I’m a craftsman first, artist second._MNO6119 (3)

My craft is to pair a modern aesthetic with classic principles of landscape composition to create simple, bold interpretations of the Hudson Valley.  I approach each shot in a simple manner: start with the primary feature and build the rest of the photo in layers.  Add only what is necessary to accentuate the primary subject.

My reverence for the land leads me to portray my subjects with a level of disassociation.  The viewer is invited to observe the scene but they play no role in its presence.

I currently do most of my shooting along the Shawangunk Ridge and Hudson River, occasionally venturing to NYC, the Catskills, and beyond.

Thank you for visiting.
