What is exciting or interesting to you about your photo(s)? The Carolinas offer a wide range of natural beauty. From the mountains to the coastline, there are many opportunities to capture stunning images. Much of my work reflects the unique characteristics of South Carolina coastal living.

Can you tell us about any special equipment or techniques that you used? My equipment includes either a Canon 5d MIII, or a Canon 50d. I typically shoot with an EF 24-70mm or an EF 16-35mm. I also use a circular polarizing filter by B+W and will sometimes use a B+W ND filter for longer exposures. I almost always shoot from my tripod, which is a Manfrotto 190CX3 and a Manfrotto 322RC2 grip action ball head. In the "darkroom" I use Adobe CC, which is essentially PS and LR. I often will apply additional processing via Photomatix Pro and the Nik Collection. Love those programs!

What are you most proud of? Not sure pride is a component for me here but, if pressed, I'd say I do pretty well finding the right composition. Shooting outdoors offers a big canvas. Somewhere in all of that you have to "frame it up." I also enjoy the processing side as well. I don't really want to manufacture my own images by structurally changing them. I do like to get the most bang out them without going over the top.
