In my fine art photography I aim to convey the “gestural” energy in the natural world. Focusing primarily on water and flora I seek to reveal the often unseen patterns, textures and rhythms that reflect this energy.
Color, a sense of movement, and spontaneity are important expressive elements for me as they counter my more deliberative nature.
Location, time of day and mood influence the resulting imagery, which I hope engender a sense of wonder and optimism.
My images are captured in a variety of locations including Long Island, America's National Parks, Iceland, Aruba, Arizona, Alaska, Upstate New York and New England. I handle the complete workflow of each image, from capture, through editing and digital development, to producing the final print.
My full-time foray into photography is the fourth step in my passion-based professional life, which started in the world of advertising as a strategic planner. After a second master’s degree (in psychology and marketing), I transitioned into a highly fulfilling 9-year period as a clinical professor of marketing. From there I spent most of the last 4 years as an entrepreneur, trying to build a marketing-based software-as-a-service business, which was a valuable learning experience.
