Photography enables me to tell the story of the wild places of the American Northeast in a way that is genuine and moving. Through a receptive relationship with nature, I seek to portray a truth about each landscape which is both timeless and beautiful, inspiring a greater degree of appreciation for nature by visually communicating the quintessential character of a place.
While I’m in the field, experiencing a fascinating landscape first-hand, my goal is first and foremost to capture the mood and character of the earth which both speaks strongly to me and my personal vision, and which is central to the identity and subtle characteristics of the land. Nature, of course, is a marvelously diverse subject. In conveying the essential truths of every landscape, I leverage exquisite light, the motion of wind and water and the transformative power of the seasons in order to strike a fine balance between the complexities of a landscape and the simplicity of its forms, patterns, and rhythms. I seek out those scenes, perspectives, vantage points and conditions that allow me to make a sincere statement about the magical qualities of nature in its myriad forms.
A close personal connection with the natural world permeates my life as far back as I can remember. Out of my earlier work with drawing and painting, I developed a passion for photography which affords me the privilege of bringing my intimate, personal vision of the natural world to others. I routinely challenge myself to explore new landscapes and discover fresh ways of seeing, always striving to faithfully present the drama and beauty of the land, distilling the raw truths of the natural world within photographs that speak directly to the human soul.
