The hidden landscape, identifying the small things with big impact

About the Speaker

Hello! I am a Fine Art Landscape Photography in the mountains of Western North Carolina. Living in the quaint mountain town of Boone, I am immersed in the heart of old mountain culture and the incredible beauty of the High Country. With an undeniable passion for the outdoors, I enjoy exploring the remote reaches of the Western North Carolina wilderness and have spent the last 35 years connecting with the many rare moments of nature.

These days, I make my living as a Portrait Photography Artist and a Landscape Photographer, guide and teacher. These two pair well together, and allow me the freedom to pursue my passion of both. Exploring the backcountry and furthering my artistic vision is something I pursue every chance I get. It is something that will never end for me, only getting more and more refined as the years pass. 

I am very passionate about sharing these techniques and experiences with aspiring photographers looking to nurture their artistic vision and take their photography to the next level. It’s something I’ve wanted to do since the beginning and I am honored every time I get the call for a trip.

What you'll learn

Ever thought, ok so now I have the pictures, now what? Me too!  And we’re not alone, it happens to most. I teach folks every day that are stuck in the same place.  And if that wasn’t enough, there’s the lengthy retouching process.  Let’s face it, it’s a “process.”  I get it.

Why cover the process stuff?  It’s where it all starts. You want to get headed in the right direction. Lightroom and Photoshop seem daunting, but they don’t have to be.  There is an easy way with lots of impact.

I’ll show you how to plow through that obstacle and develop an easy and fast system to shoot, select and process your images.  All while saving a landscape and Fine Art portfolio. I’ll show you the easy way to expose the secrets in landscape photographs.  These are important elements of light and angle of view that you can use to enhance and elevate your composition.  If not, sometimes images can look forced or predictable
