ABOUT ME 11/2022
I’m a contemporary landscape photographer. My images are about light, space, mood and sense of place in eastern Long Island, NY. I photograph natural and built environments and often combine the two. Growing up in one of the private beach communities in walking distance to Long Island Sound left a big imprint. I'm attracted to the sea and open spaces altered by light and atmospheric effects. Objects placed or found there are part of what defines a place and adds pictorial and sometimes historic interest.
Most of the beach communities here are a throwback to when Long Island was an escape route out of New York City for vacation and weekend getaways and for growing families seeking a "better place to raise their kids." In the 60's-70's, when I was growing up, Suffolk County changed from rural to suburban as development shifted further east. My dad's work designing and landscaping new home properties provided a way of seeing suburban housing and developments in relationship to the larger American Landscape - past and present.
I use Canon 35mm pro cameras/lenses and currently, an iPhone 13 Pro Max. While iPhone can't offer the same resolute sharpness as 35mm, a well exposed picture can be printed up to 16 x 20. Images are printed at a pro shop in Michigan and available as archival paper prints, canvas wraps, metal and acrylic prints. I ship standard
& custom size prints anywhere.
A small collection of images is maintained on this site but my image database keeps growing. Please use the contact form, send me an email or call if you have a question or are seeking a particular type of image. I sell privately and for editorial use. Pricing for editorial/commercial use is guided by the American Society of Media Photographers.
I offer digital downloads for people who prefer to do their own printing. Please make your request using the contact form.
My background is photojournalism, a BFA/painting/SUNY Purchase and an MSLIS/Library Science/LIU.
Thanks and I hope you enjoy!
