Thank you for stopping by. Here you will find images that I've captured from all over New England. My journey as a photographer started when I was in high school. I shot different things here and there, but nothing serious. My first camera was a Minolta X700. I still have it, though it hasn't seen film in many years. I call it "The General".
Usher in the digital age... My first digital camera was a Sony Mavica. You could put a floppy disc in it and load the images right on your PC. Cutting edge back then. I used a few "point and shoots" through 2001. Fast forwarding to 2004, I purchased a Sony Cybershot with a whopping 8MP. It served me well for years, though my interest in the craft slowly faded. After all, I really wasn't shooting much, if at all at the time. In 2009 I was bitten by the bug again. I purchased my first Nikon, a Nikon D5000. I loved that camera. It was with me no matter where I went. I sold it after 2 years of putting it through it paces, and purchased a Nikon D7000. This camera is extremely well put together. Like the D5000, it's always with me. One thing I've learned about photography...."right time right place", have your gear with you just incase. Some of my favorite images have come from that "spur of the moment" feeling. Fellow photographers know exactly what I'm talking about. I currently shoot with a Nikon D7100. It has exceeded all of my expectations.
I've been asked if I have any formal training in photography. I do not. Everything I've learned has been hands on in the field. I love to experiment with different techniques. I edit my photos using Lightroom and on occasion Aperture for Mac.
My favorite things to capture are land and seascapes, sunrises/sunsets, and old barns. Lighthouses are a particular favorite of mine. To me, they symbolize strength, guidance and protection.
My youngest son Brayden, 11, has taken a liking to photography and has won awards through the Reflections program. His work can be found in an album titled "Brayden's Work".
Feel free to look around, comment on, or purchase any of the images you see here.
Thank you for your support!
