I am winding down all of my visits for my state park digital textbook, and I have shot a LOT of footage all over this beautiful state. I put together a video with some of the highlights that I have embedded below. I have another version that I did for the state of Georgia that […]
On the way to watch Tennessee beat Florida for the first time in 11 years (Hallelujah!) we drove up through the N. Georgia mountains into North Carolina. We were treated to a fantastic sunset just outside of Clayton, so I had to pull over and capture the moment. I love the beach, but I LOVE […]
If you have been following my Instagram, you’ll notice that I have uploaded a ton of new pics, but I haven’t been on here in a bit. I guess because Instagram is, as it’s name indicates, relatively instant. This takes a bit more thought and my thoughts have mostly been consumed with some work related […]
One nice thing about aerial photography is that you are afforded a tremendous amount of flexibility to compose your shots. Driving back from Milledgeville with the sun on its way down, I passed by this cotton field with row upon row of undisturbed green. It was interesting to the eye, so I pulled over and had […]

I was fortunate enough to be selected to attend the Apple Distinguished Educator International Institute, and it was spectacular. I learned a lot, connected with people from all over the world, and spent some […]
I have had the chance to travel to many state parks in Georgia, and this shot of a Barred Owl at Amicalola Falls State Park is one of my favorites. The Barred Owl is found throughout the United States and can be identified by its distinctive call, which sounds a lot like “who-cooks-for-you.”
We had a lot of thunderstorms yesterday and after they cleared the area, the sun came out. I was able to get an interesting shot of a microburst off in the distance, with the sun illuminating the rain and some of the clouds. Mother Nature is truly dramatic.
There is nothing like the Appalachians after a heavy rain. The fog rises slowly from the numerous valleys, clinging to the trees and the tops of the mountains. On this particular day, the clouds thinned enough to let the setting sun illuminate the sky, creating an exceptional opportunity.
I’m fortunate that my current digital textbook project is taking me to some of the most beautiful areas of Georgia. I am in the process of visiting many of the state parks, and while there I am able to spend a lot of time with the interpretive rangers, often getting some behind-the-scenes tours. Michael Ellis […]
