I’m a photographer based in Madison County, Virginia. I got my first camera after my freshman year in college and started photographing for my college yearbook (Colonial Echo at William and Mary) soon after that. After college, I photographed weddings for a while, until life got in the way. I picked up a camera seriously again not long after digital came along. I now photograph just about anything BUT weddings. Recent interests include larger than life prints on buildings, and much smaller than life tintype/wetplate photographs. I seem to be comfortable in a world of opposites……large vs small, state of the art digital vs 1850’s wetplate.
“…..if you feel safe in the area you are working in, you are not working in the right area. Always go a little farther into the water than you feel capable of being in. Go a little bit out of your depth and when you don’t feel that your feet are quite touching the bottom, you’re just about at the right place to do something exciting.” –David Bowie
Current projects have included some very large prints for Firnew’s recents shows, as well as learning the process of tintype or wetplate photography.
