Joshua Tree by Moonlight

2018-12-08T06:39:59+00:00December 3rd, 2018|

Journey Into Night at Ryan Ranch Our recent trip back to Joshua Tree National Park was a great time to explore the night. Thanks to some handy jetlag, I was wide awake at 3:30am and hiked to the ruins of Ryan Ranch. The moonlight was bright enough to make wearing a headlamp unnecessary. Ryan Ranch was built by JD Ryan who ran [...]

A Northeast Vision Of The Pacific Northwest - Part 1 Artistic vision is an interesting thing. It's like your personality, no matter where you go, you take it with you. This became obvious when we headed to the State of Washington recently to check out the great Pacific Northwest. Being comfortable with your vision can help you help adapt to a landscape like [...]

See How To Help Preserve The Pinelands With Your Photography Of all the seasons to be photographing the New Jersey Pinelands, summer can be the most challenging.

Crap + Scrap = Art?

2018-06-22T08:58:55+00:00June 22nd, 2018|

Finding Balance in the Unbalanced Nestled in a corner of the New Jersey Pinelands is a big pile of scrap. Since the 1940's the local family that owns it has been making their living out of buying and selling scrap metal. When I was offered the opportunity to do photography workshop at their very unusual automotive and aircraft graveyard I had to [...]

White Hill Mansion

More Photographs from a quirky piece of American History. Sequels are not just a trend in movies, they happen in photography too. Many photographers revisit locations that attract and continue to interpert them creatively. When I photographed the Abandoned White Hill Mansion months ago, I felt I had finished that project. At least that was until I had the pleasure of leading [...]

An exhibition of my Pinelands Photography It's no secret that I'm proud to be a "Piney".

Back At The Shack For The Super Moon

2018-02-10T12:55:37+00:00February 10th, 2018|

The Judges Shack Revisited New Jersey excels at many things including great places to photograph a moonrise and quirky little gems of history. Those two things came together on a cold winter night along the windswept New Jersey shoreline of Island Beach State Park.  The Judge's Shack, located in the park, is always interesting to photograph. When the January Super Moon rose [...]

Photographing Hawaii’s Big Island

2018-02-18T14:42:42+00:00January 28th, 2018|

For the Love of Lava While there are many reasons to visit Hawaii, for me it was the lava. As someone who often gets a lot of peace out of the quiet, settled natural landscape of New Jersey, it is easy to lose sight of the fact that it was formed thousands of years ago by some powerful and violent forces of [...]

Seeing Differently in Black and White. On our fourth trip to Joshua Tree National Park and I wanted to try something different, but wasn't sure what. So I decided to let the Park show me the way.
