I live near Chattanooga, Tennessee and spend most of my time shooting nature images. I fell in love with photography in Europe where I purchased my first SLR camera. My love of nature and her glory came from my childhood, my father loved trees and to spend time in the forest, he appreciated the beauty and the solitude of nature. We went hiking together frequently and he taught me to respect and enjoy nature. Once I had a camera in my hands I found how to capture the glory of nature; this is where I find my peace and happiness. I have found a way to capture and share natures glory with others.
I want to bring to others the glory of nature and the peace and happiness that I feel when I am shooting these images. I hope that others experience the same peace and happiness that I feel, when they look at my images. If I can help others experience the peace and beauty of nature through my images, then I can help people develop a respect for nature and this is one of my life's goals.
