I live in the rural New England town of Athol, Massachusetts with my wife. Our two grown children have "left the nest". During my career as a craftsman / woodworker, I have built guitars, harpsichords, and fine furniture. I am currently employed as a manager for a company that makes both reproduction Shaker, and reproduction colonial furniture.
My interest in photography began during the time I was in college, majoring in natural resource conservation. I was involved in many outdoor activities, and found myself drawn to landscape / nature photography. Over the years I continued to make pictures, but not with the same passion. This passion was rekindled with the advent of digital photography. I was drawn to digital photography because of the degree of personal control and creativity this medium affords.
I am most likely to be photographing outdoors. My favorite subjects include New England landscapes, Maine coast seascapes, lighthouses, architecture, and wildlife. My goal is to better "see" the world around me and capture New England's unique beauty in a way that can be shared and provide inspiration to others.
My images have been exhibited in galleries in New England, and as a member of Digital Photography Internationale, my work has been shown in galleries across the United States. My photography has been featured on book, magazine and catalog covers as well as corporate advertising campaigns. In addition, my images have won numerous awards on the internet, and are featured in several online galleries. As a teacher, I am on the faculty of the Sharon Arts Center, NH, the Fitchburg Art Museum, MA, and the Petersham Craft Center, MA where I teach several workshops on digital photography.
