Biography

My wife and I live in rural Chatham County North Carolina. I have been involved in photography for the last 25 years, with a weighted interest in black and white photography. I am available to shoot all kinds of photography. See my galleries for examples of my past work. I also have some fine art and other photographs for sale. Any print purchased can be signed, matted and framed. Contact me for pricing.


My interests include mainly object photography; which is buildings, nature, macro, portraits, and animals.  Activities include; Chatham Animal Rescue and Education (C.A.R.E.) volunteer work, the Triangle B&W Photo Group (1997-2004), 2 years as President of the NIEHS Camera Club (1999-2001), volunteer photography for German Shepherd Rescue and Adoptions (2001-02), The North Carolina Photographer's Annual Juried Show (19th, 20th, and 21st annual), club member of PSA and the SE3C (2001), Photographers Forum Annual Photography Contests (13th, 14th, 19th, 20th, and 21st annuals), Wilson Arts Councils "Most August" gallery Show (2000, 2001, and 2003), and am the founder and moderator of the Triangle Area Camera Society list-serve (TACS).
