I was born and raised on the Island of Martha's Vineyard known to be one of the most quaint
and picturesqe places on Cape Cod. Martha's Vineyard is unique for it is blessed with
a community that prides itself on the conservation of the land. For a nature photographer it is
a gold mine in that it holds three major conservation groups being Martha's Vineyard Land Bank
who owns 68 different parcials of land with trails.Sheriffs Meadow Properties, as well
as the Trustee's of Reservations.There was never a time where I found myself without a photographic
opportunity or new location to discover.
I began my serious interest in Photography long ago when my father passed away from a brain tumor,I inherited his 35mm minolta and although I never really did much with it,I took mediocre shots,but I enjoyed using it.I brought it to Fenway Park with me one day and found it just was too old to do the things I wanted to do with it,so I purchased a new camera, an Olympus SP550UZ digital camera
I began to take some really nice pictures at Red Sox games, out of my love for the Red Sox went to Florida and got some very nice pictures of birds while on a Kayak Trip through Jug River Creek and into the Calusa Wildlife Bird Refuge where I was surrounded by Osprey,Eagles,White Egrets,Great Blue Heron and various other birds.Therefore the beginning of my attraction to Nature Photography as well as Sports and as of lately Landscape and High Dynamic Range Shooting.
I since have upgraded my Olympus camera to a Nikon D60 digital SLR and many lenses and filters,currenlty using a Nikon d7100.I spend a great deal of time hiking through the woods and beaches of Cape Cod and the Southern Massachusetts area, with side trips to the Boston Area as well as the Northern
coast of Maine and Acadia National Park,Florida,and the Bahama's.
I have recently released a photo named Union Reflections to the office of Maine Tourism for their upcoming tourist season to use in their travel brochures and their website.Over the past two years I have had many sales of prints and sold out of my line 'An Island Christmas' holiday greeting cards. Currently working as the Official Team Photographer for the Martha's Vineyard Sharks Baseball Team
who are part of the Futures Collegiate Baseball League.Please have a look through my Galleries here at Fine Art America and I hope you enjoy looking at Gods World through my eyes.
