Born and reared in Harrison, Arkansas, my spirit flows through the Ozarks. I have family roots in the Buffalo River area that go back more than 100 years.
I grew up sitting in the darkroom with my grandfather, Richard Scarsdale, so he naturally holds the greatest influence over my work. Other inspirations that I must credit are Ansel Adams, William McNamara, Tony Sweet, and many more!
I would pretty much consider myself a self-taught photographer, aside from sitting in my grandfather’s darkroom, pouring over countless Ansel Adams books, and stumbling upon Bill McNamara painting a waterfall in the Upper Buffalo Wilderness Area. Slowly but surely, I continue to learn how to use my camera to capture the wondrous musings that light plays upon the landscape. I hope that you enjoy my work 1/10th as much as I have enjoyed capturing it!
