Have a Question, concern or just want to say hi?  Contact me.

There is much to see around Middle Tennessee and nearby communities: waterfalls, skyscrapers, historic sites, barns, courthouses and the list goes on.  If it's in Middle Tennessee, there's a good chance I've been there with my camera.  Now that I have been at this for several years, I have put together an image collection representing every county in Middle Tennessee, as well as other nearby places not too far away, such as East and West Tennessee, Kentucky and northern Georgia and Alabama.

Whether you too are a photography enthusiast, have an interest in what's nearby or local history, or perhaps you just stumbled across this website because I have what you googled, I hope you enjoy your stay! This website isn't really meant to be a vacation guide - those guides always recommend the same places, and I too have been to those places, such as Opryland Hotel, Fall Creek Falls or the Jack Daniels Distillery. Instead, in addition to the widely known places, I've been to many of the lesser-known hole-in-the-wall places, places that time forgot, and the places in between.

Have a use for one of my photos?  I've had photos published in several places and on hundreds of websites  Feel free to contact me and we can work something out. 

Need to hire a photographer for your wedding, baby or your portrait?  I'm not the guy for you, but I have several friends who I think will do a good job.

What do I enjoy beyond the scope of this website?

I am a Christian.  I attend Stewarts Creek Church of Christ in Smyrna, TN.  I am married.  My wife and I have had a couple dogs, a couple rabbits and numerous birds (Parakeets, Cockatiels and Ringneck Doves) and many tarantulas.  Hobbies include collecting Post Cards, Foreign Coins, finding unusual sodas, and rooting for the Texas Rangers baseball team. I take pictures of Ranger minor leaguers when they come to play the Nashville Sounds.
