When someone asks what it is about photography that I love, my answer is that imagery provides me the ability to transmit a feeling.
I began shooting at the age of 19, taking every photography class the local college offered…twice. Right from those early years, I was drawn to primarily capture scenes of nature and a mix of the sky and land (what I call Skycapes).
And over the last 30 years of providing corporate imagery, event coverage & pro sports assignments, may favorite subject to capture is the creation that the creator created. A scripture that undergirds my love of the medium of photography is Psalm 19:1 “The heavens proclaim the glory of God. The skies display his craftsmanship.” In other words, my vocation allows me (through my imagery) to say ‘look’! Look at the majesty of God’s handiwork! And at its highest level, all I am really doing is making art of God’s art…which is a lot.
Whatever can be known about God is clear, since he himself made it so. Since the creation of the world, the invisible realities, God’s eternal power and divinity, have become visible, recognized through the things he has made. – Romans 1:20
Each chapter is inspired by and bears the name of a particular cross image.
The name of the cross image inspires the selection of a bible verse, setting the tone for that chapter
The theme of each devotional is inspired by the name of that cross image and the tone of the accompanying scripture.
After shooting the cross for a few years, I toured a gallery show and published a book titled What the Cross Means to Me by Harvest House Publishing. My newest book, Views of Calvary is set to release in the fall of 2022.
Each chapter is rounded out by a quote from a Saint or an excerpt from an old church hymn
