I have always been in love with the Blue Ridge and Great Smoky Mountains of western NC. Growing up we vacationed here many times. During these family vacations I would eagerly snap photos of the expansive views with whatever camera I could get my hands on. Unfortunately these snapshots never conveyed the magnificent beauty I could see with my eyes. As an adult, and as a hobby, I set out on a quest to learn my way around a camera. What started as a hobby has quickly become an obsession. While I still can't classify myself a "professional" (as this is not how I make my living), I think my work has improved. Now I'd like to share my accomplishments with you! I hope that you enjoy viewing these images as much as I have enjoyed capturing them!
