Story behind this image: This is a waterfall located in Bankhead National Park in Central Alabama. The name of the falls is Sougahougdee Falls. Yeah, so most locals call it Scooby Doo Falls. This particular images was several exposures blended together in Photoshop in order to retain a proper exposure throughout the image.

How would you describe your style?

This is hard for me to do. I’m sure I have a style, I just don’t know how to describe it. If I had to, I guess I’d say it’s conservative with a hint of “on the edge”. Wait, did that make any sense?

What’s your approach to post processing?

It’s a simple approach. I like to spend more time behind the camera than behind the computer, so I utilize presets and plugins often.


Story behind this image: This image was made in a little oyster community near Apalachicola, Florida called Eastpoint. These oyster boats litter the shoreline and await their captains for an early morning launch. This image was made moments before sunrise. The sky really put on a show that morning.

What or who inspires you?

Seeing great images inspire me. It could be on a TV commercial, billboard, photography magazine, book or online. It doesn’t matter the photographer so much as the image that inspires me.


Story behind this image: I am an avid HDR photographer. I know those three letters tend to start a war, but I have embraced and enjoyed it. This shot was taken on a friend’s property near Mobile, AL. The story goes it was a daily driver until a few years ago. When it quit running, it was parked here and not touched again.

What gear do you use?

Canon bodies, Canon and Tamron Lenses and Vanguard Tripods and bags.
