My photography is driven by a sense of history.
I grew up in Lowell, Massachusetts, along the Merrimack River, birthplace of the Industrial Revolution in America.
Through my childhood and early adulthood I watched the old textile mills that helped build the city morph from the industrial era dinosaurs that they were, to apartments, condos, retail and office space. In some cases, they were simply razed to make way for more modern buildings or open spaces. Sadly, I watched it happen without picking up a camera.
Today I live just up the river, outside of Lowell’s sister City, Lawrence, another key player in the Industrial Revolution. Many of Lawrence’s mill buildings remain virtually changed since they were built. Today they serve as my photographic playground.
It is part urban exploration photography and part documentary photography. I shoot the mills as they are today so we can remember what they were like tomorrow.
Of course, its not all I shoot. I enjoy shooting other old and forgotten buildings, landscapes, cityscapes architecture and nature. I’ve even been known to to photograph people, if my arm is twisted enough.
I am a devotee of High Dynamic Range (HDR) Photography, a process expands the dynamic range of light to produce an image truer to the eye than a single exposure can capture.

On a personal note, I’ve been happily married for over 25 years to my wife, Jean. We live in Methuen, Massachusetts with our three sons and two very annoying hybrid dogs.
