Artist's  Bio 

 

    Photography is my life’s experience of what my eyes and mind see for that moment.  It is an expression of my connection with the beauty of the natural world.  Understanding nature via my visual contexts of color, shapes, patterns played out in the light and shadows of my prints.  My photography intends to capture objects as I see them, in the hope of portraying a moment of time in nature's ever changing light of each season.

       Artist’s Statement 

      Drawn from my life and the beauty my eyes and mind see, my photography is an expression of my connection to the natural world. Through my lens, I gain an understanding of nature’s ever-changing seasons by capturing the colors, shapes and patterns that play out in the light and shadows.

      Where some see places and things—light, form, and movement are what stimulate me. Through photographic expression of landscapes and birds, I can communicate the essence of what I see.

      Once a promising location has been identified, I then determine optimal conditions, returning repeatedly to the same location just as a gardener tends to his crops or a lobsterman checks his traps. I enjoy photographing just before dawn, catching the unique quality of the day’s first break or at sunset for that last fleeting moment of light. I always wait until I see something new revealed.

      Nature is revealed to me in rich tapestries of shapes, textures and patterns, like migrating birds on their passage, a story unfolds across the horizon.

      The camera allows me to focus, like a painter, on the strategic placement of objects and shades of light. My goal is to have the final print closely match what I saw through the lens. That’s why images are seldom manipulated other than minor adjustments made for contrast or light levels.

      From a fine art photographer’s point of view, the final image is my ultimate statement. It is my record, for that fraction of a second when the camera’s shutter is open and light flows freely, establishing a connection between my point of view, and you, the viewer.

      Rob and his wife Roz, a pottery instructor, live in Marblehead, with their two dachshunds and numerous birdfeeders throughout the backyard.
