I’m fascinated by things that are present but can’t be truly seen. 360° views of landscapes. Objects that are too small or moving too fast to perceive.


Part of the attraction is the science and discipline that is necessary to capture the unseen. Soldering electrical components, moving camera and lens in precise degree arcs, mastering and modifying complex software, and assembling disparate pieces into robust mechanisms are all necessary parts of the process.


But what’s most important to me is the challenge of visualizing a scene that can’t be seen directly. Unlike traditional photography, the viewfinder isn’t a window to the final image. It is merely a display of vital statistics—focus distance, aperture, and shutter speed. The image is composed in thought and realized after the fact. It is a manifestation of experience and imagination.
