One of my first memories of waterfalls were from family trips to Ithaca, Watkins Glen, and Salmon River Falls. I love all nature and have made it my life mission to document these marvelous natural scenes and present them for all to enjoy.
I love discovering waterfalls, gorges, parks and other attractions in this great state of New York and elsewhere. I have thoroughly enjoyed the beauty and tranquility of life in the Finger Lakes since moving to Ithaca in 1972.
After graduating from Hannibal, NY High School, and Jefferson Community College Watertown, NY, I have done commercial, wedding, portrait, event and illustrative photography in Ithaca since 1979.
I have been president of both the Ithaca Lions and Ithaca Sunrise Rotary Clubs, and a member of the Tompkins County Artistic Community. As a professional photographer for over 3 decades I have incorporated the beauty of waterfalls with my wedding, portrait and studio work. My business has continued to grow with the help of loyal clients: Cornell University, Ithaca College, Toyota, People and Time magazines, Exxon Mobil, Tompkins Trust, The Computing Center, American Crafts and many other local businesses and friends in the Finger Lakes.
In 2004, I first published the Finger Lakes Waterfall Calendar. On this 14th anniversary Calendar, I have something new and unique to offer. In addition there are 43 waterfalls representing 10 New York counties depicted on a State map with 15 named Finger Lakes. And as always there are unique moon cycle photos and practical large write-in blocks. There are 14 months, including January and February of 2018, plus 2016 and 2017 year-at-a-glance on the inside back cover.
I acknowledge Barney and Peter Schug of Cayuga Press in Cortland, NY for the initial idea, and their entire team at Cayuga Press for the incredible printing. I also thank Doreen Warholic for calendar design and Michael Erb at CNY Web Works for the Waterfall Calendar website design.
