I am humbled and honored to have been selected to be a featured artist as a part of Southgate Brand Food’s “The Discovery Of Art” showcase!  As part of the program my photographic art will appear on over ONE MILLION cans of chili! Southgate’s chili is packaged locally by Vietti Foods here in Nashville.

The cases of chili arrived this week and we had a little fun opening and photographing them as you can see below.

The image that is highlighted on the can is entitled “Tumbling Waters” you can view it on my image website HERE.

I had my eye on this Gingko tree for several days before the right conditions presented themselves for this photograph. The tree fairly glowed in the heavy fog at sunrise and I had only a few minutes to set up and get the image. Within 5-6 minute the fog burned off and this special moment was gone.

I spent several mornings this summer photographing in a field of sunflowers. I arrived at sunrise and wandered among them looking for different compositions. After spending an hour or so going for the obvious images, I would  begin to seek out images that challenged my thinking and revealed aspects of the flowers that was a bit different.

Late this November, after a long day of photography in North Alabama, I packed up my gear, hoisted my pack and began the hike to my car. I had not gone far along the river bank when I noticed these maple leaves. They were on a small sapling growing out from the boulders near the rivers edge. I stopped, dropped my pack and set up the tripod again. The right composition wasn’t readily visible and I found myself working around the leaves until I settled on this composition. Sometimes just telling myself that I am done for the day releases my creativity and I see images I might otherwise have walked past. Often I find that I start back down the trail and spot something else to photograph over and over again all the way back. A thirty minute hike can turn into an hour and a half without even being aware of the passing of time.

You know you are doing something you love when you can’t stop. No matter how tired and hungry you are….
