From an early morning sunrise at Bryce Canyon to the late afternoon glow in a small fishing village in Nova Scotia, it's all about the quest for unique light, the search for unusual perspective; the geometric forms half-hidden in nature; – These are the places that occupy a special spot in my imagination. Places that seem to suggest more than just another beautiful spot. Transcending conventional clichés of location, each photograph is more than a record of natural beauty. Within the image, a feeling of vanishing moments when light, tide, and time hold one's being in their grip and solicits a quiet and introspective moment that reflects the solitude of the work that I’ve done over the years.
For over 30 years I used 4x5 and 2 1/4 cameras in my photography. Today I now use the Nikon D850 for the majority of my work but I still carry a Hasselblad CM in my backpack. For printing I have a Canon PROGRAF 24" Large Format Inkjet Printer and in this remarkable era of technology my photographs are created by hand, one at a time, by me, using a labor-intensive process, so you are getting a handcrafted print that matches what I envisioned when the image was captured. The images are produced using the highest quality professional papers available for fine art printing and the results are rich in stunning detail and image quality.
Originally from South Philly, for the last 16 years I have enjoyed living in the rolling hills of southern Chester County with my wife Karen and my German Shorthair Pointer, Briscoe, in the small town of Oxford, PA
