Born, raised and lived in Mobile Alabama my entire life. It's a beautiful place, in it's own unique way. Writers are instructed to write what they know, so I shoot what I know; my home town and the surrounding communities. As a history teacher, I am drawn to the documentary aspect of photography. The ability to capture a moment that is fleeting is intriguing. Whether shooting the moment of a sunset, waves on the shore, the steady march of rust on metal it is all transient; never to appear the same way again. Photography documents artfully the stopped moment that is now the permanent past.
