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 would be great if I were to get into the habit of posting more photography. The truth is, I shoot so often… on mostly a tight deadline. That I rarely find that extra time to sort though and pull out those unquie photos that I capture day-to-day.

There is something so beautiful about the Hibiscus drying bloom. The textures and tones that happen as the bloom darkens. Capturing the motion of time as each bloom (typically) stands for one-day. As the bloom drys out a new set of values are established. Transfer to...

CrownMy SkinI See YouDisconnectYou Nailed ItThe rooster's beauty is no less than that of a peacock, but sadly he doesn't get the same appreciation. For The Farm-to-Table Series I wanted to show a different perspective by showcasing the subject using texture, color,...

Kite Flyer Photography by Gary CrosseyTHE KITE FLYER - is one of my favorite photos. Everything about this photo feels good to me. If I were to have planned this photograph, I could not have staged it any better. The yellow shorts against the dark sky is so prefect.
I am not typically a sun person. So, I especially enjoy going to the beach at night. It always surprises me how few people go on a beach at night. The entire beach is normally quite empty. The light on the beach at night is also quite usual. Unlike a few hundred feet...
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.
