Reflections of Creation

One of the greatest things that God has given humans is the ability to see beauty in the world around us. I have never noticed my dog stop and stare at the beauty of a forest or the incredible colors of a sunset, but these things have the ability to stop me in my tracks in wonder and awe. This website is my attempt to capture some of the beauty and glory of an indescribable God by capturing reflections of Him that I see in His creation.


Why I like shooting in RAW format

I was asked this week why I shoot pictures in RAW format 99% of the time. For those who don't know, RAW format is a totally unprocessed shot which means that the camera sets nothing (saturation, sharpness, color or black and white, etc). The problem with shooting in RAW is that the pictures are enormous and you then have to use your camera's software on your computer to set all the settings you bypassed on your camera.

For me, I think the trade off is worth it. Here's an example of why I like shooting in RAW because I can't decide which way I like this. The black and white has it's own mystique to it, but I love the colors in the other one. Hmmmm, quite the conundrum for me.

the most important part of this website

I enjoy photography and I always find myself wanting more time to be outside with a camera. The idea of posting my pictures was born out of the love for my wife, Alison (, who hates it when I do not take my days off. This website, reflections of creation, is a way to force me to get out of the office from time to time and putting me outside where I love to be. While a creative outlet for me, I hope this is an encouraging site for you, and one which helps point you to the Creator of all this beauty around us. God is so much bigger and amazing than we could ever imagine, and He loves you and me! What an amazing thought! He loves us so much that He was even willing to let His son, Jesus, die as a sacrifice for us. That fact is more beautiful than any picture you will see on this website. I hope you know Jesus, but if you do not, please email me or go to Thanks again for coming and stop by again soon.
