I’ve always been interested in photography as far back as high school when I taught myself how to use manual settings for aperture, shutter speed, etcetera– there was something special about creating with film cameras before digital became mainstream; shooting one frame at a time and then developing the film and processing the images in the darkroom.
Shooting professional photos is an art form that takes time, effort, patience, creativity – and most importantly – skill.
Different types of photography require a variety in the equipment you use and it’s exciting to switch up the camera and lens type to create the image I want.
I shoot with three different cameras. Nikon D500, Nikon D300, and a Smartphone.
My favorite lenses are telephoto 200-500mm for nature shots or anything too far away, wide angle lens 10-20mm for interior photography (useful in HDR), 35mm or my 18-200mm is my go to for street photography. When capturing every detail I use a Micro 85mm.

It's hard for me to pass a nice bloom without pulling my camera out. My walks in West Asheville at the start of Spring were filled with blooming crocus.
I am lucky to have such a wonderful view – that I photo very often.
