From an early morning sunrise at Bryce Canyon to the late afternoon glow in a small fishing village in Nova Scotia, I create images that celebrate the spirit and beauty of the American Landscape, and like my father before me, photography is my passion and my career. In the world of solidity and structure, the silence of the desert, the play of light and shadow, and the forces of wind and water resound with images that are stirring, touching, and profound – These are the places that occupy a special spot in my imagination. Transcending conventional clichés of location, each photograph is more than a record of natural beauty. Within the image, a feeling of vanishing moments when light, tide, and time hold one’s being in their grip and solicits a quiet and introspective moment that reflects the solitude of the work that I’ve done over the years.

For over 30 years I used 4×5 and 21/4 cameras in my photography. Today, I now use the Nikon D850 for the majority of my work, but I still carry a Hasselblad CM in my backpack. Originally from South Philly, for the last 16 years, I have enjoyed living in the rolling hills of southern Chester County with my wife Karen and my German Shorthair Pointer, Briscoe, in the small town of Oxford, Pennsylvania.
