I like to think of myself as a story teller.  Years ago when I first started taking photographs, my focus was on taking a ‘pretty picture’.  After years of practice and study, my focus now is on ‘composition, light and mood’.  I like to think that my images tell a story or inspire an emotion.  A rendition of a lighthouse on a foggy day might evoke a feeling of solitude.  A close-up of an intricate flower might evoke an appreciation of the wonder and beauty of nature.  

My photo prints are either a realistic representation of the original or manipulated into a composite or even an abstract.  My portfolio includes lighthouses, seascapes, still life images and flowers and these are presented on fine art paper or canvas.  What better place to capture the beauty around me than the dramatic coast of Maine.
