Journal: New England Forestry Foundation - July 2011-April 2012

During my final year of grad school, I snagged a paid internship with the New England Forestry Foundation as a photographer. I originally was given a six month contract to photograph their forests and document the work that they do, but after a less than stellar fall foliage season, my contract was extended to allow me more time to capture images of nature in its beauty throughout the seasons. I spent a total of ten months with NEFF, photographing forests, landholdings, forestry management practices, active harvest sites, and wood products on NEFF owned and managed properties throughout New England. During that time I also visited and photographed satellite locations like the wood processing plant at Cersosimo Lumber in Brattleboro, VT, the workshop and showroom at Bensonwood, makers of sustainable and custom timber frame homes, in Walpole, NH, and the New England Wood Pellet factory in Jaffrey, NH to illustrate a more complete story of sustainable forestry and how wood products are used.
