My aim was to convey the beauty of the landscape in a visual form to move other viewers. Using my camera I explored different ways in which to interpret natural scenes. I see the world through the empowerment of nature created by textures and tones. Ansel Adams has been an incredible influence on me and this is communicated in The Pinnacles. I feel the precise and refined processes, as well as the tonalities and textures of our aesthetic, are quite similar.
