GALLERY | Wild and Beautiful Nature

Artist Statement

My daily work is a mix between creating visual effects and photographing nature. The two things are seemingly at odds and yet I find them to be a wonderful balance. Visual effects is about bringing someone’s imagination to life, quite often creating things that are straight out of a dream. By definition, we are trying to create that which does not exist. For me, photographing nature is about seeing what stupendous bounty nature has to offer and finding a way to capture it without transforming it­—no painting things out, no ‘fixing’ things. My inspiration is in the myriad of forms I see in nature, the unending morphologies, solutions to encountered problems over billions of years. She is the ultimate engineer and I am ceaselessly amazed at her brilliance. I only hope I do her justice.
