Thank you for visiting my presence on the web! This section is here for you to learn a little more about me and my work. So, with that said, following is a little bit about me!
I am a West Virginia based Landscape and Nature Photographer. Through my photography, my ultimate desire is to glorify God's creation and showcase the natural beauty of West Virginia, and inspire others to preserve and protect the many special places found in the Mountain State.
For over twenty years I have been traipsing about West Virginia in search of grand vistas, majestic waterfalls and intimate forest scenes. I spend most of my time exploring and photographing the amazingly beautiful scenery found in the New River Gorge National River, the Monongahela National Forest, the Canaan Valley National Wildlife Refuge and the various state parks and wildlife management areas throughout the state.
I am coauthor of the multi-award winning book: West Virginia Waterfalls: The New River Gorge and am currently hard at work on several additional titles. I conduct photography workshops throughout West Virginia and beyond. My images have appeared in print and digital publications - both regional and national - are in private and corporate collections and have been used for marketing and corporate recruitment. I work with several advertising/marketing agencies with duties ranging from capturing specific images for various publications to covering events like the National Boy Scout Jamboree. I was selected as Photographer in Residence for the Canaan Valley National Wildlife Refuge during the summer of 2010. I am a Juried Fine Arts Photographer with Tamarack: The Best of West Virginia, located in Beckley, and my work can also be viewed at the Buxton and Landstreet Gallery in Thomas, WV. My images are represented by Tandem Stills + Motion, Inc. - one of the world's leading image providers. I reside in Williamson with my wife Melissa, our daughter Hannah and my trusty hiking companion Rocky, our mixed-breed dog.
Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or wish to know more about me and/or the beautiful state of West Virginia.
