“I enjoy photography because it is a wonderful creative outlet and forces me to take the time to look at the world from different points of view,” he said.

A graduate of the New York Institute of Photography, Burroughs has been published in the Disney Institute’s magazine, local calendars and postcards, and the Schuyler County Chamber of Commerce’s annual travel guide. He has won prizes from the Gmeiner Art and Cultural Center, the Community Arts of Elmira Inc., and Tanglewood Nature Center and Museum, and was the 2013 winner of the annual B & C Photo, Inc. Creative Photography Contest.

In 2014, Burroughs was selected to exhibit at the West End Gallery in Corning for the 40-year celebration of the city’s architecture. His photos can be found at numerous local venues, such as the Corning Chamber of Commerce, the Painted Post Village Hall, and the Corning Visitor Center, which is selling his photo books of area scenery.
