I’m a professional photographer and visual storyteller with more than seventeen years of experience working with businesses, both large and small as well as publications from around the world. I grew up in Columbia, South Carolina where I split my childhood between my parent’s photo studio/lab and running around the woods of my grandparent’s 40-acre farm. It was this time that founded my love of photography, the outdoors, and the Carolina sunshine.
After several years of living the life of a nomad while attending the photojournalism program at Western Kentucky University and participating in summer internships around the country I found my way back home to the Midlands of South Carolina. Once again I found myself in the Carolina sunshine surrounded by the people and places I loved, as I embarked on a successful career as a freelance photojournalist. Over the next decade-and-a-half I was fortunate enough to have a client roster that included some of the largest news organizations in the world which included: USA Today, The Associated Press, Sports Illustrated, Newsweek, The New York Times, and The Washington Post.
Today, I create photos and tell stories based on active outdoor lifestyles for clients in the travel, tourism, outdoor, hunting, fishing and shooting industries. I call Lake Murray in Lexington County, SC home along with my wife McKenzie, and our rescue dog boomer. No matter how far I travel, or what adventures I may encounter along the way it is great to return home to somewhere familiar where I can enjoy enjoy my own outdoor adventures all year long.
