Zeus's Thunderbolt

Zeus was the head of the Greek Olympian pantheon. He was king of gods and men. He is often depicted with thunderbolts in his capacity as lord of the winds, clouds rain and thunder. He hurled thunderbolts at those who displeased him. Thunderbolts were also recognised as a symbol of masculinity and virility.

Painting with light

I love to shoot in natural light, especially outdoors. Window light works great also. Natural light varies so much and so frequently - soft morning glow, sharp midday glare, hazy sunset, cloudly grey cast, twilight blue - so many varietions, hues, tones, color changes, moods, and settings! And when you add the human subject to these natural light varietions, you get a myriad variety of moods, emotions, and contrasts. I can't think of a more beautiful combination - natural light, the human subject, and a natural setting - for creative artistic photography! It's like painting with light!

Truth or myth?

As a creative artist photographer who paints with light, I often look to great painters, sculptors, and image makers from the past to inspire me and call me to excel as far as I can.

I love the challenge of making my photographic images look like paintings. That is why I love natural light more than artificial light. Natural light is luminous - ever changing, casting shadows, interacting with mist, air, moisture, texture, moving and still objects and people.

I have recently returned to myth-making - creating images of figures, personalities, and heroes who are human but seeking to be divine or super-human.

We are human creatures with a creative spirit that yearns for the sublime, the heavenly vision of what is eternal - love, hope, peace, and undying friedship.
