Industry is built using engineering design. I’ve always appreciated the elegance of design be it in fine art drawings, fashion, or industrial design. Often the clearer the concept the cleaner the design. Long ago the Shakers and Danish designers illustrated that truth.

This image is a sonar mapping image of the floor of the Gulf of Mexico identifying were there are voids in the earth, where there is crude oil and where there is natural gas.

Once again when we turn our attention to nature we often see elegant design and beauty.

Observed Moments

I was walking down fifth avenue and saw this image, paused turned back and asked the person if it would be ok to make an image of their shoes. They looked a little puzzled, but said, ok. After making the image I showed it to them and they said, “wow very cool, I had no idea”.

One of the great satisfactions of photography is being able to make an image of those fleeting moments that we come upon every day.

I’ve always thought of myself as an observer. As such photography became the means by which I could communicate what I saw.

Life observed, a rainy Sunday

While living in New York City I often made a study of the twin towers of the World Trade Center. Living in midtown I would look downtown and see the towers. Moving around the city and coming up from the subway I would look for the towers giving me an immediate sense of where I was in the city. They became an orientation a defining feature of the cityscape.

Over the years I photographed a variety of assignments there; Buckminster Fuller giving a lecture, and ad for Windows on the World, corporate marketing for UPS, etc.  As I moved around the city I would observe the towers making images of them in relationship to the various neighborhoods. Like many New Yorkers I oriented physically and psychologically with the twin towers. That sense remains with me, I think it always will.

clouds, skies,
Saudi Arabia has dunes, Kazakhstan has mountains, Kyoto has gardens, Iceland…well just about everything, Sarasota has skies

This time of year Sarasota has dramatic skies. Beyond the the beauty of nature there is an opportunity to experience in an elemental way the energy of connection between heaven and earth. Sometimes the clouds are dark and foreboding and even then behind the darkness there is light. Taking time to be present and take in the moment can be a teaching. Nature is the source.

Collaborating with executives and business people to create a warm, connected and “real” portrait is often a challenge. They are working under demands on their time and attention and feel the pressures of their position. Being able to engage with them so they feel safe enough to open up and show their personality and be present is often the primary challenge. I am proud of this portrait. He gave to the photo session as much as I did. The portrait was successful because he made his personality and energy available for me to observe.

Until recently my assignments have been on location worldwide. Now I work from my Studio in Sarasota, Florida. Contact me to set up an appointment. I’ll work with you to create a successful portrait.
