The Georgia Coast. You know the beauty of it. Saint Simons Island. Jekyll Island and Driftwood Beach. Cumberland. Tybee. Wassaw. Georgia has 100 miles of beautiful coastline, with lots of barrier islands between the continent and the Atlantic Ocean. Maybe you are lucky enough to live here, or maybe you just get brief encounters with this relaxing peace when you come to visit. But you can enjoy photographs of it all year long, no matter where you are.
My goal is to bring that feeling of peace and relaxation to you, wherever you are. Sure, you have you cell phone photos of these beautiful places. But you can't print those on a 30" x 40" canvas to hang in your office, reminding you why you hustle and earn. You can't capture the Milky Way or the moon rising over the ocean from East Beach with your iPhone. Investing in photo art allows you to preserve and cherish the parts of the Georgia Coast you love best. Sunrises. Driftwood Beach. The lifeguard towers that dot your summer memories. Wishes you've made on shooting stars. Putting Georgia Coast photos on your wall will bring that feeling home with you.

I'm delighted and honored to be included in the latest issue of Analogue, a beautiful little publication by artist and wonderful human, Mandy Thompson. Each magical issue is full of journal excerpts, observances, stories and experiences, and tools to minimize the noise and get to the heart of your life: a field guide for the soul. In the upcoming issue, I share what question my artistic soul most seeks to answer, and how I try to find those answers through photography. Plus, the issue will come with a fun photo goodie.

I've been a busy bee with my duties as president of the Coastal Photographers Guild, a group of photographers who meet monthly on Saint Simons Island, Georgia. In January 2020, we will have an exhibit at the Horton Gallery, located in the Southeast Georgia Health System's Brunswick Campus.
If you're in the area and want to be involved in this group of incredibly talented and kind photographers, you should join us! We meet on the third Thursday of each month and have presentations on various topics by great speakers. In the past, we've had presentations on night sky photography, photographing pets, studio lighting, drone photography, and more. We have voluntary "homework assignments" and critiques based on the previous month's presentation, and we participate in contests and gallery exhibits throughout the year.
Georgia Coast Cyanotypes
Have you heard? Pantone announced the 2020 color of the year, and it's Classic Blue! You know what that means? Cyanotypes are on trend!!
My cyanotypes from the Georgia Coast are one-of-a-kind photos, using a printing technique from the 1800s, to enjoy the beauty of the wildscapes of Georgia. Combining digital photography with analogue printing techniques, I can create an image for you that no one else has. The chemicals, light, and photo negative will never appear in this exact way again. Check out this blog post about the cyanotype process, or see available cyanotypes for purchase.
