“As a Law Enforcement Officer in Lumberton, and Asheville N.C., I have witnessed much of the seedier
side of life. Not all of it was bad; however, I rarely had time to stop and smell the roses, much less
take photos of them! I am proud to have served with my fellow officers and loved the job. ‘To Protect
and Serve’ was my life.
Since retiring, photography is the driving force in my life. It gives me a permanent and beautiful view
of life and love, adventure and travel, the wonders of nature, and a perspective on life that I had so
rarely experienced. My photography stems from the heart and produces a sense of peace and tranquility”.
I am an accomplished photographer now residing in Western North Carolina. The vast expanse of the
Blue Ridge Mountains and a keen eye for detail enables the capture of the most alluring
photographs available. My interest began at a young age which gave me the familiarity with film and
the “old school” approach as I continued honing my skills over the span of my career.
Most photographers attempt perfection, normally producing a somewhat stale image. Many times
the viewer can see the discomfort of the subject. Weddings, portraits, or highly scripted sessions are simply of
no interest to me. Also, I would never sully my talents by photographing any form of pornography.
Nature, social activity, and even food are intriguing subjects that allow a plethora of interpretations. Art
studios, as well as discerning homeowners have used my work to enhance their décor and stimulate
marketing. I am available for hire to photograph your desired subject with professional results. Corporate,
product advertisement, black & white, and vintage photo capture, are only a few of the avenues
that I have pursued. Presentation means everything these days. I can help you with that endeavor!

photographs to get an idea of my work.
