I honestly can't remember a time when I wasn't passionate about both Nature and Photography. My parents took us on hundreds of camping trips growing up and I credit those trips for all three of my loves, the third being Travel.
I graduated from college at East Carolina University in 1995 with a degree in Business and moved to Raleigh where I started my first company. Life happens as they say and for many years my photography was simply my creative outlet for everyday stress, as well as my excuse be in Nature and Travel. The last 8 years, however, have been focused on "serious" photography not only shooting but also equipment, technique, editing, and building both my image and travel portfolios. When people ask me what inspires my passion I say there is a great big world out there and I have to see it all! My goal is to capture the beauty of each destination in a way that will inspire folks to step outside their comfort zone and book the trip they've always wanted to take. Over the last 7-10 years, I have traveled the United States shooting our National Parks including the Grand Canyon, Yosemite, Glacier National Park and Yellowstone on multiple occasions. I've shot wildlife and landscapes in Alaska, Mexico, Amsterdam, Iceland and Tanzania Africa with upcoming trips to Ireland, Italy, and Antarctica. New York City, North Carolina Outer Banks, Florida Keys, Florida Everglades, Los Angeles, San Francisco and the Scenic Coast of California are among my favorite USA shooting destinations.
