For me, image-making is about being present when the light of the sun (or moon, or another source) bounces off an object in a singularly unique moment of beauty. To have captured that instant to share is at once satisfying and hunger-inducing.
My dad was an oil and water color artist, and his ability to capture light and lighting was a constant source of amazement to me, something I lacked an understanding of. Lo, these many years later, I find myself chasing the perfect tone, color or angle of light, and thinking this is what drew him into his art. The truth is, the search for that beautiful light never ends, and the work is never perfected, but like life, it is about the journey rather than the destination.
For 19 years, my “Light of Day” Desktop Calendar has been a successful business building tool, and sought-after premium. I recently released my first book, “Images Wit Words – The Art & Sigh-ence of Punography”, a collection of visual puns, dad jokes and happy accidents that occur when a photograph and its title come into focus at the same time.
Over the past 6 years, I have had the sublime privilege to chronicle the inspiring exhibition of the USA Patriots (formerly the Wounded Warrior Amputee Softball Team), during their annual visit to NYC and the surrounding areas. These images reflect the team’s message that “life without a limb is limitless”. and can be viewed at: https://wwast.shutterfly.com.
In addition to fine art photography, I am also an avid sports and concert photographer, a current member of the Firefly Gallery Artists, a NSUH Auxiliary Photo Contest Winner, and producer of more than 45 Shutterfly sites. My work has been featured in local restaurants, in Long Island magazine and local newspapers.
My art business has been designated as a "Trusted Art Seller" with The Art Storefronts Organization, which means you can shop with confidence, and know that I stand behind the quality and value of my products.
Thank you for joining me, for however long you decide to stay. I hope that some of these images evoke in you an emotion, or in some way, speak to you, and at the very least, help lighten your day.
