I live in New Mexico where I photograph its traditional Southwest architecture. The clear light here and the textures of adobe and stone create each image, so my job is to be in place at the right time to catch the light-and-shadow patterns on these widely varying structures. Elegant or rugged or humble, they appeal to each of us. I think that's because they're built from the earth where they stand.
I moved here to the desert from south Louisiana and still love its rivers and bayous and wetlands, and the night sounds of the frogs and the swamp owls. While I was in Louisiana, I was a news writer and hadn't taken up photography yet, so the sole wetlands image I show here was shot later during a trip to a Georgia coastal island. I'll have to go back to Louisiana for photographs soon.
I'm donating 2% of my profits to the Sierra Club's Delta (Louisiana) Chapter which is working with the Atchafalaya Basin and its cypress.
