I started taking photographs in college and purchased my first 35 mm film camera, a Pentax with a starter lens that I’ve long forgotten it’s optical specifications.  Since that first camera, I’ve upgraded a few times including the purchase of my first DSLR a Nikon D80 and eventually my current camera a full-frame DSLR (Nikon D750).  Photography has grown into a serious hobby coupled with my love for being outdoors.  I enjoy the outdoors and consider my self an outdoor enthusiast that enjoys a full range of outdoor activities, including being a serious recreational cyclist enjoying both road and mountain biking.  I enjoy traveling and exploring new places, especially historical places and inspiring National Parks and Monuments.  Lately, my travels and photography have included more urban subjects.  My photos mainly focus on outdoor landscapes and travel.  I live full time in Connecticut and love the beauty in my home state as well as the other surrounding New England States, taking plenty of photographs that capture the local treasures.  I’m also fortunate to live part-time in Arizona that provides great contrast to my New England photos and is a significant portion of my photos.  I hope you enjoy my pictures that showcase the beauty that surrounds us in this world. Please feel free to share with others who would appreciate my photographs.
