about

profile.jpg

I have been photographing since I received my first camera as a teenager. Following my move to New Hampshire, with the evolution of digital photography, and following retirement, my involvement with photographic art and with the artist community has grown significantly. I am currently President of the New Hampshire Society of Photographic Artists. I am also a juried member of the New Hampshire Art Association and was previously on its board. I am a contributing photographer to Portsmouth Magazine, and have been published in other magazines and newspapers.

My work is represented in the permanent collections of Optima Bank and Trust and the Exeter, NH Chamber of Commerce. My photographs are on display in the New Hampshire and Washington, DC offices of U.S. Congressman Chris Pappas. They were also exhibited in Senator Jean Shaheen’s “Experience New Hampshire” exhibits in Washington, DC.

My artistic interests include landscapes, cityscapes, architecture and interiors of old, historic buildings. I also enjoy creating environmental portraits, capturing my subjects in a setting and pose which reflect their personality and lifestyle.

To give back to the community, I volunteer at local events such as TEDx Portsmouth and the New Hampshire Film Festival, and provide photographic services for a number of non-profits.

I have studied photography at the International Center for Photography and The New School, both in New York City, and the New Hampshire Institute of Art in Manchester, NH.

My services include photography sessions for small businesses, families, and high school seniors. My approach is to provide environmental portraits of individuals and/or small groups. I also offer commissioned work. In addition, I provide custom one-on-one and small group tutoring covering camera basics, composition, and basic digital post-processing.
