Firefly Photography Workshop at Duke Farms

On July 1st, I will be leading a photography workshop at Duke Farms where we will be capturing the luminescence of fireflies.

Each participant will hang their best image in the Duke Gallery for the annual Firefly Festival that attracts over 3000 visitors annually.  I think this will be a great challenge for all participants, a way to create very unique nature art, and also a great excuse to chase glowing insects around at night.

Firefly Festival

A DSLR or camera with manual controls will be necessary, and don’t forget to bring your tripod.

Payment and registration info for the Firefly Photography Workshop at Duke Farms is in the link below.

My Winter Photography Article with Tamron USA

Hi everyone – I have just completed a new Q&A article with some of my thoughts on taking photographs throughout the winter season and detailed information on how I take the pictures and also how to prepare for them.

My Q&A interview was conducted by the very talented author, Jenn Gidman.  The article is an easy read and the entire e-newsletter is very informative and packed with recent photos taken with Tamron USA’s extensive digital lens line-up.  Check it out if you get a chance.

“The Landscapes of New Jersey” at Whippanong Library

My broad photography collection of New Jersey natural landscapes is currently on display at the Whippanong Library in Hanover Township, New Jersey.  I am very proud of these pieces as I feel it is some of my strongest work yet.  “The Landscapes of New Jersey” is my interpretation of the various natural terrains and views to be found throughout the entirety of my home state.  It is my hope that all of the views are both flattering and dramatic while also remaining honest recordings of natural history.

I am excited to provide a walking tour of my exhibit at the Whippanong Library this Thursday, 02/25/2016, at 7PM.  I hope to discuss the ecological value and significance of the New Jersey landscapes encompassed by my exhibit.  There is a great deal of outdoor recreation to be found in this state if we seek it out.  I hope to encourage attendees to do just that.  The tour and exhibit are free and open to the public.

I am excited and honored to be one of the judges for the Conserve Wildlife Foundation of New Jersey’s 2016 wildlife photography exhibit.  As a longtime nature artist, I find it very important to support the local nonprofits and conservation groups that protect New Jersey’s natural resources.

I am quite sure that many inspirational wildlife images will be in the running.  Picking a winner is going to a challenge.
