I am a travel and landscape photographer from Scottsdale, Arizona who attempts to capture the innate beauty of a country through portraiture, architecture, and its landscapes. I am drawn to areas that have been unaffected by modernization, focusing on its natural beauty and its people. I have always loved traveling, but while on sabbatical, I severely caught the travel bug with visits to the United Sates national parks, Kenya, Myanmar, Cambodia, Thailand, Spain, Italy, and France, all in the past year. I’m an avid travel blogger writing about unique aspects of a culture while adding a dash of humor.
I like to combine my love for the land and its people with modern technology (trained mathematician and computer scientist) into beautiful photographs. I often combine advanced photographic techniques with various post-processing techniques to arrive at images that fully capture the beauty of my subject. I have been a photographer since 2012, winning won numerous awards from publications such as Arizona Highways and the Massachusetts Audubon Society and exhibited at the Darkroom Gallery in Vermont. I just received the 2016 PhotoShop World Guru Award for Photography!
I am currently on the board of directors of WorldPix, a growing charity with a goal “to help impoverished nations around the world by capturing their beauty through photographic images and returning the profits of those images back to causes within those countries.” As a member of the board, I am responsible for the content of the website WorldPix along with helping set the direction of the charity. Additionally, I was invited to be an affiliate, a gallery of my photos on the WorldPix website: Jeff’s WorldPix Gallery.
In my career, I have been the founder, and president of a high-tech company where I managed growth from inception through his thirteen years at the helm. I have also been a director of consulting at a software company in Massachusetts.
I hold a Master’s degree in Computer Science from Worcester Polytechnic Institute and Bachelor’s degree in Applied Mathematics from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst. I am also a graduate of New York Institute of Photography’s Complete Course in Professional Photography
I currently shoot with a Nikon D800E and try to never leave home without it.
