Photography is both art and a tool. It has the ability to inspire and educate, to communicate in ways that transcend the limitations of language, age, race, or class. Photographs can show people the world around them through new eyes, creating an awareness of our social and physical environment and fostering a connection with nature. It is through photography that we can teach others about environmental issues, social injustices, and the incredible, diverse beauty of our planet; this is a tool that can help to develop responsible and informed world citizens who act as stewards for nature and humanity. My goal is not to simply create stunning photographs, but to give them a voice and a purpose, to make them work towards a better planet, and to make sure the stories they tell are heard.

My work is now being represented by the stock agency Tandem Stills + Motion
. While currently only a few of my images are catalogged on the agency's website, I hope to add more to the collection over time.
The Power of Place is now available for download on Vimeo or purchase on DVD. We have done two screenings of the film so far (in Concord and Portsmouth) and both venues sold out for the show!

The long awaited release of The Power of Place is near! Jerry Monkman and I began working on this documentary in 2013, with hopes of releasing the film later that year. Due to several unforseen setbacks, production was greatly delayed but I'm happy to say we are ready to show it to the world! The Power of Place is a documentary about the Northern Pass, a proposed power line project that would cut across 180 miles of New Hampshire's iconic and beautiful landscape. As avid outdoor enthusiasts and New Hampshire transplants who love the Granite State, we were drawn to this controversial issue and are very happy to share what we learned about it after years of research and hard work filming and capturing this story. Jerry has finalized a premiere date and location, which will be announced shortly once we work out a few final details for a great first showing. Stay tuned...
