"Landscape photography is an extension of being out there; it's
sharing what I've seen, and I'm motivated by the need to capture
it. I can relate to the hard work of it--you can't just fly by.
You have to want to go out there and spend the time it takes to see things
and portray them."
"William Henry Jackson, and the dedication it took to lug all that
equipment into the field way back in the 1870s. More recently, Jim Brandenburg,
the Northwoods' journal that he published in National Geographic--that's
unbelievable, just the discipline to do that--one photo a day for the
season. Also Alan Nyiri--his book, White Mountains of New Hampshire, has
been an inspiration to me."
