Artist Statement

During the day, I'm a Technical Evangelist for Microsoft Corporation. But in my spare time, I love experimenting with macro photography. If you use Windows Vista, you can find my first-ever digital macro photo as one of the default wallpaper images (it's the banana leaf close-up). It's amazing to think that--as of the time of this writing--that photo is installed on over 180 million computers around the world!

Most of my macro photos are of flowers, leaves, and various plant parts, though I do break out of that pattern on occasion. I like playing with color, contrast, composition, form, line, light, texture, and balance. I strive to create very high quality images, and believe me, for each good image, I have a hard drive full of bad ones. :-)

I hope that you enjoy my photography, and if you do choose to purchase one of my images, I sincerely thank you in advance!
