My Biography and Experience

I am a freelance writer and photographer located in Bristol, VA. My work covers a little bit of everything, but my passion is finding the beauty in dark places. I like to look for the crumbling remains of history that most overlook and shine a little light on the beauty still there. I spend most weekends traveling the back roads and hiking. It's amazing what you can discover when you're not really looking for anything.

I'm currently working on my second photography booklet, "The Insider's Guide to Hiking in NE Tennessee". My first booklet is now online in my online store. I have published several articles on photography for a variety of websites and blogs. A list of these publications with links can be found under the "services" tab in the above menu. Follow me on Facebook to see my newest photos and news about upcoming projects: Midnight Nyx Photography.

My Gear

The most common question I get asked is what kind of camera do I use. I'm a Nikon girl at heart, but I'll use whatever I can get my hands on. My go to camera is a Nikon D3200 in red and I switch between 3 lenses: kit lens Nikkor 18-55mm, Nikkor 50mm F/1.8, and Sigma 70-300mm. I've been known to dabble with older film cameras and love developing images in a dark room.
