aking the mortal, immortal. That statement is the basic belief behind my photography. I am constantly looking for the life in ordinary objects and capturing them for others to be inspired by for a lifetime. My main effort is to bring the unseen into sight, allowing people the opportunity to enlighten their senses through the visual world. My work encapsulates the unique perspective of the land we live. My camera stops at nothing, from abandoned buildings and discarded objects to snowy landscapes and spectacular wildlife. I photograph anything that I believe has a story to tell, even after I am gone. Though based in New York’s southern tier, I have sold my images to every continent of the world. I am self-taught with no formal training and have enjoyed photography since the age of four. My hope is to arouse the soul to the intrigue of the generally “unseen� world. facebook website twitter
