Your point of view in your work appears to have a very dramatic effect. Is this intentional?
I want my images to be significant, which is why I shoot at wide angles and at times of day that are atypical to most landscape photography images. Shooting wide is difficult, but done correctly can give the viewer a palpable sense of place. I try to be straightforward with my images and the Alberta landscapes are quite dramatic so I just let them do their thing.
What goes on in your head when you’re composing a photograph? Do you think your emotions come through in your work?
When I’m composing my images I’m really just hoping that I’m holding the camera straight so I don’t have to do any cropping during post. I live in a beautiful part of the world so I just drive out, click the shutter and hop back in the car, that’s all. That being said, the main thing I’m aware of is simplicity. I try to make each composition as uncomplicated as I possibly can, which I feel adds to the significance of each image. I wish I could say I was a great photographer but it’s my subjects that make me whatever it is I am.
I don’t feel that my emotions come through in my work as much as my personality does. The willingness to go photograph is the emotion.
