An avid collector of images since childhood, I am pleased to share these moments of light and form stilled in time by the press of a button. From the early days of my first Kodak 110 Instamatic camera to my current Nikon D750 digital SLR -- and many lenses in between -- I am drawn to scenes and shapes that connect us to something beyond ourselves and unite us on this earthly, yet spiritual journey.
My early inspiration for photography and love for the natural world came from my father. From the time I was very young I remember my dad, his trusty Kodak 35 mm camera in one hand and mine in the other as we hiked back woods, creeks and hillsides in New York’s rural southern tier and captured innumerable family occasions and scenes of every day life.
This particular collection explores themes of where things grow, transitions, the people and scenes around our own famous image city of Rochester, NY and at large. I’ve always been fascinated by the tenacity of living things to take root in seemingly uninhabitable places and for beauty to be found in the simplest of shapes and forms.
A deeply heartfelt thank you to all the people in my life who have supported my existence, continue to love and inspire me. May we be so blessed to continue these amazing journeys on this planet for a long while still.
And thank you, for taking this moment to look, reflect and hopefully enjoy what you see.
