I have always enjoyed being behind the camera taking pictures of friends & family and of places I’ve visited. In particular I’ve been fascinated with photographing the coastline and specifically sunsets, attempting to capture the color, beauty and spectacle that mother nature presents to us each evening as the sun falls beneath the horizon.
Born and raised on the southern shore of Long Island, New York, I spent a lot of my days walking on the beach, swimming in the ocean, sitting out on the pier, building sandcastles and beachcombing for shells and rocks. I believe this has fed my photographic fascination with the coastline.
Over the years, with moving to New England, going to college, working full time, buying a house and all those other typical responsibilities that go along with being an adult, the time I spent taking pictures greatly decreased to the point of almost vanishing. I got to the point where I felt like something was missing from my life. I spent months trying to determine what was missing. Then one day I picked up the camera, went down to a local pond after a heavy wet snowfall and shot off a bunch of pictures. With each picture I took, I felt more fulfilled and realized this was what was missing…..photography. Without even noticing it, I spent 2 hours at the pond and there was this sense of excitement/anticipation about getting home to see how the images I took came out.
Since that day at the pond, I have made taking time to do photography one of the priorities in my life. There is so much beauty out in the world we live in and I hope my photography can capture this so it can be shared with others for a lifetime.
