Snowvember Portrait

Here I am on top of the giant snow pile created by over 10,000 dump truck loads of snow following the monstrous “Snowvember” storm of November 2014 in Buffalo.

My favorite pictures of myself are the ones photography friends have taken of me out and about with my camera.

Dutchess County Fair

About a year ago, I took a photo workshop at The Center for Photography at Woodstock with Alex Webb & Rebecca Norris Webb, and I never got around to posting about it until now.  The two-day hands-on workshop was about photographing the world around you in a direct and spontaneous way. Above all, it was about seeing, emphasizing the photojournalistic and documentary traditions, and developing your own unique vision. Several of us photographed at the Dutchess County Fair as part of the workshop.  We did an editing project where we were instructed to organize our favorite shots into an “A” group, and the close seconds into a “B” group.  Here are my A group results.

Some Early Work

I was invited to give a talk about my photography in Lancaster, UK at the end of the Month.  Preparation got me thinking about some examples of my early work.  These three were all shot in Mexico for a project entitled Living on the Edge, 1998 which is a compare and contrast of both sides of the US / Mexico border.  I’ll update this post with more info soon.
