SALES AND NEWS
I do my own printing and shipping from this site and keep it simple. No framing or matting, and the sizes generally run from 5 x 7 to 12 x 18, plus a few even larger prints. I do, however, take special care to make sure every print is right. I use long lasting Epson Ultrachrome K3 inks and print on very high quality luster or satin papers. If you see anything here on this website that I haven't listed over on Etsy, just send me a message and I will list it for you to consider (no obligation to purchase).
I've recently added some work to Fine Art America (FAA). FAA handles all the printing and shipping. Larger prints are available here, and you have the option of matting and/or framing the work as well as getting the image on canvas. As with Etsy, if you see anything here on this site that you might want to purchase on FAA, just send me a message and I will list it at no obligation to you.
I now have some stock images available via Getty Images and look forward to having more accepted there. My photos on Getty are here. Feel free to contact me if you would like to use images not yet offered by Getty.
SOME OF MY FAVORITE LINKS
Lane Photo Workshops – Five years ago at one of their workshops Bill and Linda Lane managed to get me to switch the dial off of automatic and to put my camera on top of a tripod, something for which I'll always be grateful. They do 8 field workshops mostly in the Virginias plus one in North Carolina and one in the Smokies. The friendly atmosphere of the workshops is comfortable for beginners, but flexible enough that the more experienced will take something useful away too. Very well-researched and scouted locations plus at least some of Linda's tasty home cooking is available at all workshops.
Carolinas' Nature Photography Association (CNPA) - Approximately 1200 North and South Carolina nature photographers of all skill levels. Ten local chapters who do outings and monthly meetings. They do a great annual meeting with speakers like Art Wolfe and Franz Lanting as well as at least one mid-year outing in a prime photo location.
Frame Destination - If you don't have a good local framer, this is a fast, reasonably priced source for custom framing. Good "how-to" videos posted on their website.
Dick Blick Art Supplies - A source of ready made frames to fit a large variety of photos, including the sometimes hard to find 8 x 12 size. They have Neilson Bainbridge frames (simple, reasonably well-made) as well as their own brand.
Les Saucier, Appalachian Journeys - Lives in western North Carolina. Does workshops in a number of locations. Excellent teacher and speaker. Check out his photos and other services.
Jeffrey Stoner - I happened to run into Jeffrey Stoner photographing along the Blue Ridge Parkway and looked up his website when I got home. He has made some wonderful images of the Grayson and Roan Mountain highlands, old mountain cabins and other buildings, and some very cool infrared and winter photography.
The Nature Conservancy - I think their "big tent" approach and willingness to work with a wide spectrum of interests is effective. Plus they've had the good taste to use some of my photos on their various websites!
