So . . . I hate the About Page on websites. Mostly because they're usually full of self-inflating babble and information no one really cares about. So I'm going to try and make this as simple and truthful as I can.
I'm a portrait, nature, and product photographer based in middle Tennessee. I've had a camera in my hands since my parents bought me one at the age of sixteen, and have been making images professionally since 2011.
Over the years, I've photographed just about everything, including people, sports, and photojournalism, even surviving the hectic demands of a newspaper stringer for a couple of years. As a result, I often think of myself as a generalist behind the camera. I've got the skills to tackle a diverse range of assignment work with an easygoing manner, a diligent work ethic, and an attention to detail.
The most important part of my life other than my faith is my family. My wife and I celebrated our 28th anniversary in 2022. Our son has a degree in audio production and is building a successful career as a music producer/audio technician. He's also getting married this year to a sweet girl he met in college. We love them both. And we have a goofy Mountain Cur named Sadie -- she's part of the family too. My family are the most important people in the world to me and I want them to always get my best.
Aside from that, I love nature and wild places. I treasure spending time in the outdoors with friends and family – fishing, hunting, photographing, and simply enjoying the view. I love to laugh. I enjoy having my mind stretched, but I love simple truths. I treasure good books, good movies, and good songs, because they make me want to be a better person. And I cherish good friends who will love me even when I am a loser and a screw up!
I believe in grace and mercy, and that everyone deserves a second chance, a smile, a kind word, and a friend. And that's the environment I try to create when I'm photographing people (which I still do). I want to put people at ease, I want them to feel valued, and I want our time together to be sublime. Yes, sublime.

So there you go. Those are the things that make me tick. I hope I get to meet you some day, and I'm really glad you took the time to look at my site.
