Larry Blair grew up in Horseheads, with a great fondness for the Finger Lakes region. As a youth, he spent summers on Keuka Lake and continues to return to the region with his family each summer and fall.
A former student at the Rochester Institute of Technology, and employee of Eastman Kodak for 10 years, Larry developed an appreciation for photography. It wasn’t until Larry retired from the fast-paced world of Silicon Valley startups, where he co-founded a company that developed the world’s first Ethernet switch and served as VP marketing for various networking companies, that he pursued his interest in fine art photography.
Photographing the majestic beauty of the Finger Lakes region is both a fascination and passion for Larry, capturing a moment of nature’s beauty to share with others. He is inspired to use photography to stir the emotions and senses, much like a composer does with music, to create a visual relationship with nature.
