I was born in the foothills of Tennesse in the mid 1900's. Wow that makes me feel old. I got interested in photography when I was 13. My parents bought my first camera it was a polaroid black and white 60 second camera. After taking a few photos and watching them come to life in 60 seconds I was hooked. And have had a passion for photography ever since. It was a hobby for many years then I got into selling images for profit. I have photographed many weddings, portraites, high school seniors, and many other events over the years, and still do a few now. But my passion has always been landscapes, seascapes and other outdoor subjects. I use Nikon cameras and lenses because they have always done the job I needed. I also do some photoshop with my images to enhance the colors and saturation to make them more pleasing to the eye. Some HDR photography, I believe it is another good tool to use. Some of my photography is created with computer software to look like paintings. As an artist I am always looking for ways to make my images more creative.
