Hero's Odyssey Mythology Photography catches the exalted, archetypal beauty of models set against nature's epic scenery. I'm known to shoot a lot and finish a lot, so you'll get several hundred shots from a typical shoot! Outdoor photography is all about improv and creativity, as one can never predict the light/surf/tides/wind. Shoots are fun and laid-back, and I always invite models to bring all their ideas and creativity too! I've been fortunate to work with so many great models in the context of exalted scenery, and here's a bit more about me, along with a video of my upcoming book including my landscapes:

"Myths and creeds are heroic struggles to comprehend the truth in the world." --Ansel Adams

"The camera does not lie, and the photographer's job is to angle it so as to tell of truth's greater beauty." --Dr. E of Hero's Odyssey Mythology Photography

"€œIn both figure and landscape, I want to get to the point where people say of my work: that man feels deeply, that man feels keenly."€ --Vincent van Gogh

"I detest writing or talking about technique in general . . . That art is something which, though produced by human hands, is not wrought by hands alone, but wells up from a deeper source, from man's soul, while much of the proficiency and technical expertise associated with art reminds me of what would be called self-righteousness in religion. . . My strongest sympathies in the literary as well as in the artistic field are with those artists in whom I see the soul at work most strongly." --Vincent Van Gogh

"Millions of men have lived to fight, build palaces and boundaries, shape destinies and societies; but the compelling force of all times has been the force ...of originality and creation profoundly affecting the roots of human spirit." -Ansel Adams

"My approach to photography is based on my belief in the vigor and values of the world of nature—in the aspects of grandeur and of the minutiae all about us. I believe in growing things, and in the things which have grown and died magnificently. I believe in people and in the simple aspects of human life, and in the relation of man to nature. I believe man must be free, both in spirit and in society, that he must build strength into himself, affirming the "enormous beauty of the world" and acquiring the confidence to see and to express his vision. And I believe in photography as one means of expressing this affirmation, and of achieving an ultimate happiness and faith." -Ansel Adams
