I have had the pleasure of photographing for Paul Eppley for over 20 years now; his talent and professionalism are among the best, and he is at the top of his field.
For over 34 years, Eppley has been serving the finest builders, contractors,
architects and designers in the tri-state area.
One of the greatest compliments we receive from these
respected professionals is, “We trust you. Show me the best way to do this
job.” They ask for our advice because, over the years, we’ve proved time and
time again that they can trust our expertise and integrity.
From intricate details to the completion of grand-scale designs, Eppley can
be counted on to deliver on our promises. We will help you find ways to

asset is our people. We’ve attracted and retained exceptional talent, from
our draftsmen and wood masters to our finish engineers. They take pride in
their work, and their dedication to every project results in stunning
masterpieces in wood.

Financier and attorney Charles E. Rushmore (of Mt. Rushmore’s namesake) commissioned the 25-room, four building estate in 1908. This spectacular Spanish Colonial-style mansion served as place for Rushmore’s ill wife, Jeannette, to rest. The pristine grounds and privacy provided a perfect respite from the hustle and rush of New York City.
Much of the house’s interior has been preserved in its original condition. The Rushmore Estate’s ballroom features vaulted ceilings with elegant plaster carvings, French doors opening to a stone patio, oak floors and an oversized fireplace.
The rooms make the Rushmore Estate a unique experience, illustrating lavish architecture in each room that can shift from a personal dining room into a sitting room. A fireside library is available for cocktails. Above the ballroom are four large guest suites, each with its own private bath.
Outside, an unusual landmark remains from the early 1900s: A stone and stucco clocktower with the original Tiffany clock still ticking inside.
I was hired to photograph the estate by the current owner Seth Pulver. He has done extensive renovations to rooms above the Ballroom to open as a Bed & Breakfast. If your interested reserving a room please call 845-500-6585. The photo’s here are of the whole estate including some of the incredible architectural features of the main house.
Thanks to everyone who came out last Friday to the Seligmann Center for the Arts Gallery for the opening of the Exhibition ( Salt Of The Earth ) I received a grant from the Mid Hudson Arts Council to document the farmers who conserved their land through the Orange County Land Trust. Their are far too many to thank, you know who you are ! however I’d like to especially thank Jim Delaune, Caroline Hamling, and Lisa Weisbrod from the Orange County Land Trust. Dorothy Gaydos for her interviews and accompanying text for the show , and all the Farmers and Workers who participated ! The show will be traveling though Orange county and beyond. Here is a sample from the Exhibition.
Over the past eight month’s or so I’ve had the opportunity to photograph up in Woodstock NY at Levon Helm’s Barn. The people who run the show are fantastic and it’s the best place to see fabulous musicians in an intimate small venue.
