I'm fortunate to live in the Texas Hill Country which is a never ending source of inspiration and opportunity. The natural beauty of this area is something I've been exploring and photographing for over ten years. The best discoveries are those that are found when you put away the map, pick a direction, and just drive.
I was first inspired to take up the photographic arts in the late 1990's when I saw what photographers like Stu Jenks were doing with night photography. From fire spirals to light painting, I was hooked. It didn't take long to become obsessed with other photographic endeavors and I soon fell in love with nature and landscapes.
Another subject I developed a passion for along the way was the old barns and houses that are so prevalent in this area. While much of my work captures the overt glory of Nature at her finest, the subtle yet rich beauty of forgotten places is like a constant siren call to which I'm drawn. From abandoned farm houses to the rust-soaked gears of old machinery, the exquisite melancholy these types of images invoke binds us to an unknown past and the secrets it holds. Like the memories they contain, these forgotten places are slowly crumbling into dust and will one day be gone forever.
