"A Familiar Place" Portraits 

Fall 2023 Update: 

Regretfully I did not have the opportunity to create many new photographs for this project during the 2023 Summer. A combination of prior commitments, travel chaos, record heatwaves and the overall uneasiness of the world made planning and booking shoots a challenge. 

I did get to work with Cayden Steele which was awesome. See the set of photographs from our session here. 

I hope to continue this project in the future. I still want to make photographs of actors, musicians, athletes and other people who pursue a creative endeavor. 

Please reach out anytime of year if you are interested. 

A Familiar Place

My fine art portraiture work started in the spring of 2016 with my first sessions booked in the Boston area. After teaching full time for three years, I became dismayed to see that many young people spend the majority of their free time on a digital device. 

The photographs in this collection are meant to be a contradiction of today's digital world and the culture of immediacy that has evolved around it. Working in natural, outdoor locations, the portraits are intended to be more of a documentary of the everyday life of young people connecting with nature, sports, and other outdoor activities. The photographs are all created using medium format black and white film. 

I am also very interested in documenting family bonds and the bonds of friendship.  I have photographed siblings, best friends, and other people who feel they share a special bond.

The events of the last few years have forced many of us to redefine our priorities. Now more than ever, I would like to photograph what truly matters: family, friends and the everyday good things that we can no longer take for granted. 

Since 2016, I have created work for this project in Colorado, Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New York and Rhode Island.
