About 56×56

Welcome to 56×56, a website and blog dedicated to all things photographic that I find interesting, ranging from the photography monograph to night photography to the square forma. I will also provide updates on my own photography. I hope you find it useful and enjoyable!

About Me

I am a fine art photographer specializing in nature and night photography, particularly in the square format. I live in midcoast Maine with my amazing wife and daughter.portrait

After pursuing  careers in engineering and law, I have now shifted my professional focus exclusively to photography and fine art digital printing.

Until relocating to New England, I found early photographic inspiration in the wide-open vistas and classic grandeur of the American West. I know find most of my photographic opportunities and inspirations in Maine’s stunning mountain and coastal landscapes.

Why 56×56?

An homage to my first love in the square format (and something I still use today for much of my work) – the Bronica SQ-A series of medium format camera that produces slides and negatives that are 56mm square.  Coincidentally, and perhaps in a bit of premonition, my favorite bike as a kid was a Huffy with a ’56’ on the front plate.
