ABOUT ME 09/2022
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 walking distance to Long Island Sound, in one of those private beach communities that proliferate the coast lines here left an imprint, so I'm attracted to the sea and open deep space altered by light and atmospheric effects. Objects placed or found there are part of what defines a space or place and add to my interest in photographing them.
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 involved designing and landscaping new home properties, which was also imprinted, so I photograph newer and older houses as a means to convey sense of place.
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 Colorado and available as archival paper prints, canvas wraps, metal and acrylic prints. I ship standard
& custom size prints anywhere. I also offer digital downloads for people who prefer to do their own printing.
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.
My background is photojournalism, a BFA/painting/SUNY Purchase and an MSLIS/Library Science/LIU.
Thanks and I hope you enjoy!
