Phillip will discuss his guide of attractions in the southeast that photographers may want to visit.
He put this together for himself and other photographers; and is happy to share it with anyone who wants it. Keep in mind that this is a work in progress. It lists sites for nature, museums, racetracks and other places of interest for photographers.
Attractions are located in the following six states:
Alabama, Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Tennessee
He has also listed some Birding Sites, to assist in locating some of the species. He is always looking for new places and will add them to the list.
Phillip has been a photographer since the age of ten, when he started with a Kodak Brownie Camera. Today he use Nikon equipment and during the film days he used Minolta equipment, which he still owns.
Phillip is an avid nature photographer, and has a great passion for photographing birds which he tries to photograph daily. He has an average of[masked] birds in his yard each day. He also has a passion for the Great Smoky Mountains, especially Cades Coves; which he calls his “happy place,” (except when the traffic backs up). He believes that Cades Cove is just one the wonders of the Smokies, as are spectacular the wild flowers in April. He also loves photographing sunrises on the beaches.
He works part time for Motorsports America as a photographer and writer. This has provided him the opportunity to go to most of the race tracks and drag strips in the southeast. Barber Motorsports Park and Museum in Leeds, Alabama is great place for racing and flower photography.
Phillip is a retired Firefighter of 30 years, and still works some in his own business of Prichard Safety, teaching safety and emergency response training to industry and construction companies.
He is a member of: Georgia Nature Photographers Association, North American Nature Photographers Association, Carolina Nature Photographers Association, The Audubon Society, Ducks Unlimited, and the National Press Photographers Association
