Photography has always been a passion of mine. I have traveled all over the world to many beautiful places and I have yet to find the beauty that compares to my beautiful West Virginia. Born and raised in the beautiful Fayette County, I am a self taught photographer who had a dream and never gave up on it. I hope to encourage others to follow their dreams and never give up because I am living proof that life long dreams really do come true.
My love for photography started at a very young age and I strive to capture the natural beauty that is often overlooked by others.I am irresistibly drawn to reveal the essence of all elements within nature. Being one with nature allows me to capture all of God's creatures in their natural environment. The simple glare of the sun or even a shadow on old rustic barns, buildings or farms captivates me. Building a bridge between nature and people is my goal; creating images to help make that connection is my passion.
The countless hours I have spent hiking in the mountains has heightened my experience as a nature photographer. The driving force behind my photography is simply my love for nature and sharing my creativity with others.
Created from the heart, I hope my images will touch and inspire others to enjoy their natural surroundings as much as I do.
I am a member of the Beckley Art Gallery and the Beckley Photography Club . My work is in the West Virginia State Capital, the Robert C. Byrd United States Courthouse and Federal Building and in Private Collections. My work has been selected and sent to the Chief Judge of the 4th Circuit Court of Appeals of the United States. I have recently become a photographer for Our-WV.com - I'm proud to be affiliated with such a great outfit that promotes and supports West Virginia's artisans.
