"I have always been inspired by the imagery around me, and after moving to the Blue Ridge Mountains of Western North Carolina in 1999 I was moved by the stunning beauty that surrounded me. My desire to capture these amazing locations eventually led me to pick up a camera in an effort to preserve not only the picturesque landscapes around me, but the fleeting and often times enchanting conditions that these landscapes endure.
When I plan my outdoor photo shoots, I am always looking for that special something that you don’t see everyday, that perfect moment when something amazing happens. To be able to capture these magic moments is what I believe is the true essence of landscape photography. My greatest hope is that with enough hard work I may be able to bring something beautiful into people’s lives."
