Appalachian Ridges Fade As Daylight Wanes (View from Jane Bald, Appalachian Trail, North Carolina; June 14, 2014)

From the early days of the camera obscura to modern digital photography today, the art of using technology to render a moment in time distinguishes itself among the visual arts. My passion lies in using this technology to create pictures that convey beauty, record history, tell stories, or simply provide people pleasure in looking at them.

In terms of subjects, I gravitate to fine art landscape and nature photography, but in the past few years portrait, commercial, and event projects have kindled a desire to provide photography for others. Visit my gallery page to see some of my work.

I am starting to dabble in the digital manipulation of photographs; that is, I might combine elements from more than one photograph to create new work that never existed in its own time and space. A few minor examples can be found in my Geek the Library gallery.
