Hi, I love photographing the Natural World. I am a Portrait Photographer and a Nature Photographer both- I equally enjoy them, and they each teach me things that help me in photographing the other. I will load some portrait galleries soon.
I graduated in 2006, and I worked for several years as a Photoshop Technician and a Photographer for Wedding and Portrait Studios in Raleigh. I struggled for a long time to determine what I was wanting for my life; I was timid about showing my work, and I went back to school and wound up in debt.
For the last four and a half years I barely picked up my camera- I was trying to rid myself of those debts and I was lacking focus or passion. I had forgotten the magic that is being a photographer. What a privilege it is!
2012 was a life-changing year for me (I will elaborate on this on my Facebook, after I set it up - because it is a long story), but the events and trials of 2012 awakened me and set me on a course to the mission I am pursuing now. I was challenged and because of that I made significant leaps forward in my Photo-Finishing, I paid off my debts over the next two years, and I began preparing for the next two years to put myself and my goals in order, and finally, to launch myself and my work.
I am working to get my business started, and I want to make connections and travel in order to photograph the world. I am working toward many different goals; I know I cannot lose any more time. All of my current work has been shot in my home state of North Carolina - a major goal this coming year is to have enough income from my work to leave my day job and start traveling within the U.S. and then further. Here I hope to make connections with like-minded artists and groups who can educate me (and we help each other)- I want to make friends and join with each other if and when possible.
I have loved nature all my life- I want to be true to it. I push the color and brilliance of my work, but I still intend to retain reality. I hope my work will be an inspiration and a spark to the imagination.
I am working to get all of my web presences built. I appreciate your interest in checking out my work, and I would love to hear from you. I will be reaching out soon- I am very thankful to those who have liked and commented on my images.
Thank you so much for visiting, and please stay tuned....
