Hello there! Thanks for stopping by to check out my work. My greatest passion is photography, I just love everything about it. I truly feel this is what I placed here to do. I am a professional photographer based out of Church Hill, Tennessee. I am also a volunteer photographer for the National Park Service. My work has been published by National Geographic YourShot, Shutterbug Magazine, B & H Photography, Blue Ridge Outdoors, Landscape Photography Magazine and Smoky Mountain Living to name a few. Most all of my work is created by using natural light, I would say a good 90% of it.

I specialize in a vast array of different types of photography, landscape, nature, portrait, documentary and architectural.  I love having a variety and I love the different challenges each one brings. If you like the work I create, please head over to my Facebook and Instagram accounts. I post new content on each of these platforms regularly.

If you do see a photo on here you would like to purchase a print of, please head over to the contact page. Fill out the form and I will reach back out to you (usually within the day).

This adventure started off as a casual conversation about five days earlier while at work. I was talking to my buddies Scott and Justin, about going out to capture the sunrise in a place we had never been. I remembered a photo I had seen not too long ago of this view from Hawksbill Mountain looking down into the Linville Gorge with Table Rock in it. After showing them the image, they were up for going on this adventure. After some research, we found out that the trail name (just Hawksbill Trail) and what time we should leave to be able to hike up and catch the sunrise. Scott ended up not being able to go with Justin and myself.  

After a few days of stalking the weather and a hectic work week, it was finally time to go on this small adventure. I had to get up at 2:30 a.m., and I was meeting Justin in Elizabethton so that we could take one car from there. We arrived at the trailhead around 5:00 a.m., and we were surprised at how many vehicles were there. I assumed they were all there a...

For about a year now my buddy Toribio and I have been wanting to hike the Jump Off Trail. We had met Bob Carr after hiking out to Charlies Bunion, and he filled us in on the spot, we later saw his images and knew we needed to head out to this spot.

We started our hike at 2:30 a.m. at Newfound Gap along the Appalachian Trail in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. As a big guy, I much prefer hiking early in the morning as the temperature is always much lower. This part of the Appalachian Trail in the Smoky's is mostly uphill for the first two miles; it's rocky and full of roots as well. Once we made it to the Boulevard trail, it was just .1 miles to the Jump Off Trail, which looked nothing like a trail, but rather a scene from the Blair Witch Project.

The Jump Off Trail isn't much of a trail; it just seemed to be a creek bed that went down the ridge. Loose rocks covered the path the majority of the way, and certain parts of the trail didn't appear to be a trail. One section was en...

Bays Mountain Park and Planetarium is located in Kingsport, TN and is a local favorite, people come to hike and view wildlife exhibits. Bays Mountain does have a fee of $5 to get in or you can by a yearly pass. There are many great trails at Bays Mountain, the most popular being the Lakeside Trail, it goes along the edge of the lake for a 2.3 mile loop. Other popular trails include the Fire Tower Trail and the Pretty Ridge Trail, you can even hike into Lauren Run Park from Bays Mountain. The best time to go though, is Autumn. Bays Mountain Park and Planetarium is so beautiful in Autumn, the colors reflecting onto Bays Mountain Lake or along the trails are some of the best in the region. In our area, most people go to the Great Smoky Mountains to enjoy the color, but if you are wanting to avoid the big crowds or if you just want something closer to the Tri-Cities, Bays Mountain is your place.

My favorite place at Bays Mountain to take in the color is along the Lakeside Trail. You have a...
