I've been blessed to have traveled extensively throughout the country in my professional career as a national television cameraman in news and sports. I've also been a lighthouse preservationist, having helped to save a lighthouse near our Rhode Island home. In 2018, my wife was transferred in her work to Detroit, and I spent many months traveling back and forth from there to our home. It gave me the opportunity to shoot some of the many lighthouses in the state.
In December 2017, the first book "Stars and Lights: The Darkest of Dark Nights" was released to critical acclaim, and it has won numerous national and international book awards. The Stars & Lights Project has been adopted by the United States Lighthouse Society, and David Zapatka has been named an Ambassador for the organization. We hope to continue the night photography on the national level, and soon the entire collection will be available through the USLHS website.
I hope you enjoy these photographs and any can be purchased from me directly at [email protected]
