He specializes in unique images from the grand scenic and exotic marketplaces to the fall foliage of New England.

The use of color in nature is his passion, whether photographing the magnificent fall foliage of New England, exotic colorful foreign lands or the muted colors of the American Southwest. Gary’s sense of color, light, composition and his ability to tell a story with his photography makes him a unique photographer and lecturer.
