To me photography is about connecting with nature and sharing all that it has to offer through the images it allows me to create. Like so many other people I have always been drawn to the Smoky Mountains. Even as a child I was moved by their natural beauty, unique landscape and incredible biodiversity. Now that these mountains are my home, I have come to understand and appreciate them even more. They continue to inspire me season after season – year after year.My hope is that the images and information I share will encourage you to take the time to visit new places and gain a better understanding of nature. I hope you will begin to look a little closer and make a connection with the natural world around you. And that you will be inspired to create more photographs to share with and inspirit others.I hope the understanding and connection you make with nature will lead to an awareness of your responsibility to protect our environment. And that you along with the others you have inspired will take part in the conservation of our planets natural habitats.
