Flying and photography. Both go together so beautifully. Everything takes on a new perspective ... even 10 feet off the ground. As a young boy, I spent hours building and flying model airplanes with my father. Starting at age 11, I cut grass after school so I could afford flying lessons on the weekends. It didn’t take long to realize that I enjoyed the view OUTSIDE the aircraft more than the flying. That’s when the photography bug hit me.
Fast forward 40 years. Combine a great drone and sophisticated camera ... and you get a 400 foot tall mobile tripod! All of my images are shot from the vantage point of the drone. I’m an FAA Commercial rated drone pilot, My previous experience as a manned pilot lends itself well to this discipline.
Imagine composing an important photograph ... while safely flying an aircraft in the national airspace. That’s part of the fun of drone flight.
I’m a former Naval Officer. After graduating from Annapolis in 1982 I served the nation for 8 years. 5 of those years were spent at sea; the remainder teaching at the Naval Academy and Officer Candidate School in Newport, RI.
My aerial images are all about perspective. Common landmarks and cityscapes become uncommon from the air. Most of the images are full of bright natural colors. I’m a sucker for sunrises and sunsets, sailboats, water views ... and of all things .. abandoned tobacco barns. There’s a certain pride and peace attached to these old icons.
My art business has been designated as a "Trusted Art Seller" with The Art Storefronts Organization, which means you can shop with confidence, and know that I stand behind the quality and value of my products.
My love of flight and the view from above inspired me to become a professional aerial photographer.
Every image is shot from the vantage point of the drone. It is a superb camera platform. Today’s technology allows me the same view as the drone in real time. This greatly helps with image composition.
I started flying lessons at age 11 ... and soloed at 14 (before I could drive). After graduating from the Naval Academy in Annapolis in 1982, I served as a Naval Officer for 8 years. Financial planning became the longstanding career. That’s what I do full time today. But I see a promising future career with my drone and camera.
