I would love to call myself a full time landscape photographer, but currently I'm a 'semi professional' who maintains a somewhat normal day job to pay the bills. I grew up in western North Carolina, and I find peace of mind venturing to remote portions of the United States in search of classic images and my own unique perspectives. I picked up a camera during my undergraduate years at NC State University and began an exponential journey into the world of photography. Initially focusing strongly on macro work and testing the waters with wildlife photography, I truely enjoyed the challenge of chasing good light and seasonal conditions which brought me to where I am today. I utilize Canon cameras and lenses along with Singh Ray filters in creating my images. Much of my work is processed in Photoshop with the aid of Tony Kuyper's Photoshop actions which I have come to love and permit the level of fine tuning in various areas of the post processing workflow.
I've had images published in a variety of different outlets including the Raleigh's News & Observer, The North Carolina Naturalist, Fifteen 501 Magazine and the Cooperative Institute for Ocean Exploration, Research and Technology (CIOERT) website. I've recently begun stepping into the realm of photo education and teaching as an assistant for my good friend and mentor Colby Brown with landscape workshops all across the country for various audiences.
