I’ve always found the most interesting images are those that encourage the viewer to explore the story that the artist is trying to tell and this is what I try to bring to the images I create, whether they’re straight photographs or some form of digital art.  To me, the title given to an image should help the viewer understand what inspired the photographer to create the image and the story he’s trying to tell.  I’ve photographed many types of subjects, but I always try to create an image that can tell a story or invoke a feeling in the viewer.

I don’t consider myself a photographer who creates art, rather an artist that uses the digital world as his medium.
