Untitled photo

I have been passionate about photography since picking up my first camera almost 40 years ago. It was a Pentax Spotmatic and I was taking a portrait of my friend Claire through a chain-link fence. She was in focus and the fence just disappeared. I had stumbled upon the magic of focal length and aperture.

I specialize in photos taken with natural light including family portraits, senior portraits, staff and employee headshots;  camp photography both candid portraits and action/activity shots; and event photography.

An avid birder and coffee lover, I started the Lazy Explorer in 2010 and have since become an advocate for non-destructive, bird-friendly, shade-grown coffee. I have developed a line of coffee mugs designed to support shade-grown.

I am known for making my subjects comfortable in front of the camera. I approach each session well prepared and armed with ideas, often suggesting interesting locations and perspectives for portraits.

Based out of Easthampton Massachusetts I am reasonably priced and will travel throughout the four counties of Western MA.

Let’s talk about your next project. I’ll buy the coffee (shade-grown of course). phil@thelazyexplorer.com
