Welcome to PhotographyImages.com! I hope you are enjoying the images on the website. Please help us spread the word about the site by telling your friends about it.
My love for photography goes back to an early age of 11 when I was taught photography in the sixth grade. Tom Butler, a North Carolina artist, who is now known throughout the US for his flag paintings, taught the course and showed me the joy that you can have with a camera. I have been hooked on photography every since.
After the sixth grade, I studied photography on my own and became the year book photographer in high school. Two teachers there gave me the confidence I needed to pursue photography. Teachers can make an impact on students! After high school, I attended Randolph Technical College in Asheboro, North Carolina and got a degree in Photography Technology there.
I later opened a camera store and ran it until 1997. During that time I served as a member of the Professional Photographers of North Carolina and the Photo Marketing Association. I also developed products for the photography industry. Today I continue to offer professional photography services, custom websites & logo design, multimedia presentations, photo restorations, digital imaging and graphic design services. For more information on our services, visit: www.VisualSpecialties.com. Also feel free to contact me if I can ever help you with your custom photography or digital imaging needs.
Even though I have spent over 40 years photographing products, industries & people, one of my favorite things to do is to grab my camera and go out and photograph the beautiful scenes, wildlife, skies and other things around us. I know there is no way to capture the images as in real life, but I have given it my best shot. I hope you enjoy the images on this website as much as I enjoyed photographing them. Most of the prints shown on this website are available with a mat design to fit an 8 X 10, 11x14 or 16x20 frame or as 16"x24" Gallery Canvas Wraps ready to hang. Other sizes are available upon request. I also have a large number of images that are not on the site. Please contact me if you are looking for a specific subject for wall decor or for your stock needs.
