"This is our 4x5 View Camera set up on the rugged North Atlantic Canadian shore.
After helping me lug our LF gear up a cliff and over the rocks, my sister, who assisted me on this session, snapped this shot as I peeled the first Polaroid of the day. The sun burned through the fog and illuminated the lighthouse with incredible light just as we prepared to shoot. It was a keeper!" - Paul

“Even as a photographer, I explore an architectural environment in the manner of both filmmaker and painter, with a sense of the interaction of viewpoints, volumes, light, and forms. I seek variety in textures and curvilinear /rectilinear shape contrasts, and dynamic diagonals -- striving to harmonize the conversion from three-dimensional object to two-dimensional image that is integral to architectural photography. My goal is to create images that document an architectural design in the most flattering manner possible by using perspective and ambient lighting to the best advantage, while going beyond just "recording" architecture to create unique photographic images that are strong enough to stand on their own -- as well-designed and finely-crafted images that long remain in the mind of the viewer.”
