Landscape photography is my passion. I love to get out into nature, hike along a trail, and take in the beauty of nature. In my photographs I look for the sense of the place, and concentrate on the detail. Many of my images are closeups of what I find along the trail, away from the more traveled way. It can be leaves covered in frost, as the first light warms the edges. It can be standing in a brook after a storm, or snowshoeing out to capture the fresh ice on a snow covered stream. The light reveals the shape and beauty of nature’s creations. I look for the beauty in the quiet and eloquent light of nature.

I live in Poughkeepsie, NY, in the beautiful Hudson River Valley that provides so many opportunities to explore and photograph. I have been featured in the Poughkeepsie Journal in its Portrait of an Artist series. I have exhibited in local and regional galleries, and have a solo show at Locust Grove, the Samuel F. B. Morse Estate, in 2012.

All of the images on my website are available for purchase in various sizes or frames. I know it is hard to purchase a photograph without seeing it in person first. Let me show you the quality and care I put in an image, from the choice of paper, printer, inks, mat and frame. Once you pick an image, I can print it in varying sizes, and am not limited to the standard frame sizes. I can make it a canvas, or frame to custom size. I want to make it a great experience for your choice of image. Please contact me with any questions or orders.

I also like hats. Lots of hats. Lately big brimmed hats. At right is one. We were at Tourweep in May, 2012 at the North Rim of the Grand Canyon. Carol took this image. Holding down my tripod with the updrafts from the Canyon. The wind did get my hat brim!

Maybe that’s why photographers are shy about getting their pictures taken.

Trips get me to more interesting places. My wife Carol and I love visiting National Parks. Some of the images I have made are from Acadia, Yellowstone, Grand Teton, Arches, Canyonlands, Grand Canyon, Great Smoky Mountains, Zion and Bryce Canyon National Parks. Many more of my images come from state and other regional parks. I have many more to visit, as my Bucket List is not complete. The National Parks are our greatest idea.

This is an image of me when I was shooting film. My primary choice at that time was medium format black and white film, as I loved the detail the larger negative gave you. This was taken on the Brooklyn Bridge by a good friend. That’s a Nikon F4 with the motor drive base around my neck, and a great old chrome Bronica S2. Still have them. That Bronica was tack sharp. The mirror dropped when you pressed the shutter (sometimes called a guillotine shutter) and the noise was quite surprising. I remember warning subjects on portraits what the sound was like. Great memories.
