About the Artist
It began when I was about 5 years old.  My father had a Leica M3 rangefinder camera, and I was fascinated with how photography captured a snapshot of life.  My father would set up the Leica on a tripod with a Summicron telephoto lens, and we would take picture of birds in our backyard.  With a rangefinder, I got to learn about light, aperture, shutter and film speed.  And, of course, we always had the latest copy of National Geographic as a reference.

When I was in high school, I learned how to develop film and make prints in a darkroom.  In my sophomore year I had the unique opportunity to spend two weeks at Syracuse University’s renowned Newhouse School of Communications learning advanced photographic and darkroom techniques.

As an adult, photography has become a major hobby.  It’s a way to interact with nature.  The East End is an incredible photographic resource that I have come to love.  In addition, I enjoy taking a vacation in the winter and photographing in the Florida Everglades, another incredible location for anyone devoted to nature photography.

While I will always love the simplicity and amazing sharpness of my Leica M3, today I shoot with a Nikon D850 and a series of Nikkor long lenses, especially the 200-400mm f4 and the newer 200-500mm telephoto.  But in the end, it still is all about subject, light and technique.
