The Backroads Studio
Lane works in Fine art photography, mixed media

As an avid outdoorsman, I combine nature photography with my love of hiking, camping, backpacking, canoeing, and fishing. My professional career provided the opportunity to travel nationally and internationally, including Canada, Europe, the UK, Central and South America. My camera gear always followed along. As years passed, I recognized the rural, agricultural landscape of the American South was quickly disappearing. To capture the essence of the region, I refocused my efforts to produce fine art photography I felt would be worthy of a broader audience.
