Piece description from the artist
Sometimes taking a walk around a neighborhood will give you little surprises. While taking a jaunt around the little beach town of Altona, Victoria, Australia, this urban parrot was caught enjoying some perch-time during an evening thunderstorm. In an area where you only see earth-toned pigeons and Australian Magpies, this urban parrot was a colorful surprise.
My focus and intent as a photographer is to transport the viewer from their place in space and time to another world. I am an adventure photographer who's goal is to capture those images that epitomize adventure. I want to instill in my viewers a sense of transformation and transportation of their mind – to take the viewer to the places and situations where the photographs reside. I want the viewer's heart rate to increase when they see an adrenaline filled photo; a sense of height and dizziness when they see a photo from a mountain top; a sense of calming and relaxation when they focus on the awe-inspiring landscapes of seldom visited positions. I strive to embody adventure in every photograph and strive to share these images with everyone.
