we continue to nurture the places that we love, but that we also look outside our immediate worlds.
Everyone keeps asking you for pictures, and after a while you get tired of that. I always say, They are in the archives.
