Finding November e-book - 89 pages
Mark assigned himself a project to photograph November,
staying close to home in western New England and northern New York State. He was out nearly every day — anytime from predawn to night —
making images and recording his impressions. His goal was to look beyond the bare trees and gray skies to discover November’s hidden beauty.
It became a very personal project, an exercise in the art of seeing and expanding his craft. The results were unexpectedly beautiful! See November as you’ve never seen it. Savor every image, feel its very essence.

Mark continues his ambitious project to photograph New York State and New England landscapes and cityscapes at night. He has been recording the tremendous variety of mountains, woods and waters, seascapes, villages and cities under the night sky — from New York to Maine. The project has culminated in a special presentation — with still images, time lapse sequences, music and narration — showcasing the majesty of the Great Northeast at night.
Mark's popular monthly photography column has been extended for 2016. He showcases a special image and provides the story behind it — how it was taken and processed. Topics have included: focus stacking, blending panoramas and HDR's, photographing flowing water, using filters for creative effect, macro photography and night photography. Follow the feature here.

Adirondack Islands Feature - Adirondack Life Annual Guide 2015 issue

In 2014 Mark was on assignment to photograph islands across the Adirondack Park. Hundreds of islands decorate lakes, ponds and rivers. Beautiful and diverse, they have a special charm and allure. They are places of sanctuary and solace. They beckon exploration. Shot from boats, planes and remote shores, this photo feature explored the stunning variety, geography and recreational opportunities that make the islands so appealing.
