Neal has been a photographer for over 20 years, starting out as a wildlife photographer showing animals in their natural habitats and how they interact with each other and their surroundings. He has also done extensive work photographing abandoned buildings, illustrating the impact of time and decay. Over the past five years he has also become a passionate street photographer, showing the moods of the city of Boston and its people. Recently he shifted his eye to fine art photography, creating unique images focused on beaches, the ocean and the coastal environment. Influenced by photographers Alison Shaw and Steve Koppel, Neal creates images that communicate energy and movement, and soft, other-worldly images created using a drone. As a member of the Photographic Resource Center Neal has displayed his work in the juried Your Work Here 2022 exhibition at the FPAC Gallery in Boston, MA. His work has been a part of two juried Boston Society for Architecture exhibits as well. Other exhibitions include the South Shore Natural Science Center, Hanover, MA; Scituate Public Library, Scituate, MA; Braintree Public Library, Braintree, MA; and the South Shore Conservatory, Hingham, MA. Currently his ocean and beach photography is featured at the Woodman/Shimko gallery in Provincetown, MA.
