My interest in photography began in high school. This is when I learned how to expand my view of the world by capturing my surroundings in a focused moment through a lens. Over the last 20+ years, the artistic freedom of the camera has provided a means of escape from the journey through college and career, and continues to do so today. Although I was hesitant to transition from 35mm film to the vast new realm of digital photography, I soon learned that what once seemed an overwhelming advance in technology was merely another mechanism to capture those focused moments. The skills acquired with a camera combined with my passion for the outdoors and adventure led me towards a particular interest in travel, landscape and nature photography. I enjoy the experiences that photography provides and the feeling of accomplishment when I capture an image just as I wanted. I have always felt a desire to share my images with family, friends and passersby so they too may experience this form of art and perhaps gain a different perspective on the world that surrounds them.

July 13, 2017 – October 31, 2017
Carl Schofield was a research scientist with the department of natural resources at Cornell University from 1960 to 1995. Before retiring in 1995, much of his work was focused on acid rain impacts of the Adirondack Mountains in New York State, Canada and Scandinavia. His long term interest in photography dates back to his teens and following his retirement he has pursued this former hobby more vigorously as an avocation.
Carl’s primary interests are nature, landscape and travel photography. He exhibits his work regularly in local venues. Infrared landscape photography is of particular interest to Carl and his infrared work was featured in a 2001 Popular Photography professional portfolio publication. Carl currently uses several digital and film cameras to capture his images and he prints with Epson and Canon large format printers.
