Many of the photos below have inspired poems. Capturing beauty unaware, whether it be a person, a stream, or a bloom that has no concept of how they move us, is a thrill. I prefer the sun to light up the eyes of a portrait; to glisten on a scrumptious food shot; to diffuse the perfect landscape. Specializing in capturing the magic of Upstate New York along with documenting every day life in the Catskills, my mission is to be true to the stories around me.
