"I want to bring awareness to science and nature through the use of technology and art. Many people ask what makes a "good" picture. I believe that If somebody sees an image that moves them emotionally or philosophically, causes them to think or ask a question or view the world in a new way it is a good photo and I have done my job as a photographer. "
