Fly fishing for trout is my escape and solice. Trout fishing occurs in some of the most beautiful parts of the world. Trout cannot survive without pure water and a clean environment. My lifelong interests in the fragile nature of our environment has had a direct influence on my view of our world.
I find inspiration in music, in particular I find Bach motivating. While there is no direct connection with music in my photographs, lyricism and tonality are important elements in my work.
