Living in Southern Maine, and greater New England, one is surrounded by so much beauty. After retiring from a career in higher education I continued with a hobby in photography. I found that my educational and professional experiences in theater be it acting, directing, lighting, or set design all transferred to enhance my development as a photographer. I have spent much of the past decade observing the beauty that surrounds us, some very obvious and some not so much.
My primary focus has been in landscape, seascape and cityscape images. It is not only the taking of the photographs I find so intriguing and rewarding, but perhaps more so are the discoveries one makes in the process. There is the continuous searching, the visiting and revisiting of scenes. Then there is the looking for when the best lighting may be, or weather conditions, or which seasons may be more suitable for a particular scene. I found that while some situations may present themselves in a relatively timely fashion, it can take years to get that one image you were hoping to capture. Along the way I also found myself getting into wildlife photography, something I never really considered an interest, but it has become an extremely enjoyable part of what I do. A challenge to ones patience for sure, but the exposure to this natural world that is all around us is priceless.
My work has come to find home in over 40 states and 20 countries. I have had the joy of meeting so many wonderful people, and look forward to continuing to doing so.
