“Without a doubt, Singh-Ray filters have changed my photography more than anything else in my bag. Some say they are too expensive; I say you get what you pay for. Why buy expensive, high-quality lenses and then put a cheap filter on it?”



My passion for photography began at a very young age when my Mother gave me my first camera, the Kodak Brownie Hawkeye - and I haven’t been without a camera since that day. In recent years I have gravitated back to my love for B&W and find that I spend more time making images in B&W and using ND filters to create long exposures.

I’m a self-taught professional photographer residing in Pawleys Island, South Carolina, known for its beautiful beaches, pristine marshes and wetlands. My writings and photography have appeared in several magazines, websites, galleries as well as calendars, roadside kiosks, tide chart, billboards and many private collections.

I started and still moderate “The Inspired Photographer” group on Facebook and in 2014 created the local “Cameras for Kids Foundation” chapter in South Carolina, teaching young kids in long-term foster care the joy of photography.

I’m the staff photographer at Hobcaw Barony, which is a beautiful 16,000-acre research and nature preserve where I guide photo safaris and provide private photography workshops.
