I am based in rural New Hampshire. I have had the good fortune to be able to travel this great country, backpacking along both the east and west coast. I have also been attending a huge annual event called Burning Man in Nevada for over a decade. Many of my photos were taken there.
Photographing people is most rewarding. Slight nuances of expression can convey widely different messages or emotions. What I enjoy most is being the impartial observer and catching people in the candid moments just being themselves. I have experience with a number of genres relating to people such as portraiture, lifestyle, school photos, family , boudoir, and glamour.
I am available for hire for portraits, school photos, family, kids, pets, glamour, boudoir, and more. If you have an idea I haven't mentioned, contact me and let's talk.
If you are a model looking to build your portfolio, I am open to a Time for Photos trade.
As a photographer I hope to evoke a response in my audience. I want people to feel happy, inspired, sad, alone, compassion, frightened, amused, connected, or a sense of wonder. I want people to reflect on what it means to be human or to be a part of this planet. When I hear that one of my photos elicited a response -whatever it may be, then I feel that I have achieved a measure of success.
My approach to photography is somewhat like a crow drawn by shiny objects. Things catch my eye and I do my best to capture their image the way it appears to me. I enjoy capturing these images; sharing the images with others is the other half of the enjoyment. If a person lingers on an image, giving it a second look, and has an emotional response, it’s as if we made a connection like eye contact.
