Currently in Columbia, SC, I have moved around between there and my native Chicagoland a few times.
There is an art to machinery, a depth throughout nature, and an awe within the man-made; you only need to look at it in the right way. Here you will find images that are emotively bold, artistically striking, and thematically prominent, connecting you to the familiar in brand new ways through a unique perspective. Thank you for sharing my way of viewing the railroad and the world. I hope you enjoy the resulting images and the thoughts they provoke as much as I do.
Did you know? Ambrotype images were produced in the late nineteenth century by developing images onto glass plates, thus inspiring my professional namesake from my personal surname.
I have been inspired, enabled, encouraged, and assisted by many, including my amazing wife, my brother and sister, my parents and in-laws and extended families, my fraternity brothers, my friends, and more. On the professional side, please give a listen to John and Mike at MovingAmericaPodcast.com, who helped bring the rails, the photos, the art, and the community all together for me; also, check out Josh at BakerVisuals.com whose work hangs on my walls at home and guided how I think about my final products and this website.
