"Pa-Hay-Okey ", the title of this image means "River of grass" in the Native American language in the Everglades of southern Florida. The Everglades is one of my favorite nature subjects to photograph. This image shows the sawgrass typical of the area, springing up from the flowing waters of the Everglades. Below is an aerial view I took from a helicopter of a remote part of the Everglades. I have been focusing my photography on scenes of the Everglades and other subjects of natural beauty, particularly in Florida, to focus attention on its fragile, ever-changing beauty and the important role we humans play in the formula. I try to give my photographs a multi-faceted beauty that inspires participation in the ecological movement to save these preciously beautiful natural resources.

I have been involved with high-resolution digital photography and digital manipulation for many years. My prints combine multiple image files taken at very high resolution. They are used to create ultra-sharp photographs for mural-sized prints. My “Odyssey”, “Juxtapose”, and “Horizon” portfolio art series use this personally developed post-production technique to achieve a unique look for my printed photographic art.
I have been a commercial photographer in New York City advertising world for over twenty years where and photographed for most major ad agencies taking photographs for companies such as L’Oréal, Revlon, Clairol, and many others. For the past five years, I have lived and worked in Boca Raton, Florida where I fell in love with the Florida landscapes of the Everglades, the ocean, and weather phenomena as the main subjects of my art photography.
I call my technique “Image Architecture” where my approach to constructing the image is to first break apart a scene into component parts by taking many photographs of the scene from myriad angles – from the air, from the land, at different times of day, etc. -- then use those parts as the building blocks for reconstructing a new scene with minimalist, geometric, and architectural overtones. I have been focusing my photography on scenes of the Everglades and other subjects of natural beauty, particularly in Florida, to focus attention on its fragile, ever-changing beauty and the important role we humans play in the formula. I try to give my photographs a multi-faceted beauty that inspires participation in the ecological movement to save these preciously beautiful natural resources.
