While Marty is no longer with us, he lives on in the many outstanding images he captured over the years. Marty started in photography like a lot of folks, just fooling around with a camera at a young age and in his case it was a Kodak 620 that belonged to his dad. Later in High school and college he worked on the school newspapers and year books furthering his interest in photograpy. For a while he worked as a freelancer when he got the opportunity to work for a local portrait and wedding studio. Five years later a new opportunity came his way as a photographer at the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania as part of Commonwealth Media Services. In his 31-year career at the Commonwealth, Marty captured many iconic images including the Quecreek mine rescue that obtained national coverage in 2002 and wildlife and landscape photos that can be found on Pennsylvania license plates, maps and publications. In his spare time, he photographed weddings and noteworthy events such as the Lady Keystone Open in Hershey, PA and the BASF golf tournament in Georgia. This web site is dedicated to sharing just some of the great images Marty took over the years.
In the collection below you will find some shots I took while visiting Middle Creek. The lake is in the migration path of snow geese and when heading north they spend a little time there. There can be 10s of thousands if you go on the right day. Its an amazing site and I hope you will enjoy these pictures I captured while there.

Like most photographers over the years I have taken more pictures than I can count.
