My photography work is an extension of my artwork. It is more than just an image. It is an opportunity to capture a moment in time and hold a feeling and emotion. This is why I enjoy working with couples and families to capture their precious memories. There is more opportunity and fun having a subject to work with in the landscape. My main focus is on spontaneous and effortless shots with strong attention to details. Lets play and collaborate.

My print work focuses on the ephemeral atmosphere a single landscape can reveal. I’m fascinated by how the same landscape can convey completely different feelings. The atmosphere I choose can be one that last a few hours—a morning fog—or last a few seconds—the moment before the sun dips below the horizon. My interest stems from the nature of New England weather: how it can rain, snow, and be 60° all in the same week.

My appreciation for this arose in March 2012 during a visit to North Truro and Provincetown. Since then, my curiosity has branched out to the exploration of time and weather in landscape as a way to evoke emotion. My work utilizes color and value in order to portray a sense of place with its varying luminosity, temperature, and time.
