BEHIND THE LENS

I took up photography in 1972 and it has been a life long passion ever since. As the saying goes, "a picture (or in this case a photo) is worth a thousand words". I strive to tell a person's story through their portraits. I take a very personal approach to portraiture photography. Portraits should reflect the personality of person, something that cannot be done with standard "cookie cutter" poses. I will do portraits either in a the studio or on location to best suit the client.

I am perhaps somewhat of a "throwback" because I still enjoy shooting on film, though mostly in black and white nowadays. 

On this site you can also see many other images from other photographic genres. Look under the Additional Images button on the Galleries page

I am originally  from Raleigh, NC. I moved around a lot in my 20+ year in the military and lived in northeast Florida and the Florida panhandle for over 30 years. I now call Pawleys Island, SC home.
