|About the Artist |
Russ was born in Massachusetts and spent his childhood growing up in Connecticut. He developed an interest for photography at the age of 12 after his parents bought him his first camera. He has improved on that original camera and has recently made the move to the digital world. Russ has found that digital photography provides him with expanded capabilities over conventional film photography.
After graduating from college, he joined the military and for the past 20 years he has had the opportunity to live in many different places, experience various cultures and take advantage of many photographic opportunities. He considers himself fortunate to have been able to call Southern Maryland home since the year 2000.
Russ is an accomplished photographer with his photographs winning several awards. Although he enjoys taking pictures of just about anything, Russ specializes in photographing landscapes, nature, wildlife and sporting events.
