Photo Story: Dirty Don's

The Myrtle Beach Boardwalk is a fun place to hang out during the summer, but my favorite time has always been the "shoulder season". The month just before and after the busy summer season is a great time to walk the Boardwalk because the weather is still warm but the...

Photo Story: A Different Kind of Rock

I'm always on the lookout for something different. A different angle to shoot a photo or a different position to capture a waterfall. Maybe some different colors during sunset. But this one time while exploring the Deep Creek area at the Great Smoky Mountains National Park I found a different...

Photo Story: I'm Looking at You

When I picked up my first 35mm film camera with the purpose of learning photography I had a lot of fun. I would carry that little camera along with a few rolls of film with me to class, to the beach, and every where I went with my friends. Everything...

Photo Story: The Thunderous Bald River Falls

I almost didn't make it to the Bald River Falls. I was in one of those positions where I didn't have precise GPS navigation, and the directions I was given had taken me to a point about two miles behind me. I was just about ready to turn around when...

Photo Story: The Art of the Silhouette

Silhouettes are a beautiful thing. If captured properly they are crisp and full of detail, and yet mysterious and simplistic. But they are also difficult to capture, which just makes them that much more valuable and rare and is just one of the reasons I love them so much. The...

Photo Story: Powell Valley Drama

The Powell Valley Overlook in Norton, Virginia has always been one of my favorite overlooks in Southwest Virginia. I've been here at sunrise, sunset, clear starry nights, and heavy thunderstorms. But never had I seen such drama as the day I wasn't even supposed to be there, but took advantage...

Photo Story: Getting Out in the Wild (Sort Of)

I'm not going to even pretend I am a wildlife photographer. Instead, I'm more of an outdoor photographer in locations where wildlife happens to find me. Don't get me wrong: I would love to spend some time specifically shooting wildlife photographer, but it's gonna be awhile before I can follow...
