About the Book
We are used to seeing flowers in color. But flowers are equally delightful and some might say even more dramatic when color is stripped away to reveal tones and textures, forms and patterns, the play of light and shadow.
I have long been fascinated by black and white photography. Images become timeless, ageless. Their elegance and character heightened, enhanced.
For me, the beauty, grace and poise of flowers lend themselves to this form of immortalization. Their character is magnified and exalted. Come walk with me. Stroll through the monochrome garden and see the familiar made extraordinary.
I grew up on the creative side of the advertising world working with hundreds of clients globally; telling their unique stories in very unique ways. As a Chief Creative Officer at the world's largest Advertising Agency Network, I needed a distraction. So I bought a camera. And then another. And another. My new hobby and daily "creative exercise regimen" quickly turned into a joy-filled, all consuming passion. I love talking to all sorts of people and seem to have a knack for getting them to open up and share themselves. I like seeking out and sharing things I find interesting. Beautiful things. Powerful things. Poignant things. I am incredibly patient and am often rewarded with moments of magic. One thing led to another and now my clients include Apple, GM, On-Star, Lockheed Martin, Scholastic and Cadillac to name a few. Happiness.
