Photographer and Artist based in the Shenandoah Valley, Blue Ridge Mountains Virginia, Owner of The Blackburn Gallery in Nellysford Va at the foot of Wintergreen Resort
Starting with small 110 and 410 cameras as a boy then the gift of a Yashica 35mm at age twelve. I have been fascinated with photography and the photographic c process. After studying in traditional arts in High school and College and working as a photojournalist and commercial photographer for more than 14 years I am more in love with my craft than ever before. I am fascinated with the possibilities that lay before me in the digital age and just what can be created to truly share my vision. My current visions are leading down the path to a created image some create in camera using traditional photographic methods others created in the digital darkroom.
I am lucky to have my artwork hang in such commercial venues as, The University of Virginia Hospital, UVA Physicians Group Offices, Augusta Health, Lumos Networks Global Headquarters, Dupont Community Credit Union,Rockingham Memorial Hospital, First Bank and Trust. And countless private collections
