Caleb’s life experiences have shaped a dynamic, multi-cultural perspective that is actively portrayed throughout his photography and artwork.  Born and raised internationally, but now based in Jericho, Vermont, Caleb loves capturing the amazing details Vermont has to offer.  He continues regularly exploring the rest of the globe as well, with his camera always in tow.  He focuses on nature, landscape, travel, portrait and snowflake photography.  With a profession in the Life Sciences, he enjoys fusing science and art by combining his expertise in Microscopy with his creative passions.   

  

On snowy winter days, you will likely find Caleb on his back porch pursuing one of his favorite activities - snowflake photography with a homemade microscope.  Hours of patience and perseverance in sub-zero temperatures help him capture fleeting designs that will never be repeated.  He has photographed over 3000 individual snowflakes over the last decade and enjoys sharing these intricate snowflake designs with others.

My childhood passion for painting, drawing, and photography led me to the profession of architecture which I practiced for over 40 years, both in the United States and overseas. Throughout this career, painting and photography continued to be integral to my exploration of form, light, detail, and composition. 

 

My aesthetic direction in both of these pursuits has always ranged from representational to purely abstract, responding to the light and character of each location and culture.  The joy of painting in  

Greece for over 30 years, mainly as a watercolorist, has allowed me to explore negative space and cubistic composition through its extraordinary light. Lately, I have used my background as an architect to explore more abstract composition, color, and complexity in my painting and photography, and, most recently, sculpture. Finally, there is often the thrill of an unanticipated image that develops magically during the creative process of painting or shooting a photograph. 

 

For me, creativity has been vital and is the spirit that keeps my life invigorating and exciting. Since retiring from my architectural firm, I have intensified my experimentation with painting and photography. I also continue to travel to Greece each summer where we have a home on the island of Kea.
