My main photographic goal is and has always been simple; push and explore the limits of the medium by any means possible.  

I started taking photographs in 1988.  I continue to this day.  

Life is too short for banal, trite and hackneyed images.  

I would much rather see a poorly crafted photo that showcases style than a perfect image that shows no creativity.
