I walk out the door of wherever I am, my gear in my backpack. Sometimes I know the general direction of where I am headed and what I want to create. Sometimes I have planned the image or footage in detail. More often I just wander off to where my heart leads me that day. I wait to take out my camera until I get the urge to shoot. Until I feel the drive and inspiration and feel pumped to create. It is a special state of mind, and I love being in it.
When shooting a landscape I try to make it reflect my emotional landscape as I shoot. I don’t bother too much about things being technically perfect. I find more interest in caring about the mood and the feeling that I want to communicate. This means that my landscapes are not always balanced, not always sharp and not always perfectly exposed. But it also means that the flaws that I choose to show are intentional parts of what I create.
