Bruce has a passion for nature and outdoor activities. In the late 1990’s while studying graphic design he began taking photography courses and found photography a wonderful way to enjoy and record outdoor experiences. After starting with traditional film and large format cameras he transitioned to digital.

The subjects he most enjoys – landscapes and simple scenes reflect his inspiration from Elliot Porter and Ansel Adams. Favorite subjects continue to include the coastal regions of North and South Carolina, Maine and Oregon. The Columbia River Gorge area allows him to pursue another passion – windsurfing. Close to home he enjoys scenes of Dupont Forest, the French Broad River, the Blue Ridge Parkway, and the quiet places of Western North Carolina.

His images have been published in Our State Magazine, The Laurel of Asheville, Southern Arts Journal, Carolina Nature Photographers Association Camera in the Wild, North Carolina Wildlife magazine, and The Blue Ridge Travel Guide. Selected images have also been used in a variety of commercial projects including electronic billboards, print ads, and brochures.
He has exhibited extensively – in Texas, at the Contemporary Museum of Art, in North Carolina at the Cradle of Forestry, Transylvania Community Arts Council, as a participant in exhibits of the Southern Appalachian Photographers Guild at The Biltmore Estate, and Gallery 86 in Waynesville, NC.
Bruce is a participating photographer at Bluewood Photography in Brevard, NC. He lives in Transylvania County, NC.
