ABOUT

I photograph the night sky

I am a landscape photographer from Florence, SC who specializes in night-scape images. I began photography as a hobby in my late teens using a full manual film camera my Dad gave me. In the past few years I has taken my hobby to a new level with landscape astro-photography.

I try very hard to capture images of the night sky that others may never get a chance to see. My images feature the Milky Way, Moon, planets, constellations and various other stars. Living on the East Coast of the United States often makes finding dark skies a challenge.

I am a husband and a father of 3 very active boys as well as a full-time law enforcement officer.
