bear ridge speedway  

self -May 2021

There is bent metal and banged up knucles.  There is dirt and oil and the smell of exhaust.  Everywhere is the deafaning rumble of engines that care not for efficency or longevity, only performance.  Filtering through the noise and chaos is the announcer calling cars to the line over the PA system.  Then there are the drivers... they are old, seasoned, steely eyed and they are fresh faced, lanky.  Running through the heart of this place is the family - the brothers and sisters, mothers, fathers, uncles and cousins that come out in support every weekend.  They keep the cars running, constantly tweeking and fixing, trying to find that little bit of mechanical magic that might offer an advantage.  They keep the drivers running through their support and their simple presence.  






breeders cup 2020 

self - Nov. 2020

I was hired by a television production company as part of their tech crew.  We built the camera and video infrastructure to broadcast the 2020 Breeders Cup for NBC.  It was a little different than years past as the only spectators allowed were the owners and their guests.  These images capture the people I worked with, the place itstelf and moments from the event.

self - Nov. 2020

Road trip from Lexington, KY home to the Adirondacks of NY.  November 8-12, 2020.  I was influenced by the recent election and used the current state of affairs to guide my view.







ct office park  

self -Aug. 2020

I can’t pass on the opportunity to shoot an office park.  Their structure, their architectural artiface and the way they try to incorporate something natural to balance it, these are the elements that attract me.  







arizona  

self -Jan. 2020

With the northteast deep in the depths of a cold and grey winter, I was lucky enough to get a gig in Arizona.  I extended my stay and spent a day wandering the streets of Tempe.  These images represent an exploration of light, color and form.  The simple act of seeing and recording.  It felt good to be in the sunshine with skin exposed, to experience and capture the beauty of winter light, but in somplace warm.
