Hard Shotz Photography | About
Hello, I am a native of East Tennessee and hold a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Tennessee. I first became interested in photography while traveling around the world serving in the military. To borrow a quote from Ansel Adams, “there are always two people in every picture: the photographer and the Viewer.” Please join me in my photographs.

Although, we specialize in action and combat sports photography we can meet most needs - be it portraiture, high school senior picture, event, wedding or boudoir photography. If you have any questions please contact us - we are looking forward to capturing your memories.

We use Nikon camera gear and travel with at least two camera bodies to ensure a successful session, even in the unlikely event we have a gear malfunction. Additionally, we use a variety of lenses, light modifiers, studio strobes, flashes, tripods, monopods and other miscellaneous gear. We employ various software programs (Portrait Professional, Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Lightroom and others) to edit your pictures to ensure they are clear and crisp
