"This is our 4x5 View Camera set up on the rugged North Atlantic
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

Paul (r) and his sister, Anne-Marie
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.”
