My particular style of photography is probably best described as face-to-face and eye-to-eye portraitures of native New England wildlife. What motivates this choice of a visual perspective, I think, comes from many of my own personal encounters outdoors. It is always an exhilarating experience for me when I can observe a wild animal going about its everyday existence so wonderously adapted to the ancient environment in which it lives. On those even rarer occasions when close eye-to-eye contact is made, there is the sense that we are similar in the most fundamental of ways. These are the kinds of moments that usually stir a deeper feeling of connection with the natural world along with a supreme admiration for the animal, and this is the emotion that I hope to convey to the viewer with my images.
