Thank you for viewing, Knoxville Artistic photography for sale!!! These images are taken in the great city of Knoxville, Tennessee also known as the Gateway to the Smokey Mountains.

I try and focus with the Lord above freeing me of any worldly concerns as I press the shutter release. All in a fraction of a second I can capture an image that has taken me over twenty years to learn to compose. I remember being a very young photographer with tons of machismo!!!!

The art show was on January 3, 2020 at Visit Knoxville in downtown Knoxville. The show was on a very dark and slightly drizzle filled evening on the First Friday series that we do here in Knoxville. I was live on TV, channel 6, with my daughter and also live on WDVX . . . as I gave a short interview. Humbled and thankful for all the people who made it out and a big shout out to the band, “The Montvales” with Evie Andrus, who MC’d the show . . . .
According to Wikipedia “Knoxville is a city in the U.S. state of Tennessee, and the county seat of Knox County. As of the 2010 census, the city has a population of 178,874, and is Tennessee’s third largest city after Nashville and Memphis. Knoxville is the principal city of the Knoxville Metropolitan Statistical Area, which was 868,546 in 2015. First settled in 1786, Knoxville was the first capital of Tennessee. The city struggled with geographic isolation throughout the early 19th century. The arrival of the railroad in 1855 led to an economic boom. During the Civil War, the city was bitterly divided over the secession issue, and was occupied alternately by both Confederate and Union armies. Following the war, Knoxville grew rapidly as a major wholesaling and manufacturing center. The city’s economy stagnated after the 1920s as the manufacturing sector collapsed, the downtown area declined and city leaders became entrenched in highly partisan political fights. Hosting the 1982 World’s Fair helped reinvigorate the city, and revitalization initiatives by city leaders and private developers have had major successes in spurring growth in the city, especially the downtown area. Knoxville is the home of the flagship campus of the University of Tennessee, whose sports teams, the Tennessee Volunteers, are popular in the surrounding area. Knoxville is also home to the headquarters of the Tennessee Valley […]
New food photography for Space Head Restaurant located on the Market Square Mall in Knoxville, TN. I shot these for their new website last week. I hope you enjoy the photography and go check this new and exciting place to eat when your on the town in Knoxville.
Just a quick post to show a couple three photos from some of my recent work. I have been staying extremely busy and can take on new clients now . . . Hope your holidays are spent with loved ones as I am taking a break from reading mine super hero books:)
This was an exciting photo shoot at the Tomato Head Restaurant in Knoxville, TN. These products, which I later sampled, are some of the best and wholesome tasting stuff I have ever put in my mouth. All of the new products were extremely delicious!!!!!
These are photos I shot for the Knoxville News Sentinel on Saturday, August 22, 2015. The gentleman teaching the course was super informative and has information that will be lost very soon as generations of people never learn the basics of food preparation. I myself feel very confident with the basics of cooking that my Granny Gryder passed on to me. However, I am always learning more. Granny always said, that the old ways of doing things will all come back in my lifetime. Yep, Granny was right about pretty much everything. So here are some photos I shot at the James White Fort in Knoxville, Tennessee. Hope you enjoy them and feel free to email me if you want me tell you how to make biscuits like my grandmother taught me. It’s worth learning:)
