I really don't like About pages on websites. Mostly because they often sound like self-inflating, ego-babble. Personally, I don't like Piña coladas, although I do occasionally like getting caught in the rain. ;-)

Seriously though, I'm a lifelong photographer now based in Middle Tennessee, I’ve been working as a commercial and editorial photographer for five years.

I often describe myself as a generalist behind the camera, with the ability to comfortably execute a wide range of assignment work. I'm proficient with off-camera lighting, and have a style that's dramatic, vibrant, textured, and rustic.

I have a nomadic work background (including work as a minister, forester, meat-cutter, photojournalist, and digital archivist, to name a few) which enables me to understand and relate to people in all walks of life. I combine a strong attention to detail with a caring sensitivity that puts people at ease. This enables my shoots to be both productive and fun.

My role is to find what a client is passionate about and work with them to convey their passions to their customers in a way that's engaging and authentic.

I regularly write posts for my own blog as well as the occasional guest post for other blogs, and articles for online and print magazines.

I’ve been happily married to my wife LaCresha for 22 years. Our 21 year old son Nathan is currently in college preparing for a career in the music industry, and our geriatric Labrador Retriever Buddy keeps us all company.
