The Collierville Burch Library is pleased to welcome Don Cummings as our December Artist. Don's love for taking photos began while serving in the US Navy in 1988. He began shooting professionally in 2005. Don has traveled the world photographing locations in 14 different countries. He has photographed extensively in the United Kingdom, France, Southeast Asia as well as the United States.
While his first love is fine art landscapes, her also works as a commercial photographer shooting food and beverage products, fine art fashion, sports and stock photography.
Don says, "I find it hard to travel anywhere without taking photos. I always want to stop and capture the moment. I believe that there are no ordinary moments in life. There is always something special and unique going on, you just have to stop and look. My passion is to capture as many of those moments as I can. I never travel anywhere without my camera."
Mr. Cummings is currently based in Nashville, TN.
