I was asked for fifteen photos that have changed, inspired, or created my style of photography. It was a daunting task. To be brutally honest, I cannot come up with fifteen photos (not even close) I have hundreds of slides and a small wall of hard drives filled with some pretty nice images that I’ve amassed over time, but I dislike 99% of them. Yes, there are some magic moments in time, but that’s all they have become for me. The images don’t speak to me – I never had that personal experience of capturing the actual moment in time. It was always the surfer’s experience and wave of a lifetime; memories etched deeply into the mind. My submissions are moments of personal experiences that have changed the way I look at my photography and even changed my life.
