I am not influenced by any specific photographer. Simply having the knowledge that I can create the images and seeing potential photographs in my surrounding drives me.
I think part of it is that I feel like people have so little appreciation for their surroundings, for nature and all that it holds and offers to us. I love nature and I always want a piece of it to remember and I would also like to bring nature to other people on a level that they might be able to appreciate. Perhaps through my experiences and my photographs I can bring others closer to something I love, help to develop an appreciation or even plant a small seed of appreciation.
I guess, in short, I'm inspired by nature and driven by my own passions.
