I am an award winning photographer for the Pulitzer-Prize winning Bristol Herald Courier in Bristol, Virginia. I first worked here in the mid-80's. Then went south for a stint as a Cruise Ship Photographer. Working there helped me refine my skills on working with people in photographs. Several years later, I am back in newspapers again at the Herald Courier.
Daily I photograph features, sports, news and pretty much everything. Even in a small town there is always something or someone to photograph. The events may be the same every year but the people always change.
