I am a Photographer with a great passion for nature and wildlife. My appreciation of the outdoors and the expansive beauty of nature led me to an initial focus on traditional landscape photography. Over time I developed an added interest in wildlife photography, primarily with birds.
Recently I have been taking my photography in a different direction by merging landscapes and wildlife images into abstract creations. By combining overlapping images of different nature scenes, I aim to create environments for wildlife and various nature elements that are real but not real at the same time. My process first involves capturing complementary images of diverse naturally occurring textures, nature elements and wildlife. With these captures I shape a multilayered structure that I blend into a single image utilizing the elements of each layer that I feel best convey the mood I am trying to create. By doing this I hope to develop images that the viewer will see as unique and energizing.
Many of the images submitted for this show were taken in and around Biddeford Pool with additional similarly themed images available through my website. You can also find a series of photographs on the website of the snowy owls who wintered here this year.
