About Me

I AM GARY
HELLO THERE!

First of all...I want to thank God for the artistic ability He has blessed me with to create His majestic beauty through the lens of my camera...to inspire others to venture out and explore our world...God has given His creation to each of us to enjoy...and we must take great care of the natural beauty of Mother Earth before She vanishes away like a vapor into the wind.

Based in Fletcher, North Carolina among the Blue Ridge Mountains...my interest in Photography developed in the 1980's when I ordered a package with a Minolta film camera...kit lenses and a tripod...then I went off to create anything that I thought was beautiful...unique...or different...the rest as you can see from my galleries is history.
So I hope you enjoy your visit here for a little while and come back often.

The camera gear used to capture these images consisted of...Canon 14MP point and shoot...Canon 7D 18MP...Canon 50mm f/1.4...Canon 24-105mm f/4...Canon 70-200mm f/4...Tokina 12-24mm f/4...INDURO Carbon Fiber Tripod with Really Right Stuff BH-55 Ballhead...Hoya Circular Polarizer Filter...Cokin Neutral & Graduated Filters...and SanDisk Compact Flash Cards.
