I've been thinking about producing a new photobook for a few months now. I've been very happy with some of the work produced this summer and my new seascapes, and I really wanted to incorporate them into an approachable medium before the year was out. The answer: a softcover photobook offering over 20 pages of wonderful photography in an non-intimidating and nicely portable 7x7" medium. I put together a collection of my favoriate images, about 75% from this year alone, and Oceanview
was born! I also wanted to incorporate some quotes I've found throughout the years that have deeply inspired me or forced a deeper reflection upon myself, my work and my subject matter. I've included quotes from notable photographers and minds such as E.E. Cummings, Dorothea Lange, and even John F. Kennedy.
I wanted to keep the book small and approachable, starting with a 7x7" softcover reasonably priced at $23.36 ($25 after RI sales tax for any of you here in state!). But I have also made hardcover versions available for $37.38, and $42.06 for the nice linen cover dust jacket version. My plans are to expand this book further, tacking on pages and new work, and perhaps producing a very nice 12x12" hardcover edition in the upcoming years. If you're interested in a copy of the book, you can directly order your copy with choice of softcover, hardcover, or dust jacket hardcover through my Blurb Bookstore
! I will also be keeping softcover inventory available through me at my Etsy Shop

I had been eagerly awaiting this winter season. Here in New England, the winter months can be rather frigid, but for those of us who don’t mind the exhaustive work of climbing into 6 mil wetsuits or ice-cream-headache cold waters, it’s the eagerly anticipated winter months that bring the biggest swells. We had snow before the New Year and water temps quickly started approaching 40°F. But in typical fashion, as soon as the long awaited winter months arrived, I was craving a break from the cold gray in favor of a warm water reprieve.
I've been wanting to shoot more portraits lately, but in combination with the surf community that I've been so involved with the past year. My good friend, Kevin Tanner, behind Soudnings Surf Co creates some gorgeous handcrafted boards. He does all his own shaping, resin work, and glassing, and I wanted to photograph some beautiful boards to highlight his craftsmanship as well as portraits of my friends who ride them. I decided to do board portraits.
A lot of us enjoy the warm weather, but a select few of us still enjoy (or perhaps tolerate) the cold weather. And nothing quite says winter like a fresh snowfall! On the rare occasion Rhode Island experiences more than one inch of snow while there's swell in the water, you can find a select few of dedicated riders on the shore eager to have a snow session.
