I am a professional artist working primarily in the landscape of my home, the woods, lakes, mountains, and streams of New York State. My interest in photographing landscapes is derived mainly from my love of the natural world. For me, the appeal of photography lies in the opportunity to create art in an environment that ceaselessly inspires and invigorates me. In photography I strive to make images that are a reflection of my sensibilities and how I see the world. My goal is to make images that are not about place, but rather my response to that place. With time I have realized that my best work comes from areas with which I am most familiar and have a deep connection. Ultimately I wish for my work to reflect what it is to me, a celebration of the creative experience in nature.
