Peaceful seas and a gentle breeze at Sunset
One of my favorite images! A huge hello and thank you to all of my several new followers, and great big thank you to all of my dear long term followers! I hope this image finds each of you safe and heppy and much hope for a safe and productive (drama free) work week!
On a side note, it has come to my attenton that several of my images are being used on other websites (business and personal). I need to take a moment to remind those individuals that my images are copyright protected and unauthorized use is prohibited by law. For those of you who want to use my image, you may surely do so provided you link the image back to my website and please give me credit as photographer (I would not steal your work, so please do not steal mine). If you want to purchase royalty free rights to use the images or want to purchase prints for your home or office: please see my About page for info on how to do that.
On the bright side: My school has bestowed upon my a Mimiya medium format camera with a digital back! So now, I need to find a few locations to shoot seascapes and landscape! If anyone if familiar with Coastal North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, and even Florida…please send me your suggested locations. I will do my best to get some of them uploaded for your enjoyment!
Thanks to every one of you for your time, suggestions, input, consideration, and suggestions! Have a safe week everyone!
And on the lighter side

Travel- Grandfather Mountain


This is the Mile High Swing Bridge located at Grandfather Mountain Park in North Carolina. The walking platform is actually one mile above sea level… hence the name. The park itself is a wonderful place to visit and hosts many events including a yearly nature photography contest. Please visit the parks website for schedules, events, and attractions.

Landscapes and Seascapes


The most peaceful feeling………
I posted a similar image in my blog already, but just could not decide which on I liked best…this has the sail boat sailing away from the sun, the previous image has it sailing into it (the benefit of being at the right place at the right time I guess!). Hope this one brings even warmer feelings for everyone.

Model Portfolio


Summer is here and shooting women’s fitness and swimwear is picking up. I shot this image for a local swimwear company and used the extremely fit and healthy Lindsay as the model for this image. And as it is summer, please be safe and used sunscreen protection! remember to hydrate (beer and alcohol don’t count). Models, when you show up for your photoshoot; do bring sunscreen, do bring cover ups, research the best makeup for your skin and for photography. Ariive on time (normally about 15 minutes early), and I always recommend using an MUA and a Hairstylist at every photoshoot. Good communication between you, the photographer, and all the photographic team makes the photoshoot fun, safe, and extremely productive! As always, stay safe out there!

Model: Lindsay
Location: Wrightville Beach, NC, USA
Equipment used: Nikon D700, Nikkor 70-200 2.8 lens, soft gold reflector.

As always, these images are for your veiwing pleasure by clicking on the image to get the High Res version. Thanks for visiting and come back often!


Landscapes and Seascapes


Decided to try this in black and white and see how the blogging world feels about it. We all know there is something magically calming and relaxing about the sound of falling water…like rain on a tin roof, a thatch over hang, simple water fountains, even large water features in the home or office send this soothing sound to those who will listen. I spent several hours here and never got tired of the gushing, flowing, and splashing of this amazing Triple Falls waterfall in the DuPont State Forest of North Carolina, USA.

Location: DuPont State Forest, NC, USA
Equipment used: Nikon D700, Nikkor 24-70 2.8 lens, Induro CT213 tripod, Induro BHD2 ballhead, ND filter.
Click on image: to view high res, share, and purchase options if you would like a print (all of my images in this blog are available the same way), although purchasing in not a requirement; it really does help support my travels to photograph these beautiful landscapes and seascapes and to bring them here for your viewing pleasure. Besides, they make great wall art for your home or office, you can even purchase them as puzzles, magnets, key chains, coffee mugs, and more.
Thank you all again for visiting, for your likes and follows! Please come back often!
