Anyone that has photographed with me knows that creeks and streams are a passion of mine! I can spend hours upon hours photographing the streams as it meanders over the rocks. More than half the time you’ll find me in the middle of the creek as I find that being in the middle allows me to capture a more dynamic image and perspective. Water is something that gives me spiritual refreshment. The sounds are very meditative and relaxing, and it helps me to find my harmony.
I think that’s one reason I truly enjoy working in the GSMNP because it has some of the most pristine streams with truly intimate settings.

Zach and I just got home from teaching a workshop in stunning Colorado and what a great time it was! All of our workshops are intense learning experience for everyone and for us it’s no less than an awesome adventure!
Before our workshop started Zach and I thought we would visit Crystal Mill and I can honestly say it was the most adventurous road we have ever driven. When people tell you, it’s a rough road and only a four-wheel-drive vehicle will make it is certainly an understatement (lol). We had a new 2016 Toyota 4Runner with high clearance and believe it or not it was a challenge for that. Of course it had stock tires and would’ve been much better equipped if it had some nice all terrains on it. The weather was a little undecided and was pouring the snow down in the mountains which allowed me to capture slightly more drama than the typical mill shot.
All in all, it was a tremendous adventure and I look forward to the next one 🙂
