Specializing in sweeping wide angle landscapes and honed in macro photographs serves to grow my appreciation of a world less touched by humanity while subsequently exposing the oft-underrated natural beauty of New Jersey, my lifelong home.
Leaning on photography as a mental respite from the rigors of the everyday world, the core of my philosophy is to keep things simple. Loathe to overthink or over-conceptualize the moment, I allow an intuitive response to my surroundings to dictate the process. From that moment in the field through my time post-processing back home, I work under a simple mandate to produce a final image that best highlights the splendor of the place I’ve called home for decades.
Almost four years in, photography still remains a relatively recent and most unlikely passion. From humble beginnings New Year’s Day 2012, uncertainly participating in a yearlong photo-a-day project I assuredly thought I would quit, to where I sit today—a dedicated shooter through-and-through. Photography, a discipline I once haughtily scoffed at as an ignorant youngster who thought he could draw well enough, has manifest as the creative outlet I never knew I loved. Life is strange.
