Fall in Vermont & Maine

It is about that time when we all start to think about and get excited about photographing in the fall.

A Feather in Indian River

Sometimes the simplest subjects are the most wonderful and most beautiful to photograph.

Earlier this summer I did a presentation in New York City at the Optic 15 photo conference sponsored by B&H Photo. The topic of my talk was Photography for the Greater Good- making a difference. I tried to illustrate ways that we all can use our photography to help image poor non-profit organizations further their […]
