About My Business I am a professional photographer who specializes in people and their horses and a fine art documentary approach to the western life style: ranches, cowboys, cowgirls, rodeos, etc.
Here is my Artist's Statement:
It's not about the camera or the technology; It's about the fragile whispers of life: Those images that are here and then gone in an instant; The eye that sees them; The visions of the artist; The stories to be told; This is Photography.

The images I create are dynamic and thought provoking. Strong colors and tones reflect the tough and gritty lives of the horses, cowgirls, cowgirls and the West where they live and work. My photographs are made from the perspective of the subjects.

Viewers are an integral part of the artistic process, hopefully connecting with the subjects emotions, and the subjects in turn appear to be responding to the viewers’ reactions.
