About Us

My philosophy on photography started with the quality and work ethic of my father Fred  Spurlin.  

Dad was a university and college photography professor, as well as the Panama Canal Zone Deputy Superintendent of Schools, who always encouraged me to pick up the camera.  From the day I picked up  that camera I was hooked. 

 

After 36 years of working the global photography scene I am taking my photography to the roads of The United States and Canada.
