I am a nature photographer and instructor just outside of Waynseville, NC specializing in grand landscapes and wildlife imagery. Growing up I spent much of my time surrounded by nature in the mountains, lakes and streams of North Carolina and Tennessee. Always eager to share my adventures from the most recent camping or hiking expedition, I settled on nature photography as my medium.
Encouraged by my family’s love for travel, I have been fortunate enough to visit 49 US states and 25 countries, always looking to experience what each has to offer for landscape and wildlife photography. Inspired by exposure to different cultures and a vast array of wilderness, I attempt to delivery imagery that tells a story, immersing the viewer into the scene, while maintaining a realism that is often missing in today’s photography.
