I am an award-winning photographer who started my career at the age of 12 when I had my own chemical photo darkroom. My professional photography career started 8 years later in 1990.
For the next 17 years I was a photojournalist based in New England. Published worldwide, some of my credits include: The Associated Press, Boston Herald, Connecticut Post, Cape Cod Times, Cape Cod View Magazine, National Geographic Traveler Magazine, New Haven Register, Sojourns Travel Magazine, and USA Today to name just a few.
In 2003 I was awarded the New England Press Association’s Photographer of the Year Award, an award presented to me for my photojournalist work throughout the entire 2002 calendar year working as a freelance photographer for the Cape Cod Times.
I am a digital photography pioneer, helping bring the first digital cameras to the Connecticut Post Newspaper in the late 1990′s. In addition I assisted with the implementation and training of the photo staff in the use of digital cameras and equipment at the Cape Cod Times Newspaper in the late 1990′s and early 2000′s.
In 2003 while still a photojournalist I starting selling my landscape photography at fine art festivals
. In 2006 when I moved to Arizona, I left my career as a photojournalist behind and have since been a full-time artist.
For the last 3 years I have been a full-time RV’er
. Currently based in Scottsdale, AZ in the winter and Santa Fe, NM in the summer, I have the unique opportunity to spend days at a location photographing as my house (RV) is always near me. The variety of my work has also increased as there are so many photo possibilities while on the road.
Even though I started selling my fine art photography at art festivals in 2003 I have actually been selling my work ever since I started in 1990. My initial clients were editors, publishers, and people interested in my wedding and portrait photography. Now my clients are art collectors located worldwide, some of whom have been following me ever since the beginning.
I also continue to be a digital photography pioneer, working with different photo companies as a beta tester, writing tips and photography related stories for my website and others, and pushing the limits of my art to keep my work fresh and continually changing & improving. In addition I continue to teach other photographers with online photo classes
and in-person field workshops
