"I see photography as Scared Visual Medicine. Every collected image has the power to effect the spirit, body and mind of the one looking at it.
I call this form of image collecting Intuitive Photography.
When I step out to collect the imagery around me I see it as Sacred Practice.
Whether it be Mother Earth in all her splendor or the gift of an animal encounter or a commissioned session with a Family or a Sacred Individual,
I see these all as Divine Appointments.
Sometimes the imagery brings laughter, sometimes reflection, sometimes healing, sometimes sadness and sometimes even anger. Whatever it may be, something is effected deep within,
something pulls the observer to the image and touches something inside, and this is why
I do what I do; this is what excites me about this work.
I collect what I am inspired to collect and then I pass it on to whomever is in need of the "medicine" found in the image....My collecting style is dirty, in the sense that I am more interested in the authenticity of the shot rather than the perfection."
