Earlier in my photography career, I photographed landscapes with infrared film to capture the image in the unseen, sometimes eerie light. I moved into digital photography in 2005, shooting both digital visible and digital infrared images. Once I understood the power of Photoshop, it opened up a new direction to explore, the world of surrealism. Some of my prints are formed from a number of images, these constructed places only exists in my imagination fueled by dreams, personal emotions and life experiences. Whether the final print is composed of one image or several, I am simply presenting my vision of the world around me.
