The Essex County Artist Fund is Essex County
Community Foundation’s response to the immediate and everyday needs of artists
to be supported and lifted up across the county and across sectors. At ECCF,
our philosophy is to build a creative ecosystem focused on awareness and
appreciation for arts and culture, capacity building, collaboration, and
cultural planning. Individual artists and arts/culture organizations are
key to this network.www.eccf.org/creative-county.

Creative Practice: Photographer in Saugus, I currently shoot mostly news, which is art. I shoot features, fun photos as well as cover news like this pandemic. I also shoot some weddings, which i lost all of this season, which really cut into my budget. I work for local and international clients.
Artist Statement: My photos are published in digital, print and video outlets around the world and locally, from the Everett Leader Herald, the Gloucester times to the NY Daily News and CNN. My images of great white sharks were used last year all over the world to show what shark and seals look like in the Cape and not like in Jaws.
