Hi, I'm Judy. Welcome to my portfolio. I am a fine art photographer, living just North of New York City, in the beautiful Hudson River Valley, with my husband and two sons.
My love of photography began as a young child. While visiting my great-grandmother I would sit for hours viewing stacks of old sepia toned photographs through her stereoscope. Later, as a young teen, I'd capture my every day through my Kodak Instamatic - from flowers, to friends, and everything in between.
Today photography is very meditative for me. It slows me down and helps me to escape from the rush of the everyday. The calming pace of one of my photo shoots opens my eyes to the beauty that surrounds us all. I create photographic images to capture that beauty and to share with those who may not notice it as they go through their busy lives.
I am inspired by nature, and much of my work captures the tiny details of my subjects that others may walk right by. Macro and close-up photography are large parts of my work, although in all of my work you will see a common thread of natural light and shadows, and saturated colors.
The great outdoors is my studio. You can find me hiking wooded trails, walking through dewy pastures, and tip-toeing across mossy rocks to get just the right shot. The soft light of early morning, or the golden light of late afternoon, bring warmth to my work.
Thank you for visiting. Please stop by often, as I add to my gallery regularly. And as always, thank you for your purchases.
