Spent a diverse 16 years engaged in freelance design and artistic pursuit alongside my "day job" as Graphics Designer - creating print and web designs. Establishing corporate identity (I know, yawn - I tried to make it compelling). Then initiated unique use of photos and graphics to be used for album / cd art, posters, catalogs, product fliers, tourist handouts, product packaging, website layouts, logos, corporate themes, to name a few. Now, time to get back to what truly stirs inside - art, expression, meaning - edgy creativity! Looking to explore photography again (back to my roots) and make thought provoking work, a moment in time - if not a simple, but appealing image!
Having come from a long line of artists, a family of creative thinkers and artistic minded individuals. Born in Massachusetts and growing up along the coastline, I became fascinated with the mysteries and beauty of the Atlantic - fuel for a young imagination. As a boy, camera or sketchpad and pencils in hand, I would wander out on the rocks, gaze at the sea, and doodle, experiment, shoot my Vivitar 110 or write - found beauty in coastlines, story lines, object lines, social lines and, to be trite; tan lines. This region of Massachusetts is known for the concentration of diverse artists and photographers - not just seascapes. I often wandered the galleries and studios of the Cape Ann area; in awe and knowing I wished to create....
I did sharpen innate design skills at schools in Connecticut, Massachusetts, and New York. Studying design and computer science, degrees with honors in Computer Science, Computer Information Systems and an A.A.S in Graphics Design, winning the DUE Award for Academic Excellence. Then I finally re-entered the world of photography with my D200 and a couple of SB-600s just back in early '07. Finally I'm happily merging the diversity of graphic design with the beauty of a capture through photography.
Once a right handed left-brain science student, now a left handed right-brain graphics guy with a camera. Welcoming comments, advice, critiques and criticism as I hope to learn from all of the extraordinary photographers here!
