I spent the last 6 years working as a location scout in and around NYC. As fun as it was it turned photography, which had been a creative outlet for me since childhood, into a monotonous day job. Having returned to the valley (I'm a native) I've rediscovered how much I love crawling around the woods and wandering aimlessly with a camera.
Lately I've been concentrating on site specific series. I pick a place, usually in the woods, and shoot everything that catches my eye. I rarely take wide shots of scenic vistas or straight on closeups of pretty flowers. I lean more towards the obscure and often abstract. When asked, i generally refer to my subject matter as "Plants and Rocks and Shiny Things." I almost never use a tripod, and I shoot on digital as if it were 35mm with minimal if any processing with almost never anything beyond the occasional cropping.
Describe your organization or gallery
I still work as a location scout and I am actively trying to bring productions out to Western Mass. If you are interested in having your home/business/property scouted please don't hesitate to contact me. I am always looking for every type of property imaginable from a suburban house to a dairy farm, to restaurants, and everything else the area has to offer.
I am also available on commission to shoot your property from a more artistic perspective. Each series is individualized based on your preferences. Anything from a collage of a few shots to a coffee table book to show your guests. You can see from my work that I have a unique perspective on nature and the less glamorous subject matter. I'd rather shoot a farm house than a fancy loft in Soho any day of the week.
