About Me

I am a freelance photographer living in Asheville, NC.  In 1981 I retired as a Lieutenant Colonel from the US Army after twenty years of service. My military background was in communications and data processing and I was a Senior Army Aviator with two tours in Vietnam as a helicopter pilot.

I earned a Bachelor of Industrial Management degree from Auburn University and a Masters degree in Information Technology from George Washington University. Although I am not formally trained as a photographer, I have taken courses from the New York Institute of Photography and have attended numerous seminars and workshops on photographic tecniques. I have had a passion for photography for over 50 years and the greatest influences on my style are the works of Edward WestonPaul StrandJohn SextonClyde ButcherImogen Cunningham and the artist, Georgia O'Keeffe.  I enjoy most sharing my vision of what I find in nature and live music through the lens of my camera. 

I am a member of the Professional Photographers of America, the National Association of Press Photographers and a founding charter member of the North American Nature Photographers Association. I am a member distributor of the International Freelance Photographers Organization (IFPO) and am accredited by and on assignment  to "Today's Photographer Magazine International", published by American Image Press. I concentrate and specialize in nature and fine art photography but I also enjoy on-the-scene photojournalism.  

All of the photographs in this site are available for purchase.  I also produce and sell my own line of note cards using my original photographs. For a description of the equipment and processes I use, click on the "Photo Bag" button to the left.
