Photography is very much about light, not just good or bad lighting, but the infinite range of light and its impact on everything. Sunlight, as it touches, radiates the fronds of maiden grass is fascinating. I love reflected light on water surfaces, especially the dancing light on the nearby North Toe River.
I studied documentary photography at Penland School of Crafts with Asheville photographer Ralph Burns, as my wife, Billie Ruth, taught basketry there. This encouraged the display and presentation of my work in several venues.
