I am a landscape, nature, and fine art photographer based in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. I’ve been serious about photography for a little over two years, and it has taught me quite a bit about myself. But the most exciting part to me is spending time exploring the state and national parks in North Carolina including the Blue Ridge Parkway, the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, the Outer Banks, and anywhere in between.
Even though I’ve lived in North Carolina for my entire life, I have seen so much more of my home state in the past two years than ever. The scenery here is fantastic.
I also like to travel to capture what the rest of the world has to offer. National Parks in the United States are a definite passion for me. I try to get to one park every year that I haven’t been to previously.
My Approach to Landscape Photography
I have always seen the world a little differently than others, and I hope this comes across in my photography. Photography is an art and a science. Standing in front of incredible vistas is just as exciting to me as getting to provide beautiful wall art and framed prints to others that share the appreciation of the world around us.
My goal is to present not only what I have seen in nature, but what those scenes make me feel. Often, emotions from my own life impact how I see or photograph what is in front of me.
It is my belief that decorating your home or office with nature photography is the best way to bring the beauty of the world into your daily life. Studies have also shown that spending just a few minutes looking at peaceful landscapes will lower your stress (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4690962/).
