I open my eyes to see without intention. I notice what I notice —whatever that happens to be — and decide if it’s possible it’s the starting point for a compelling photograph. I use all my tools to turn what grabbed my attention into a photograph with power.


I choose subject matter by intuition, without conscious plans, concepts, or goals. I start with reality, and go wherever the image takes me. Meditating on what I see, both before and after I take a photograph keeps me focused on what’s possible rather than on any preconceived goal. My final image is influenced by, but not constrained by reality.
