Thanks very much for your interest in my work -
I'm a Tennessee base fine art photographer specializing in black & white and monochromatic color-toned images.
The first day that I spent with a camera I discovered that being completely focused on a scene, created a sense of peace in me I'd never known before. When I'm photographing, the world around me gets quiet, I lose all sense of time passing and feel deeply connected to the moment. Being someone who's always struggled with worry about "what's next", this was a life changing discovery for me. Photography allows me to quiet my mind, feel present in the moment and see the world with deeper meaning and appreciation.
A minimalist at heart, I'm drawn to scenes that are uncomplicated and free of distracting elements. My hope is that my work will convey the sense of quiet connection and peace that I felt when I made the picture.
A major focus of my work is producing high quality fine art prints. I believe there is artistry in every part of the photographic process and to me a picture is not successful unless it makes a great print. From image capture, to post processing to materials selection, I take a lot of pride in the prints that I produce and will never ship one that I'm not happy to sign my name to.
I've been a working photographer for over 10 years and feel very fortunate to have found some success in what can be a humbling pursuit. In addition to being held in private and corporate collections, my work has been featured in numerous books, magazines, corporate ads and recently appeared in the Ken Burns film "Country Music".
If you have any questions or custom inquiries, I would love to hear from you, please don't hesitate to contact me.
