My passion for photography grew out of my love for the outdoors and as an alternate outlet for my creative side. For a number of years, I was a professional musician playing in local groups throughout the region. But with a growing family, I was less and less able to keep up with the late hours, travel and many practices sessions it takes to play music.

I searched for another way of expressing myself. I was always fascinated by the way light played off mountains, trees, water and other natural objects so I had developed a photographer’s eye long before I picked up a camera. As I got deeper into the study of photography, I became more interested in capturing nature on an intimate scale rather than always striving for the grand landscape.

The photographs of artists such as Freeman Patterson and Brett Weston inspired me to look closer at what was in front of me for patterns and abstractions in the natural world (some of my photographs are made laying on my stomach in my yard). My first love will always be music so it was natural to start looking for patterns as a way to organize what seems to be chaotic; music being the organization of sound waves and photography the organization of light waves, into what is pleasing or thought provoking to the ear or eye.

I just enjoy the craft of photography and how it makes you more aware of your surroundings. I hope you enjoy my work.

The book on the podium is for your comment, questions, or email address (if you would like information about future exhibits of my work and others.) If you are interested in seeing additional pieces, you can visit my web page at: www.Pbase.com/splapoint
