Donna’s moment

I plan on offering prints for sale very soon, and I’ve been selecting images from my archives for printing. This is one that caught my eye, not so much because it’s a good pic of the Outlaws’ Chris Anderson and Hughie Thomasson, but because my friend Donna Smith is in it. Donna was behind the […]

I could use your help

I haven’t entered a photo contest since the early seventies.   Until now.   PDN, which stands for Photo District News, is an influential magazine for professional photographers. PDN is having a photo contest called Ultimate Music Moment 2012. I’ve entered the photo below that I first posted here on April 7th. This is where you […]

Zac Brown was front and center

If Zac Brown was front and center, then why does he look so much like Clay Cook? Basically, because I was at the concert as a guest of Blackberry Smoke, who opened the show. While no one told me I couldn’t shoot the Zac Brown Band, no one exactly gave me permission either. During Zac’s […]

Storm clearing over Grandfather Mountain

  All you gotta do to enjoy this view is hike 2 1/2 miles from the Blue Ridge Parkway up the side of a mountain, and then climb a fire lookout tower. I was huffin’ and puffin’ by the time Mitzi and I reached the top of the trail on Sunday. Then it started to […]

Hughie’s stance

  On the fourth anniversary of his passing, I thought I’d post one of my all time favorite pics of Hughie Thomasson. I shot this in 2006 at the Lyric Theater in Stuart, Florida. Some of you may have seen it previously. I think I may have posted it briefly on the message boards of […]
