About Photographer

I am an orchardist. I have endeavored to create an artistic record as a photograph of fruit that I have grown in its "most visually beautiful form prior to being harvested". Multiple fruits ripen in orchards. However, not all fruit can be considered an object of beauty, in terms of its shape or leaf distribution. Daily tending of plants which is done all year round, as well as weather conditions that change on a yearly basis result in annual variations in the final quality of products.
