Being a native of North Carolina, I am so fortunate to have such a beautiful, versatile state to explore and photograph. However, my heart belongs to the coast, with it's deep heritage and pride of it's people. I love to capture the essence of the old shrimpers, scallop boats, and oyster crafts. It is a way of living that seems to be fading away, along with the wildlife and bounties of the sea. With that being said, I still venture out in the early mornings to see what the sunrise will show me!

Bio

I am a proud native of North Carolina. I've always enjoyed photography and usually was the dedicated "picture taker" in the family. However, I did not get serious about it until a few years ago. I now keep my Canon 5D and my Sony Cybershot with me at all times. My favorite thing to do is get up just before dawn and go out and see what the sunrise will show me. It could be the landscape,wildlife, a shrimper heading out, or a native fisherman getting ready to go about his day. I enjoy photographing most all things, but tend to lean towards landscapes and wildlife. When I first started getting serious I took tons of pictures and thought they were all incredible.. I've learned quite a bit over the past few years and I'm now quite "picky" when choosing my subjects and reviewing my own work. I believe what Ansel Adams once said. If a photographer takes one GREAT picture a year, he has done something!
That is my goal, but I would like to have more than one!
