• “To me, photography is an art of observation. It’s about finding something interesting in an ordinary place… I’ve found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them.”

Bio

Although my photography business is based out of Greensboro, North Carolina, I am a Randolph County native and live on my family’s 120 acre beef cattle farm on Routh Road in Grays Chapel. A lot of my photography is done near my home, featuring family, friends, neighbors and local scenes. I grew up as the son of a dairy farmer/teacher and worked on the dairy until I left for UNC and a degree in Cultural Anthropology, and then Photography at Randolph Community College. My wife and I have two sons (and 2 daughters-in-law) and we still work the farm, raising cattle and chickens, along with an extensive vegetable garden.

Growing up in a rural farming community has had a profound effect on what and how I shoot. I have created a personal project of documenting my local community and the people that live and work in it. Many of those folks are farmers, or like myself have at least been raised to be. Because of this background in agriculture I have a special affinity for shooting farms and farmers, and understand who they are and what they do.  If you have or are an ag client, give me a shout out. I’d love to work for you. Course, I’d love to shoot your other projects as well.
