About This Blog

My name is Steve and I live in Upstate, NY. This blog was created as a way to share my photographs and the reasons behind why I take them and the equipment I use.

My inspiration for taking (or making) photos is to freeze a particular moment no matter how great or how simple it may be. I am mostly inspired by the natural world. Maybe it is a sunset, a serene creek off the beaten path or a heron fishing on a quiet lake at sunrise. Sometimes it is nothing in particular but just the way the light hits it. Light is everything in photography. An interesting subject can be made boring in the wrong light and sometimes the mundane can be made anything but in just the right light.

I enjoy exploring and photographing areas that I am familiar with that seem to get passed by.

If you have a particular area or setting in mind, and you think I may benefit from the chance to shoot some photos there, please drop me a line and let me know. I am always looking for new and interesting places to shoot especially in the Capital District.
