Ranked in the top 5 most influential guitar players of all time, B.B. King graced the stage of Denver Botanic Gardens last Monday for yet another performance. The elegant garden venue seemed like the perfect fit for the legendary blues-man in the twilight of his career to be playing on what was a perfect summer evening. In support of King, The Delta Sonics held the opening slot of the day. Also adding to the events activities was the ongoing Chihuly Exhibition throughout the gardens, giving concert-goers a sensory bonanza of entertainment, art, and beautiful vegetation.
Capturing life in various forms is what I do. I consider myself an archivist by nature. It is not a career choice that I consciously made, but it is something that has called me. I strive to freeze a moment in time with every frame, a moment that can retell its story with each viewing, forever. I also have a deep passion for music and have been photographing and recording live music for years. Capturing the energy and magic of a live performance in a photograph is one of my passions. In addition, I enjoy photographing in a wide variety of settings, from wildlife scenes to family portraits and everything in between. I am a lover of the earthscapes that we see all around us every day, both natural and manmade, and aim to make unique images that do justice to their beauty. Where others see darkness, I see streaks of light through long exposures.
I shoot a very wide variety of subject matter including individual/family portraits, event coverage, landscapes, live concert/performance, HDR, product and commercial photography, architectural, weddings, food, and editorial photo journalism. With artistic expression, I aspire to create visual art that speaks volumes.
