Not many people know that I photograph swim teams. It takes me back to my junior high school years when I attempted to be a fast breaststroker at the Y on 14th Street, Manhattan. This shot was something of an accident. My strobe didn’t fire and instead of a frozen sports moment I got this impressionistic shot.

New Hampshire sunset

Autumn sunset with peak color on a lake in New Ipswich, NH, USA

In spite of the drought that has dried up New England since the summer, the fall color has turned out to be surprisingly good. Here’s a shot that uses 3 different exposures to capture the wide dynamic range of this scene. I use Photomatix Pro to create fine HDR images.

This photograph is available as a fine art print or, licensed from commercial use.

Parker River Refuge, Plum Island, outgoing tide

The outgoing tide reflects the amber hues of the setting sun at Parker River Wildlife Refuge in Newbury, MA. I love the abstract nature of this image and how it seems to mimic an Alaskan glacier. The sky above was amber-hued, the sand coarse and reflective.

In late August I visited S.E. Shires, Co. to photograph the crafting of custom trumpets and trombones. This is the third installment of my series on musical instrument makers in New England. The Shires plant in Hopedale, MA has been making brass instruments for devoted horn players since 1995. Most of the men and women who work here are musicians too. They’re using computer guided cutting tools and machines, early 20th century apparatus,  lots of small and large welders, and plenty of hands-on work to make each perfect instrument.
