farmstead in fog
I’m a commercial photographer based in Greensboro, North Carolina, with over 35 years of experience shooting professional advertising and editorial images.
Although my photography business is based out of Greensboro, I am a Randolph County native and live on my family’s 150-acre beef cattle farm on Routh Road in Grays Chapel. A lot of my personal and art photography is done near my home, featuring family, friends, neighbors and local scenes. I seek to document the rural society and landscape of my community before a lot of the local traditions are lost by urban encroachment. I grew up as the son of a dairy farmer/teacher and worked on the dairy until I left for UNC and a degree in Cultural Anthropology and then Photography at Randolph Community College. My wife and I have two sons (and a daughter-in-law) and we still work the farm, raising cattle and chickens, along with an extensive vegetable garden.
