Welcome to my website! I am an award-winning photographer of editorial and fine-art images. My book Historic Hudson Valley: A Photographic Tour, photographed and authored with my son, Anton, was published in July 2013. My goal is to create Fine Art Photography that captures the natural and the historical landscape.

In place of a personal tour, my photographs share with you the places I love and that mean most to me—above all, the Hudson Valley and Catskills where I live, New England which brings me back to my affinity with the coast, and Sweden, where I lived for several years and where I first picked up a “serious” camera.

As a trained historian, one of my great passions is to photograph old buildings. Whether abandoned ruins or still in use—frequently “repurposed” from their original function – they are part of the human story, and my work is to “tell history” through them. Some of my pictures are “environmental” images showing the structure in its natural surroundings; other times I shoot in close to capture the detail, perhaps an architectural feature or the patterns of peeling paint. In all cases, my artistic interpretations respect the unique characteristics of the subject as I avoid any approach that draws attention to technique for its own sake.

My artistic inspirations include the 19th-century Hudson River Painters, especially Thomas Cole and Asher B. Durand—Durand for his meticulous fidelity to his subject and Cole for his use of his art to convey a message. Among photographers who inspire me are Galen Rowell, Robert Glenn Ketchum, and William Neill.

My main camera is a Nikon D7100, with a Canon Powershot G15 as backup. Among my wonderful instructors have been Jim Zuckerman, Rob Sheppard, William Neill, Kerry Drager, and other master photographers. My photography strives to capture the natural and the historical landscapes of the places I love best.

Along with my color images I am developing a collection of “modern vintage” photographs in monochrome. Ansel Adams and Walker Evans, above all, have opened up for me the amazing possibilities of monochrome work.
