It is super important to me, to have the actual experience of making a picture be FUN for me and whomever is in the photograph. For me this means keeping the ideas "simple" so that they guide the experience without getting in the way.

My pictures are quite "personal" in that they are inspired by actual experiences, observations or emotions I have had, but they are not sentimental recreations of them.

This exhibition is composed of several different series of underwater images i have made over the past 18 months. Primarily they have been shot in Bermuda, but a few were made in the Bahamas and Mexico. I hope you enjoy them!
