Coastal Adventures

Winter Workshop – Boone, NC

Is there anything better than great light and a snow covered scene.  Maybe a little fog in the valley and mist all around. 🙂

The above shot was captured on the last day of the Mountains to Sea Workshops Winter Workshop in Boone North Carolina.

The entire week before I carefully watched the weather and I was psyched […]

Bulls Island Expedition

On days like this when the rest of the world is bracing for the onslaught of winter weather, I relish the warmth of the coast and the remote islands around the low country. This island, Bulls Island is 5,000 acres of dense maritime forest, miles of hiking trails and fresh water ponds teeming with […]

Washed Away – Bulls Island

A few weeks ago I found myself riding in the back of a government owned pickup truck leading a group on a sledge, safari style through the maritime jungles of Bulls Island. We were hunting dark skies and had arrived early to see the wildlife and capture sunset in the boneyard. The amount of […]

Iridescence – Tremont, GSMNP

On our last day during the Mountains to Sea Workshop around the Great Smoky Mountains, we headed to Cades Cove to hunt bears and some gorgeous light. We got lucky catching lots of animals and several bears. There was tons of gorgeous light spilling into the valley as well.

After an excellent morning […]

Star Gazer

A self portrait captured over Price Lake off the Blue Ridge Parkway. I was whipped after a very long day leading a class, but conditions were so perfect I had to check out this spot. It was the perfect place to relax and unwind.

Smoky Mountain Gold

It’s been a couple of weeks since I’ve returned from the Smoky Mountains. It was my first trip to Gatlinburg, and I’m really glad that we travel early and late. That place is a zoo. Traffic is insane. It probably didn’t help that we went there during one of the […]

Green Meteor Over Price Lake

I just got back from Boone where we held our Mountain Astrophotography Workshop. Despite cloudy and rainy forecasts our group stuck it out and where richely rewarded with almost totally clear skies for several hours on Saturday night. We had a blast capturing the stars and playing with different compositions and light. […]

Schoolhouse Falls, Panthertown Valley

This spring our waterfall crew hiked down in the darkness to this little gem at the bottom of a ravine. Tommy and I had scouted it a couple of days prior and discovered a fantastic campsite nearby. Some folks were making the most of the campsite and we later discovered they had just gone […]

A few weeks back I had the distinct pleasure of taking a client to Botany Bay for a stormy sunrise. We had a blast negotiating the trees and surf and geting wet capturing really moody images. I’ve been so busy that I barely have had time to look through these images and […]

Stark, Smooth Blues & Heaven Above – Private Workshop Charleston SC

On Thursday evening and Friday morning I had the distinct pleasure of taking a client and new friend Tricia Booker out to photograph some of my favorite locations in and around Charleston.  We started off with a light dinner and discussion on filters and long exposures at one of Sullivan’s Island’s hot spots.  After […]
