“Environmental landscapes are one of my passions in photography. The focus on environmental landscapes tells a story of our human existence and the impact we have on our natural environment. Some of what I shoot is to highlight for others, the incredible natural beauty that surrounds us. Additionally, urban landscapes can point out how well we are maintaining or trashing our own contributions to the natural world. Shooting landscapes for me is always taking into consideration just how large of an image I can produce. I’m not solely creating “big” images for the sake of big, but more for the ability to convey the grandeur of the landscapes beauty to the viewer of the image.”
