At the age of nine his father handed him a Brownie Hawkeye box camera and said “ Go take photos”. He has almost always had a camera with him since then. At first it was a unique way of recording people, places and events but then it evolved into a desire for expressing the beauty that surrounds us. Capturing that beauty and being able to share it with others is his passion. A camera, a walk, becomes a meditation thru the lens. Take a close look at his images and see and feel the awe he experienced in that moment.
Don has traveled throughout the United States and his work can be found in many private collections as well as hospitals and corporations. He has won numerous awards for his works, including Best of Show in Photography at the Cape May County National Arts Exhibit. His photographs have been published in “Visions” and “Four Seasons at The Shore”, two tabletop coffee books as well as numerous travel articles about Cape May.

A self-taught artist, Don continues to find inspiration in the woods and fields, oceans and skies near his home in Cape May as well as the mountains of Montana and when he travels thru the National Parks of the United States.
