The Carnegie Free Library in Pittsburgh, PA

I found this photo that I had taken at the Triangle Photography Institute and had forgotten about. I "jazzed " it up a little and thought it was cool enough to share.....

Exhibit coming up...

The Nature Conservancy is having a nationally traveling exhibit showing at the Charleston Clay Center starting Sept. 16th, 2006 with works from 12 renowned photographers including Annie Leibovitz and William Wegman capturing the rich and complex splendor of some of the "Last Great Places."
Starting Oct.1st, in conjunction with this exhibit, Myself and several other well known photographers from WV will be putting our work on exhibit with local Charleston galleries.
I am not "slighting" any other photographers by not mentioning them here; I was not given a list of names as I was just invited to show.
4 peices from my "Glimpse Of Appalachia" exhibit will be hung at the Art Emporium- located downtown Charleston on the corner of Hale and Virginia Streets.
This is for a great organization and a great cause - you can find out more about the nature conservancy by click on

Still a Fujifilm Talent Team Member

I am pleased to announce that Fujifilm has renewed my status as a "Fujifilm Talent Team Member" for the 2007 year!
There are specific professional requirements that have to be met as well as a certain level of professionalism to be considered for the team -of which I have been a member for several years.
But with the changing photography industry, requirements were even tighter this year than in previous years. I am happy to say that after a brief interview - I am still a part of the team!
Here's to a great year!

PPWV Speaker News

Thought I'd share some exciting news. I have been asked to be a speaker at the Professional Photographers of West Virginia Spring Convention for 2007.
I will be discussing equipment considerations for the field, compositional technique, and insights into how I get the images I do.
Should be a lot of fun!
I don't have the actual dates yet - That is supposed to all be in "the packet" I'll get when all this is finalized.
