Thanks for visiting my page and coming over to learn a little more about me. I am a self-taught photographer based in south central Oklahoma, nestled between the towns of Sulphur and Davis. I grew up here living between two beautiful parks, the Turner Falls Park in Davis and the Chickasaw National Recreation Area (CNRA) in Sulphur (perhaps you’ve seen our quarter dollar). My interest in photography began around the age of 14 when I was inspired from traveling across the United States with my parents. I would take photos of everywhere we went and bring them back home to share. I loved people’s reactions to seeing places they had never been and then wanting to go visit these places themselves.
Growing up as a young boy in a rural area and surrounded by a hardwood forest I developed a great love for nature and the outdoors lifestyle. I’d spend all my free time roaming though the woods exploring and observing wildlife. As I grew older I found I had a talent for art. I would spend hours during school learning different media and expanding my creative mind. Fast forward a few years, I started to use what I learned painting and drawing to apply my own unique artistic touch to my photography.
Once I made my way into and through college, East Central University, I received a B.S. in Biology focusing on Wildlife Ecology. I have always been amazed by the diversity of the geology, flora and fauna across the country, my degree helped me to better understand it. While in college I often volunteered many hours helping with The Nature Conservancy and developing a good standing relationship with preserve managers. Additionally, I've spent several years as an active member with the Arbuckle Karst Conservancy where I helped study and protect the Arbuckle Simpson Aquifer and the cave/karst features associated with it. Still to this day my passion for the outdoors continues as strong now as it has ever been.
As a photographer, I strive to capture the beauty of nature I see in the world and share it the way I perceive it. I am a member The North American Nature Photographers Association, and the Artists of the Arbuckle’s. I have been a featured artist at the Chickasaw Nation / CNRA Visitors center and the Exhibit C Gallery in Oklahoma City. My work can be found regularly at the Jean Carr Gallery, where I have been awarded Best of Show 2016, 2017 annual Photo Expo, as well as the ARTesian Gallery. Both galleries can be found in Sulphur, OK.
