I've photographed thousands of trees, but I'm always looking for new ways to photograph them. And the more I photograph them, the more I want my images to be different from anything I've done before, and different from what anyone else is doing. I've photographed them in black and white and with infrared cameras, by moving the camera during exposure to render them as colorful lines and shapes, and in collages made of many photos combined into a single ethereal image. I'm moving away from literal photos of trees to photo-impressionistic images that distill the trees down to just the colors and shapes that give them their essence.
All the images were created in-camera first, and some were made by using multiple exposures (up to fifty photos in one image) to give the final image its impressionistic, layered look– a technique I've been experimenting with for the last year.
