I am a life-long resident of Lexington County, in South Carolina. My professions have included, the U.S. Army (serving in Germany), licensed professional land surveyor, sales/customer service rep, and right-of-way agent with the SCDOT. In addition to photography, my hobbies include astronomy and landscape gardening. I decided to pay attention to my photography in 2009 at age 60. At the encouragement of family and friends, I began selling my images in late 2012 at Soda City Market in Columbia, SC. I hope my love of nature in all aspects can be seen in these images. I really enjoy sharing the stories of my photos with others, and listening to their stories as well. Most of my scenic photos are from SC and the Midlands, including nature, old buildings, historic sites, and astronomy related events. My images are in numerous private collections, displayed in 2 local hotels and have been published in local publications.
I am not a professional, that is, I do not do this for a living. I'm fortunate that folks trade their dollars for my images.
And I agree with pro shooter, Dewitt "Basic" Jones, in that "I am grateful that God has given me photography, as it allows me to pray with my eyes."
