About Me & My Prints
What about me? What can I say?
Well I'm an old cowhand...Not! But I live in the hills of western Massachusetts and we had a draft pony and a donkey for 8 years but no cows. I live with my wife Cynthia (mosaic artist extraordinary, check out her web site (bigbangmosaics.com) We have two children Rory, age 23, and Kiera age 26, and both live in Boston, Of course the dogs, Luna on the left and Cael on the right, but sad to say both have passed on! To the right is a image from 2005. I like the young Einstein look on me thanks to a bit of wind. And the image below that is from 2015 in Boston on the big chair.
I have been a pre-school teacher, musician, builder, ran a sawmill, owned a restaurant and for the last 27 years, a professional photographer. Working in documentary, architectural, and landscape photography. In 1991 while biking with my wife on a two month bike trip of Ireland and Britain I started photographing the landscape, villages and people of the area. This led to me taking the images I do now of the landscape of Ireland and Britain. I try and get over every year or so and spend at least three to four weeks photographing.
My work consists of color landscape photographs of Scotland ,England and Ireland. All images are taken with a 4x5 view camera or a 6x7 rangefinder camera on a tripod using Fuji and Kodak color negative or Fujichrome film. I use a handheld light meter to insure that the exposures are right on. The images are then printed by me on Fuji Crystal Archive photographic paper which is tested to last 100 years. Most of my images are hand printed but all the new film images since 2007 are scanned and printed digitally. In 2015 I started to use a Nikon digital DXcamera and joined the modern world. All images come in beautiful handmade cherry frames. The print sizes are from 11x14 to 20x24 and prices range from $75.00 to $525.00.
