I've been carrying a camera into the woods since I was a teenager. To my great fortune, those woods were most often the Great Smoky Mountains. The cameras were tools I toted along on day hikes and backpacking trips in hopes of bringing back something of the experience with me. I wanted to capture and remember what it was like to be in those special places, far removed from daily life. As I learned from countless mistakes (and continue to do so) and my images improved, I learned that other people responded to those virtual "experiences." This website is my attempt to continue to share those moments with people I know, and with those whom I don't, in hopes that they may find the same joy and wonder I have found in those places.
