About George

My parents met and married in England and I spent my first eight years there before we moved home to the States and East Boston. I was a tall, lanky kid with a permanent cowlick and a head full of dreams. One day my grandfather gave me a license to make stuff and call it art. Not long after that, luck happened … I got a scholarship to study art at the MFA in Boston. That’s where I found my calling in the form of a Kodak Instamatic Film Camera.

I trained as a helicopter crew chief in the military and after that studied photography full time at Franklin Institute. In time I went on to manage media departments for two fortune five hundred corporations. 

Since then I have photographed more advertising campaigns than I can remember and my cameras have brought me around the world more than once. One shoot alone took me to Nike, Mellon Bank, BMW, British Air and The Bank of China in China. I've photographed steel mills, big jets on frozen runways, racehorses, ship captains, farmers at sunrise, authors, sports ikons and maybe you. That's “chasing light” for a living.

Things I love ... TV show Gotham, my dog Diesel, Lilacs, Leonard Cohen, Amy Winehouse, writing, philosophy, long sleeve tee shirts, oatmeal with blueberries.
