Fisherman releasing a Native Brook Trout

North Shore Photography Lecture Series

Photography has always been a way of sharing experiences. From a baby’s birth to an epic adventure we love to share our experiences with family and friends and sometimes beyond. Go back 30,000 years and that’s what we were doing in a cave around the campfire. We are hard-wired to gather together and tell stories, share knowledge or experiences with our community.

Photography is an ideal way to share those experiences. What better way of explaining to someone the unknown beyond the horizon? What is hidden in the mountains beyond sight?

Part of this talk will show a variety of different assignments from restoring oysters in the Great Bay to working on a controlled burn in the Pine Barrens. Each story showcasing various ecosystems and people working to restore or protect them.

I hope to show a slightly different side of conservation photography, the gritty, hands on side. I also want to highlight the work that can be done at a local level and how impactful and interesting a small local conservation project can be.

I thrive on creating authentic imagery for editorial and commercial clients in unique and difficult locations. Photography from assignments in the sub-zero ravines of New Hampshire’s Mount Washington to the bug infested mangrove islands of the Florida Everglades fly fishing for tarpon have appeared in print nationally. My work has been the cornerstone of large national ad campaigns for Mission Athlete and Voltaic Systems and Sterling Rope. I feel that my photojournalist background works well with commercial projects committed to real storytelling. My freelance career includes working with The New York Times, Boy’s Life Magazine, Fly Fisherman and many others that place a premium on capturing real people, places and the stories they tell.

Mountains, rivers and oceans have always played an important part in my work. My connection and love of the outdoors has lead me to photography & video projects with New Hampshire Public Television on their “Windows to the Wild” television series, The Nature Conservancy and Adventurer Scientists in their work to explore, protect and promote our environment.

“Being close to the mountains, forests and oceans of New Hampshire has given me a constant source of inspiration and ever changing backdrop for my photography”.

I migrated North to the White Mountains of New Hampshire to pursue rock and ice climbing after I graduated with an engineering degree from The University of New Hampshire. Traveling on various climbing adventures with a small point and shoot camera got me hooked on creating better and better photography to tell the stories of each outing. It was during an 11 hour ascent of the Regular Route on Half Dome in Yosemite Valley that photography would overtake my interest in engineering.
