Photography has been a lifelong passion. Now, living with a rare form of non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, my photography has taken on a special meaning. It gives me an outlet for my own struggles and challenges me to get out in nature and create images that evoke a feeling or sense of the moment.
This image was captured while visiting the Canyonlands of southern Utah. With hours of watching the storm clouds across the canyons, and hundreds of attempts to capture the perfect moment, I arrived at this final shot which was later carefully processed to create the black and white image. I’m inspired by the great masters of nature photography such as Ansel Adams and Edward Weston.
