I first discovered my natural vocation as a tree photographer during a five-year sojourn in France.  I lived a short walk from the Parc de Sceaux, "The Petit Versailles", on the outskirts of Paris, and was deeply struck by its landscapes and manicured beauty.  As any photographer might, I sought to keep the initial sensation of unexpected inspiration and wonder witnessed therein.  Several hundred pictures later I came to appreciate and explore the innately human quality of trees, their contours and sprawl.  It has become the core element of my photographic composition.
