George Aronson enjoyed a successful career in corporate Information Technology as programmer, project manager, data base manager, and consultant, from 1964 through 1989. He walked away from that world to spend full-time as a nature photographer, advocate for open space preservation, lecturer on environmental topics, and fine-art printer. His photography has put him in the forefront of efforts to preserve Sterling Forest in nearby Orange County, N.Y., and the N.J. Highlands-comprising portions of seven north Jersey counties and containing vast and irreplaceable treasures of drinking water supplies, forests, mountains, and critical wildlife habitat.
His work has appeared in
dozens of national, regional, and local magazines, books, newsletters, annual
reports and studies. One of the more recent was the 2002 follow-up to the
1992 study (also illustrated by Aronson's images) of the N.Y.-N.J. Highlands
Region conducted by the U.S. Forest Service.
Eastman Kodak's 2000 edition of their Introduction to Digital Photography used nearly 20 of his images.
His photographs hang in the offices of numerous corporations, in those of public officials on the local, state, and national levels, and in many private collections.
