About NYFalls

Why this website?


NYFalls.com was created in 2006

Founder, Matthew Conheady, wanted to learn photography and put his photos online. Realizing no one would want to see mediocre photos of waterfalls, he decided to make the site half about photography, half about education and awareness of great locations for photography.

Original mission

This site was made to promote the preservation and continued enjoyment of upstate NY watersheds and the wonderful waterfalls and gorges present in the area. This is a community where photographers, conservationists and anyone who enjoys waterfalls can learn and share information about falls in their area.

Current mission

This site exists to help people appreciate the natural beauty of Upstate New York, in hopes of encouraging more people to appreciate it, either by visiting, admiring, or creating art from their inspiration. Our goal is to help protect these areas through awareness of their beauty and importance.

NYFalls.comOur Team

This site is run by an unpaid, under-appreciated, but highly talented team of friendly people.  

NYFalls.comOur Sponsors

NYFalls is funded through a combination of financing from the founder, Matt, and the sale of his photos. The rest is covered by the advertisements plastered throughout the website.
