My passion for photography germinated from family vacations around the United States as a child. My family and I went on sensational adventures in search of birds and wildlife throughout New Jersey, Maine, southern Texas, extreme southeastern Arizona, the Everglades of Florida, and more. On all of our family vacations, my Mother photographed wildflowers creeping on abandoned farmsteads, the rocky coasts of Maine, and anything else that captured her eye. It was along these trips where I first experimented with photography by documenting observed bird species or the rich landscapes around us using an old Vivitar 35mm SLR (Single Lens Reflex) film camera.

Since the heady days of 35mm film, I now rely on my Nikon D40 Digital SLR to continue on with my family’s tradition of capturing the landscapes and wildlife of the places I visit. Additionally, I have broadened my subjects to include American folklife and historic structures, as well as battle re-enactments, weather phenomenon, and light painting. A large portion of my work is what is called HDR (High Dynamic Range) photography. Multiple images of a subject are taken at varying exposure levels ranging from light to dark. These photos are then merged or tonemapped in special computer software. HDR provides a much more sizable tonal range in a single photograph. When processed carefully, these HDR images allow for a more natural representation of what the human eye sees, as well as permitting a higher level of detail in the photograph.

#JerseyStrong
#UnionBeach, #NJ

By now, this house is famous. I have been holding off posting this shot for a while now. I feel this home represents the state of the NJ coast. Bruised, battered, but deeply rooted and holding strong. I wish the best for everyone effected by this historical weather event. I too am between homes due to the storm, posting this picture from my iPhone without wifi. Lets hold in our thoughts those who may be less fortunate this holiday season. 

This 150 year old house was demolished just a couple days after this photo was taken. I’m happy I was able to preserve this powerful scene forever.
