Lori has always had a passion for photography, which began when she was a young child using an instamatic camera to take pictures of family. As a young adult, while stationed in Maine with U.S. Coast Guard, Lori purchased her first 35mm SLR camera, a Pentax K1000. During her time in Maine, she began photographing the beauty of the outdoors, sparking her journey into the world of nature photography. In the early 1990s, Lori entered her first photography competition which was held at the annual Lobster Festival in Rockland, Maine. She placed third in the scenic category with her picture of the Rockland Breakwater.
Lori eventually upgraded to Canon equipment. She continues to use Canon cameras today. While in college, Lori took a wildlife photography course, and it was through this course that her interest in wildlife photography blossomed. While she was taking this course, the class made many trips to Chincoteague National Wildlife Refuge, and it was there where Lori’s interest in capturing wildlife, especially birds, developed.
Lori spent 21 years living in Northeastern North Carolina and devoted a lot of time to photographing nature and wildlife on the Outer Banks of North Carolina where she honed her skills as a wildlife and nature photographer. Lori served as the first Regional Coordinator for the Outer Banks Region of the Carolinas’ Nature Photographers Association (CNPA) and was instrumental in setting up and organizing the Outer Banks Region. Lori is a member of North American Nature Photography Association (NANPA).
Over the years, Lori has won awards in several photography competitions including 2nd Place in the mammals category with her image of the deer among the wildflowers in the 2006 Wildlife in North Carolina Photo Competition, as well as 1st Place in the birds category, and 1st Place in the animal behavior category in 2007 Wildlife in North Carolina Photo Competition. Lori also placed Best in Show and 1st Place in the 2007 The Great Outdoors Wildlife Photography Contest.
Lori now lives in the Hampton Roads area of Virginia, and being near Virginia wine country has inspired Lori. Her photography has evolved, and her interests have expanded to include vineyard and wine photography. Lori still continues to be very passionate about her wildlife and nature photography. She just enjoys being creative and loves all types of photography.
Recently, Lori has founded a private Facebook group called Hampton Roads Nature Photography Group. Lori also serves as admin and moderator for this group.
