I am a New Yorker, but I was raised in the sunshine state, which I credit for my happy disposition.

I am an artist. I’ve always loved using my camera to create photographs that instantly transport people to their happy place.

I am an explorer. Some of my earliest memories include spinning my family’s globe and deciding to visit every inch of it, tracing paths across the continents with my finger. There’s not a place on earth I wouldn’t love to go with my camera.

I have my bachelor’s degree in Art History from a small liberal arts school in Vermont, studied the French Impressionists in Cannes, and learned the ropes of the art gallery world in Sydney, Australia. Then I moved to NYC and studied photography at the International Center of Photography. I love being able to combine all the different aspects from my educational background together to create custom portraiture as well as fine art photography for my clients.

I am inspired by little details and huge ideas. When I manage to capture both with my camera, it helps to tell a visual story everyone can enjoy and I can be proud of.

I love: sunglasses, peanut M&Ms, sailboats, my sound canceling headphones, champagne, a great night’s sleep, and wandering around the Metropolitan Museum!

    Patrick - Hi Colleen, This is Patrick, Val’s friend from California. When I was out in NY in January you and I talked about me possibly using some of your images of everest and that area for my site. I am finally getting to where I need to design it and was wondering if that would still be a possibility…you would of course get credits and links to your site…Let me know. Thanks so much…and the site looks great.
