GALLERY Archaeology • the World • Photography Lessons
Telling the Story: Above and beyond anything else, a good photograph will tell a story. Stories are all around us. As a photographer, my job is to find the story and pull it out of the rest of the noise around it, and allow it to tell itself.
Traveling around the world to take pictures combines 3 of my favorite things: Traveling, Photography and Family time. Added to this is the unique pleasure of traveling with some of the greatest historical minds in our world today: the Scientists from the Cotsen Institute of Archaeology at UCLA. I am often asked what I like best to photograph. And although I am known to click pretty much everything, my favorite things have to do with the ability to preserve ancient history with my camera. This includes the Queen’s Chamber in the Great Pyramid on the Giza Plateau in Egypt, the un-earthing of the Terra Cotta Warriors in Xian, China, the Birthplace of the Ancient Inca in the Bolivian Andes, the giant and mysterious Moai Statues on Easter Island, and Rock Art from the Tarahumara people in Northern Mexico. Before I leave this planet, I hope to leave few stones unturned (no pun intended).
I shoot with little or no artificial lighting (caves are a major exception), and travel with very little equipment. 2013 will take me to some really cools caves in Belize to shoot some active excavations (dig sites) to assist in the documenting of the most current theories behind the Fall of the Mayan Culture, then to Guatemala to witness one of the great archaeological sites in the world: Tikal.
I am available for travel to capture the quality of images that you need for Educational purposes, Travel purposes or Business/Marketing needs. Please visit my Photography ‘Rates’ page, then call me directly at 585-851-8253.
