I am a photographer based in the mountains of Western North Carolina. I was born and raised in the suburbs of Baltimore, MD. I started doing photography 4 years ago soon after I moved to the mountains. The move brought upon an urge to document all the interesting new things I was seeing. But shortly after I started, it became rapidly apparent that I was far more interested in the emotions, feelings and impressions I got from what I was seeing than documenting the things themselves. This lead me down a path of greater and greater degrees of stylization to where I am today. I use textures, blurring effects, controlled use of hue and saturation and heavy dodging and burning to try and give the viewer an impression of what it felt to be there on the day it was taken.
