From Where I Stand

When I started taking my photography more seriously, I used a very simple concept: take a bunch of photos from a single vantage point. Move up, down, and around, but limit your ‘centre’ to a single point. This technique forced me to become a bit more inventive, it forced me to carefully consider things that may not grab my attention right away. So rather than photographing a single subject I began to look for other elements that may not be obvious. I also forced myself to make photos in fairly mundane surroundings, looking for interesting elements.

This became the foundation to much of my photography. I spend a lot of time carefully assessing my surroundings and looking for the best compositions.

The ‘tag’, From Where I Stand has also made me realize that through all the photos I have made in the past several years, I have borne witness to some pretty amazing things, and I look forward to sharing more of them here, along with the stories of their creation.
