About Me

I am in the emotion and transportation business. Every still photograph I make and video I shoot should allow you to feel the warmth of the sunrise, hear the waves and the shore birds or the explosion of fireworks over Banks channel…or hear nothing but the clouds move. I want you to feel what I felt when I stood there. I’m not interested in simply chronicling anything. I aim to transport you to a different place.

ABOUT ME

BACKGROUND

Creativity has always been in my blood. It was integral to my 20 year career as a marketing executive for a Fortune 500 company in Winston Salem, NC. It was not until my retirement in 2003 was I able to devote all of my creative energy to my passion for photography, and most recently videography. Combining my creative streak with my love for innovative marketing strategy has also allowed me to provide marketing consulting for several companies across the state. I currently work out of my home on the north end of the beach.
