The whole point is really just to get out there, you go around first by boat, or foot – think about it for a while and then come back when you get the chance. Maybe you do, and you forget later what was so interesting about the whole thing to begin with – wondering why you went so far out of your way. Eventually, you start to question your own attempts to rationalize, give meaning to through some expected purpose.
The whole thing gives you a chance to learn a more simple reason than that of any ideas you had. It’s just a lot of fun to wander, when you can.
I am a software architect by trade, Chief Architect and Co-Founder of a network security company located in Houston, TX. My studio and home are a fairly empty warehouse located in downtown Houston. Photography for me is a part-time hobby and full-time obsession. I’m not obsessed with lighting tricks, lenses, particular films, post-processing techniques, or any of that, but instead with photography as an emotive form.
That each image should capture an emotion, a feel for the ramifications of being a person in nature, or nature being its self with the presence of people, is the ultimate goal. For this reason, I shoot primarily (for/in) black and white. The focus is on tone and concrete composition.
It’s been said that I have too many hobbies, and that may be true – but for the most part, they revolve around a consistent theme of being out-of-doors. I spend at least a day each week, weather permitting, on the coastal flats, bays, and marshes by kayak — hunting for fish or for photos.
