Generally, I would consider myself a landscape photographer. While I’m
still primarily interested in nature photography, recently I’ve done
much more work with still life in the studio.
I’ve been particularly drawn to detail. Even in the studio I’ve been looking more and more
closely and becoming enchanted by the shapes, patterns and textures
that emerge in a closer view.
Many of these images were shot at the Kapi‘olani Community College cactus garden.
Each fall, I take a group of students there to wander around the campus and take
photographs. The cactus garden is a favorite stop.
Included in this collection are images I’ve taken of tropical flower
settings that I regularly place in my studio that help remind me of the wonderful gifts
of the natural world.
