Notch Light

I usually have more fun wandering than overly planning for shoots, and when magical light happens it’s something really special and makes for moments that I forever treasure. This one was just a magnificent scene as a summertime storm rolled through Pinkham Notch with blasting afternoon sunlight making for a silhouetted evergreen landscape within one of New England’s finest alpine areas. It’s a print I will always love.

Fresh Start

2020 has probably been the strangest and craziest feeling year that most of us have ever lived through. It’s scary, uncertain, dangerous, and has a sense of unknowingness that is almost impossible to draw parallels to. As much as I want to return to the hustle/bustle of doing hundreds of creative shoots a year like usual, it’s instead been a lot more reflecting and refreshing past work which has been fun in it’s own way.

In giving this blog space a refresh I hope to make it a place where I can talk and reflect upon singular images and offer some storytelling and thoughts on the processes I go through in finding and creating images with an impact.

Metaphorically the moment feels like an unpredictable storm, one in which we know will pass over eventually but it’s hard to know when. I have great hope that like this picture below, someday the current storm will clean and we will find sunny days ahead.
