I'm Chris, Welcome to my site!!


Living in the Fredericksburg, Va. region I come in almost daily contact with American History and the Wildlife abundance that develops around a historic city built just below the fall line and on the banks of a major Virginia river, the Rappahannock.

It is mostly because of this, my photography has evolved with a clear focus on wildlife and historic landscapes.

I have had the great fortune and honor of having a number of my Civil War battlefield photos nationally published in support of Battlefield Preservation and regional Tourism

In 2022 I put together a battlefield preservation fundraising effort through sales of my 2023 calendar.

"Historically Beautiful"


This photo is from my battlefield preservation fundraising effort in 2022.


I very much appreciated Danelle and the Fredericksburg Visitor Center for carrying my 2023 fundraising calendar "Historically Beautiful". It was a successful campaign and all net profits were donated to help save prime battlefield land in the Fredericksburg area.

Donations went to Central Virginia Battlefields Trust and the American Battlefield Trust (fundraiser results below)


"Final Update as of September 3, 2022. 


As of today, we have raised $400.00 through the sale of my battlefield landscape photo calendar. Those funds have now been evenly donated to the American Battle Trust and the Central Virginia Battlefield Trust, to help save more historic and important land on the Chancellorsville battlefield in Spotsylvania, Va. 


These donations are now part of 10.5 to 1 matching effort, making the funds we raised have an over $4,000.00 impact on the bigger preservation effort to save this local battlefield land.

Over the years, I have worked and managed American history and Civil War related Book & Gift Stores that were all located on historic battlefield ground.

The American History Company was a history related retail and service business located across the street from the visitor center in Fredericksburg. The entirety of old town Fredericksburg was part of the Battle of Fredericksburg. - (Founder and President)

This photo was part of a feature story in the Free Lance-Star in the mid 1990s.

The Museum Book & Gift store is located right behind the Fredericksburg National Battlefield Park Visitor's center directly on the Fredericksburg Battlefield. - (Regional Manager)

The Museum & Gift Store is located right on the First Day Chancellorsville battleground. - (Tourism Counselor)
