Welcome to My Quasar, the home for my photography.
I'll start this off by defining what a quasar is. Simply put, it is an extremely active & energetic nucleus at the center of a galaxy. While many galaxies exist, few of them have quasars. That is, in essence, what this site represents to me; it is my quasar: a place to display & represent the work that I create.
In general, I am a nature photographer and tend to focus on certain genre more than others. My main interests are wildlife (mostly birds & insects), Urban/Industrial deterioration (what many refer to as 'Urban Exploration'), and panoramic photography (again, generally nature oriented).
While my favorite subjects, nature and abandoned/decayed industrial & urban environments, may seem like complete opposites, I find much in common between the two. When a place or structure that man has built has been left to itself, nature begins to rebuild itself, slowly tearing apart the remnants of what we left behind. In just a few years you will begin to see trees, grasses, birds & small mammals inhabiting these areas, and from there the deterioration of the structure will progress exponentially. It is this fragile time, when nature is beginning to reclaim what humans have abandoned, that I am most interested in.
Over the years, I have become increasingly interested in bird photography. It is this interest that has taught me much about patience and the importance of 'doing things properly'. When looking for birds, and specifically smaller & migratory species, patience and smooth, calm actions are key. There can be no rushing in, sudden noises or movements, or adjusting to get a better angle. Many times, the key to a good photo will be simply finding your spot, and waiting for things to come to you. It is this patient, calm behavior that I have over time incorporated in to my daily life and into my photography which allows me to capture the activity and energy of my galaxy.
