Through My Eyes – My Journey In Photographs

My Vision as a Photographer

Over the years I have developed a unique vision of the world around me. Through my eyes is a term I coined for how I perceived this world. As a result, once I started exploring the art of photography my vision became clearer and stronger. While observing a scene in front of me, I can often visualize in my mind how it could look as a photograph. My imagination runs wild with the possibilities of how that scene might appear under different lighting conditions, and from different angles.

Photography became a sanctuary, one where I could completely relax and lose myself. Whether I was on a beach waiting for sunrise, or if I was standing on a busy city street in downtown Providence. Photography became a refuge. I found the camera to be an amazing tool, one that allowed me to organize the chaotic world into an organized frame. To bring order to chaos, and to help me find the beauty in the world. In essence, the camera became an extension of my imagination, as my fingers work the buttons transforming my vision to photographs.

“Through My Eyes” – The Book

“Through My Eyes” is a collection of 50 of my favorite photographs, presented in a book format. Each photograph was carefully selected for the book for its importance to my creative vision. Organized into 4 sections dedicated to Seascapes, Landscapes, Night Photography, and Places & Things.

See a sample of the book!

I give each photograph its own page, allowing a maximum size print on a 12″ wide page. I include detailed information on each photograph, including the title, and month and year of creation. Additionally, each photograph contains a short description. Some are funny stories about the photograph, others are more informative of a technical aspect, while others share insight to my thoughts and feelings when I clicked the shutter.
