Photography is...

"Photography is- Recognizing the Moment and being able to capture the moment, as we experience it through our perceptions and senses. Photography is- seeing what is, what is not, and what can be. Photography is- paying close attention to detail and learning a little bit more about ourselves, the people and objects around us, and the world we live in, as we know it. Photography is- appreciating the beauty and substance of what we can see and our ability to translate this beauty to others. Photography is- a marriage of science and art through the application of technical knowledge and the expression of thoughts and emotions. Through all of this, photography is- Preserving History."

Larry Davis - Owner/Founder"Photography has become a way of life and an ideal medium for me, in which I can express my ideas, thoughts, emotions, and opinions through the images I produce. In no other area of my life, aside from photography, have I been able to appreciate the production of my efforts both aesthetically and technically.

I believe that the single most important thing I have learned through photography is "Creativity". Photography contains an unlimited amount of creative potential, which can be manipulated to produce beautiful images with relative ease. All that is required to achieve these results (besides good equipment) is the desire to excel in every photograph I shoot and a small portion of patience. Although the extensive use of technical knowledge does help a lot when photographing, it is the love of photography itself which leads to the greatest of photographs."

----Larry E. Davis, Jr.
