THE ABSTRACTION OF AERIAL PHOTOGRAPHY   Fine Art Photography is all about taking a different view of things. I've recently discovered the creative freedom and possibilities offered when flying over the landscape, where things you would never notice at ground level all of a sudden take on a completely different appearance when viewed from above. After a recent snowstorm here in Connecticut, I went to the shore to take photographs at the beach, a favorite location of mine. By sheer chance, I flew my drone over the parking lot I had parked in, and these amazing tableaux created by car tracks ..read more

Amidst this spectacle, there's a hidden gem that offers a glimpse into the city's glittering past – the Neon Boneyard at the Neon Museum.

Coney Island parachute jump from below The history of Coney Island, like the rides themselves, is extremely colorful.  In fact, when one reads about all the different plans to demolish the area over the last several decades (and destruction caused by fires and bad weather), it seems like a small miracle that there is still so much to see there. The early history of the area goes back to the local Lenape Native American inhabitants, who called the area "Narrioch," whose meaning has been called "always in light," describing how its beaches face the southern sunlight.  I certainly foun ..read more

Shape and color: two things that excite me when I am out photographing, and that come together so wonderfully in the iconic lifeguard stands of Miami Beach.  Quirky and fun, but also built with a utilitarian safety purpose, these lifeguard stands take on even more personality as they age and become weather-beaten. This 15th Street lifeguard stand was designed by a student from Florida International University The patriotic stars and stripes lifeguard stand at 13th Street Each of these lifeguard stands is distinctive, and there are thirty five of them lining the beach for miles from Sou ..read more

Lobster Roll / Lunch, Amagansett It's always fun to go back to a place where one spent one's youth, or at least part of one's youth, to see what's changed and what has remained the same.  Of course, it's not just the stuff "out there" that's changed, but even more so, it's the person doing the seeing that has changed.  Memories fade, things are misremembered or are remembered again for the first time in many years.  It's with this in mind that I took a brief two-day drive through the Hamptons after nearly 20 years of being away.  Here are some fleeting impressions from my ..read more

Recently, writer and photographer John Bramaan sat down with Peter to talk to him about his approach to taking photographs, his tips for collecting fine art photography, and to learn more about what inspires him as an artist. John - Fine art photography is one of those terms that seems to mean quite different things to different people. Can you provide a definition? What is fine art photography for you? Peter - Fine art photography is a very broad term and can encompass many different genres, but in general I see it as an intentional way of presenting photographic work that reflects the uniqu ..read more
