Sunrise over the Blue Ridge Mountains!
What an incredible moment.  I sat here all alone as the darkness was overcome by the light, and warmth shortly followed.

I'm headed back to Western NC the first weekend in May for our Waterfall Workshop.  2 spots remain and we are running a 1 week special of 20% off right now if you want to grab one of the last spots.

I'm gearing up to go to Asheville this weekend.  Any must see location advice?

Spring in Charleston kicks off in 5 hours at the incredible Shem Creek and I'm really excited.  The weather has been excellent all week and the azaleas and spring flowers are primed and ready.

This year our event coincides with Bridge Run and so the whole town will be buzzing.  Hopefully we can escape a little from all the crowds and find some killer light.  It looks some interesting weather is moving in so it will be interesting.

Have a great weekend everyone!

"Above the Ridge-line"
Roan Mountain, Appalachian Trail - North Carolina/Tennessee Border

This was captured during the Winter Workshop in late February. We had a fantastic sunrise on top of the mountain and then quickly made our way down to a little coffee shop for breakfast and to warm up. We processed this using Lightroom and Silver Efex Pro in the classroom together.

I'm really looking forward to our Spring in Charleston Workshop this weekend. The weather has been cooperating nicely all week.  :)

Just off the Blue Ridge Parkway

All rivers start somewhere. This trickle had some gorgeous early morning light against lush rhododendron vegetation. Greenery everywhere.

Only one spot left for our Waterfalls of Western NC on May 2nd-4th. Don't miss out!

I'm so ready for warmer weather! You?

"What Once Was"
Sullivan's Island, SC

We just concluded the +Mountains To Sea Workshops  Spring in Charleston Workshop and it was a blast. Excellent conditions on Friday and Saturday and then some very challenging weather on Sunday morning. A great group of folks and some amazing images. I can't wait to see what the rest of the group came away with.

This one was from Sullivan's Island on Saturday evening after a fantastic day of photography.

Hope you enjoy!

I am an award winning fine art photographer and educator based in Charleston, South Carolina. I was born in Cape Town South Africa, and developed a love for both the ocean and the mountains at a young age. My thirst for adventure started early hiking and exploring Table Mountain and surfing the many beaches. Capturing and remembering this incredible world has always been my passion.
