Roger Williams Park is comprised of a zoo and open park grounds. I’m not much into shooting zoo animals, but the park grounds are quite large. I think the best thing about this location is there are so many different visual subjects to photograph in a reasonably sized area.

This place is a hidden gem in West Greenwich, Rhode Island. The falls are small but vigorous in their movements and they travel over many layers of stone. Hence the name: Stepping Stone Falls.

This photo story discusses how to avoid distracting elements when taking landscape photographs. In this analysis, I'm attempting to create an image of the Newport Bridge, a local landmark in Rhode Island, and in doing so came across two obstacles.

Are you having a long, stressful week? Then lets break stuff! This is not an original concept, but it's something that I've never had the opportunity to shoot. I started by sketching compositions in my awesome moleskin hipster notepad.
