A brief history of me and how I got here.
My earliest days of photography were in high school using film cameras. That was the norm, until digital became affordable, and revived my interest in photography. Not just taking pictures, but photography as an art form. Since the early 2000s, I’ve pursued my passion in capturing the everyday. The scenes and feelings we experience, but all too soon forget in the thrum of the everyday. Currently my interest is in nature, landscapes, and architecture.
As a North Carolina native, I really enjoy the areas of North and South Carolina. The wildlife, the old buildings, the history of these two states. It’s a great place to call home.
