"Photojournalists capture the raw images of history." - TLH

Everyone has a story, and I help share those stories through my images.

Hello. I am an award-winning, independent photojournalist certified by Nikon Professional Services with 40 years of newspaper, magazine, and broadcast (television and radio) experience based in Southern Pines, N.C.

Along the way, in this incredible photographic journey, I have developed lasting relationships and mutual trust with my clients, allowing me access to their lives and the ability to share their experiences.

Since 1980, my photojournalism images have appeared in commercial newspapers and magazines throughout the U.S., European, and Asian publication markets. Some of these include the Wall Street Journal, The Guardian (UK) Time, People, US Weekly, Sports Illustrated, and USA Today. Additional image placements include military publications, online media outlets, and broadcast television shows, including Jimmy Kimmel Live and E! Entertainment Television.

Throughout my civilian photojournalism career, my images have received multiple awards from the Associated Press, Georgia, North Carolina, and Virginia press associations.

My military photojournalism awards include three-time Dept. of Defense, four-time U.S. Army, and five-time U.S. Army Reserve Civilian Journalist of the Year.

ZUMA Press represents my freelance images, and I am also a contract photojournalist for The Pilot newspaper and Pinestraw Magazine in Southern Pines.

From 1982-1987, I served in the U.S. Air Force as an Intelligence Analyst specializing in strategic, tactical, and ground reconnaissance.

WORKSHOPS and TRAINING PROGRAMS:
I have served as an instructor at the Atlanta Photojournalism Seminar (2010) and other military photojournalism seminars from 2010 to the present.
