I majored in art at the University of Georgia then LIFE, as it so often does, happened. 40 years later, retired from teaching drafting, art, residential design, photography, digital multi-media production and technology education, I picked up a good point and shoot digital camera and reclaimed my artist status.

I'm an opportunistic photographer, always looking for my next favorite image to come out of the camera. I'm inspired by just being out of doors and near nature .

I am passionate in my love for our coast of Georgia and it shows throughout my photography.I have been privileged to live here for the past 35 years and I like to say that we've been behind so long that we are now out in front.Of our 14 barrier islands, all but 4 are undeveloped and preserved in their natural state.Our tidal marshes produce tons of shrimp and sea life.Our native south Georgians still mind their manners and respect where they came from and graciously welcome our visitors, even if they come from up North.

I am not a purist when comes to my photography philosophy. Just like the earliest photographers used every trick they could imagine to explore the possibilities of of their new invention, I try to match my skills, creativity and resources to the subject at hand. So I hope you won't underestimate what I might try next.

FYI my maiden name was Laura McLaughlin
And some of my old internet buddies from Weatherunderground.com may know me as SunSetsailor.
