What makes photography a strange invention is that its primary raw materials are light and time. — John Berger

I’ve always been surrounded by beautiful scenery growing up in the Finger Lakes Region, which lead me to pick up a camera and document the area I was living in. I caught the photography bug at a very young age and the rest is history. I’m a self taught photographer with a primary focus of landscape photography but I also offer photography sessions for the following:

  • Portrait Sessions - couples, engagements, family, senior portraits, children, pets.
  • Automotive - showcase, for sale, events / car meets.
  • Product photography
  • Realty

“Landscape photography is the supreme test of the photographer – and often the supreme disappointment.” – Ansel Adams


“What my portraits are made of? 10% showing the reality, 90% showing my philosophy.” ― Scuro Chiaro


I grew up around cars. Working on them, driving them, dreaming about them. My obsession regularly spills over into my photography.
