Thank you for visiting my newly updated site.  It's an important component of my continuing photographic pursuits and conservation advocacy and will support better integration of the two for some exciting projects now in the works.  

And speaking of exciting—watch for my new book this year titled, Rocky Fork: Hidden Jewel of the Blue Ridge Wild.  It's scheduled for release this spring and tells the story, through both narrative and photography, of the long struggle to save the revered Rocky Fork watershed from senseless destruction.  Please contact me soon if you would like to reserve a personalized copy.  

Also, I am now booking multimedia presentations for 2017.  These have proven to be popular in recent years with civic, outdoor recreation and conservation groups, as well as churches and schools.  While all of my programs center on the natural wonder and vital importance of our southern Appalachian Mountains, I will gladly tailor my presentation to your specific group when it is booked at least 60 days in advance.  The program fee is reasonable and when necessary can be based on a group's financial means. Donation arrangements are also possible.

Thanks again for checking out the new site.  Please visit regularly to discover new images and learn about the important conservation work going on in the Blue Ridge region.  See you in the mountains!   —DR
