Background

Holston River 2003.jpg

I began my journey into photography in late 1979. I've been furtunate enough to have had over 500 images published since then. After several years of art-show competitions, I now have photos in several corporate and private collections, including US Bank, First Community Bank, Pace University, and Wellmont Health System. Some corporate clients include The University of Tennessee, Carson-Newman College, Rockwell, TRW, East Tennessee State University, the Museum of Appalachia, and Ratliff Mandolin Company.
