Cormorants at Niagara Falls

Sometimes the challenge in creating impactful travel photography is to isolate the photo from the environment. Originally I was taken by many cormorants occupying bare trees along the Niagara River. Try as I might, I could not compose a decent photo as the background and the subject matter were much too busy. Finally, I decided …

Kingston, on the Hudson

Sometimes life throws you fog. When that happens it’s best to get out your camera. For this image, I used the old, trustworthy Nikon N90, Kodak Portra 400 Film, Nikkor 35mm f/1.8 lens. The camera did a great job of metering a fairly tough image despite the fact that it is more than 30 years …

Woodstock Dog

This dapper dog and his personal slave were very happy to pose for a portrait in on New Year’s Day in Woodstock, NY. Because of the cold light and the overall lack of color that you get in mid winter, I chose Ilford HP5 400 black and white film and tried to leverage the rich …

Foggy Landscape at Harriton House

The Nikon Z7ii is an astounding camera, and is probably the most capable camera body that I have ever used. It produces a 48MP image with image stabilization and very good low light capability. For this shot, I got up early on a foggy morning and ran out to a 18th century mansion, Harriton House, …

Breathing Underwater

Back in the 1980’s I started shooting film underwater with a Minolta Maxxum Film Camera sealed in an Ikelite housing. I was terrible at it – mostly because, by the time I had my film processed, I had completely forgotten the camera settings and the reason behind the photo compositions. I wasn’t learning anything, I …

2020 – Building Creative Energy

2020 – In hindsight, was all about a gathering in of energy and creativity. We didn’t know it at the time, but we were actively resetting our social, family, financial and professional worlds – all isolated in our little bubbles – but as an uncoordinated, parallel, world effort. Who we became as a result of …

Shades in the Trees

Stark, cold, and creepy. Winter in the woods has it’s own kind of beauty.

Submersive Activity

I’ve spent hundreds of hours underwater and to me, the most intriguing part is the boundary layer between the air and water – where the elements, physics and perception blend.
