When my wife Marcy and I chose to move to the New Hampshire Seacoast back in 1993, we weren’t alone. Since then, southern New Hampshire has been one of the fastest growing parts of New England. It was around that time that land trusts started forming in the area to protect some of the most vulnerable and ecologically valuable local land. The Southeast Land Trust of New Hampshire roots date back even earlier (1980), and they have done some amazing work conserving tens of thousands of acres in a very diverse landscape.
While I shoot all over the Northeast and beyond for clients, it’s very satisfying to get to work on important conservation projects close to home, and thanks to SELT I get that opportunity often. I’ve been shooting projects for them on a regular basis since 2015, and this year I found myself on around ten SELT properties shooting a variety of subject matter, from dairy farms to tidal marshes to riverine forests.
I hope you enjoy this sample of my SELT work this year:
