ALL ROADS LEAD TO ROME – NOT IF YOU’RE ATT

One of the downsides of being in business for 20+ years is all the old 'stuff' that gathers and that you drag along gathering dust. Not just the mysterious cables to long junked technology, but the other less tangible junk. URL's that sit parked, old land lines, subscriptions to 'things' that get automatically renewed every [...]

Bringing meaning to photography every single day

Thoreau didn't have a camera, but he says in perfectly. I try and bring meaning to every photograph I take, every single day. My studio used to be in Concord Massachusetts and I lived in Wayland Ma. Every morning my drive to work was through the spectacular Walden Park, around Walden Pond and passing by [...]
