When I look upon this photo my mind sees the flowing movement of long grasses underwater. Submerged and swaying with the rush of the tide. It’s a balanced fluid motion, a soft rocking back and forth carrying us away to far off places. Relaxing spaces full of soft beds, kind hearts, and unbridled hope.

Here you'll find my complete archive of photographs—excepting my nine portfolio photos. I welcome you to drift through my array of photographs made since this site's launch in January 2014.

Achieving great results with shallow depth of field is all about your aperture and your distance to your subject. Close in shooting at larger apertures will help you produce this desired effect. Whereas backing away and stopping down to a smaller aperture will increase your area of focus. Get out there and experiment!
Soon you take the lessons of heart openers with you off the mat. Focusing on your heart becomes A Thing. Cultivating it. Protecting it. Honoring it. You come to understand the importance of keep your heart open for others and for yourself. This is the love that will save the world.
The hyacinth. A flower and name seemingly of bronze age origin. It’s a flower of imagination, fantasy, and hope. The kind of flower a concept artist would create when designing an idyllic alien world. I love them.
The exceptional thing about living through history is having, if only in a small way, the rare chance to shape it. By staying home, observing social distancing protocols, calling a friend, keeping a journal, checking on a neighbor, telling someone you love them, taking a walk, or making a photograph. Small acts when executed across communities and continents affect real change in response to an entirely new environment.
Evenfall of Christmas Eve 2019 came with a flourish over southern Ocean County, New Jersey. Deep blues shot through with red, yellow, and orange, glowed elegant over the Cedar Run Dock Road salt marsh. A welcome sight to many in anticipation of the joy and love that overfills holiday hearts. I wish continued blessings to those whose cups are full, yet I will not miss the chance to recognize, love, and honor those whom struggle with loss and loneliness during this time. I see you.

The shortest day of the year is here. December 21, 2019, marks the winter solstice. Eager to chase light and document this celestial event, it is not lost on me how nature and the broader world mirror my own darkness. Yet as it it will forever be, light will rise in the east come to chase away darkness.
One common mistake I observe when making sunset photographers is other people leaving the scene too early. More often than not the best color, intense drama and sunset magic happens after the sun goes down. So when you are out there shooting sunset make sure you wait for it!
Winter is disruptive to time, or at least our perception to it. Short days and long nights wreak havoc on our internal clocks sending us reeling to adjust. At times late afternoon feels like the middle of the night and the middle of the night feels like prime time. Despite the disruption, long nights give us much to enjoy—superlative sunsets not least among them.
