Began photographing wildflowers@of the Blue Ridge mountains of western Virginia and North Carolina in the 1970s, then became a photojournalist in 1984. Served as assistant photographer of the Grandfather Mountain Highland Games for six years, under the legendary Hugh Morton. I photograph anything that strikes my eye, especially nature. Nikon shooter until 2015, when I switched to a Sony a6000. No regrets!
