There were so many days full of killer waves during September's storm season off Rhode Island's south coast, but this particular day was my favorite. While there may have been bigger swells on other days, none compared to the clean waves and gorgeous golden hour light of Sept. 13, 2017.Read More
Decent swells, great weather and a calamari festival brought out big crowds to Narragansett Pier on Saturday, including dozens of surfers at the Town Beach.Read More
A strong summer swell kicked up some decent surf Wednesday, Aug. 30, 2017, in Narragansett, R.I., so grabbed my gear and headed to one of the local surf spots to capture the action.Read More
Winter Storm Stella was a dud from a snow perspective, but she brought with her a massive surge of double-overhead waves that sent barrel after barrel breaking off Monahan's Dock in Narragansett Bay, Rhode Island. At least two dozen surfers were in the water at any given time despite frigid temperatures that struggled to reach 20 degrees. One surfer left the water with ice covering his beard, but that didn't stop him from catching a few sweet rides.

A half-dozen local surfers took advantage of some unseasonably warm temperatures and overhead winter swells last week, catching barrels off Monahan's Dock in the Narragansett Pier, R.I.Read More
When I first heard news about last year's Supermoon, I knew immediately the shot I wanted to make of it. I hoped to capture the massive moon rising behind Point Judith Light in Narragansett, Rhode Island.Read More
With Tropical Storm Hermine sending a swell to the Rhode Island coast, I got out this morning and hit up some surf spots to shoot the locals while the were shooting the curl.Read More
Mind-altering drugs have inspired many artists and visionaries - from H.R. Giger to Steve Jobs. For these creative talents, getting high was all about altering one's perspective to open his or her mind. For me, getting high has nothing at all to do with drugs (I've never done them), but rather my new addiction to drone photography.Read More
The coyote crouches, tensing, waiting. Its fur ripples as the sinewy muscles prepare to fire, launching the canine 15 feet across the small creek. I square up the coyote in my viewfinder, my own muscles also tensed, ready to fire the shutter and capture the moment the coyote leaps across the abyss (OK, it was more of a small dropoff).Read More
Photographers are accustomed to aiming for the sweet spot of the "Golden Hour" - the hour after sunrise or the hour before sunset - to make their best photos. The light is gorgeous and makes your subjects pop.
And while shooting under ideal conditions can often lead to the best photographs, it's important to remember never to pass up an opportunity, even if the conditions aren't exactly favorable.Read More
The surf was up this weekend in Narragansett, R.I., and I knew there would be a good opportunity to get some action shots of the local wave riders. I headed out to an easily accessible surf spot with one of the better breaks in the area hoping to get some nice shots in the Golden Hour.Read More
Serenity. Silence. Peace. Isolation. Any or all of these words could describe this image of a steel canoe as it sits apparently motionless on the glassy waters of a salt pond. The word one chooses depends, of course, upon the viewer's perspective.Read More
The U.S.S. Saratoga is towed out of Narragansett Bay past the Point Judith Lighthouse as it begins its journey toward Texas, where it will be scrapped.Read More
The wide eyes of a toddler or the cracked, craggy skin of an old fisherman can both tell a story about the person being captured in a portrait. Letting the subject's personality emerge through the image is essential to portrait photography, but it also applies to other disciplines of photography, such as nature, landscape and street photography.Read More
When I go out shooting photographs, I try to have a shot in mind that I want to create before I leave the house. It helps give me focus and make the most efficient use of my time. That said, one of the first lessons I learned about photography way back in the 6th grade was to keep your eyes open and "work the scene."Read More
Poor weather can make it difficult to capture an image, but it can also create just the right conditions to get a great shot.Read More
