Guest Artist (non-competing): Harold Ross, Jr. is a Fine Art Landscape Photographer living in Johnson City Tennessee. The seed of his passion was planted during his childhood days in the Boy Scouts. In his pursuit of Eagle Scout Harold hiked many segments of the Appalachian Trail and camped in numerous Parks, National Forest and Wildlife Management Areas of the Blue Ridge Mountains. It was
through these experiences that made Harold aware of the vast beauty that our region has to offer.
After graduating from Milligan College, Harold started a career in sales. During this time in his life he also took up the hobby of Fly Fishing. It was through his pursuit of finding some of the best Fly Fishing streams in East Tennessee, Southwest Virginia and Western North Carolina that his passion for capturing these special places grew. Harold states ” I want to share and emphasize the diversity of beauty that each distinct season brings to the valleys, woodlands and mountain highlands our area of the country has to offer.”
In his 25 years of shooting, Harold has an even greater sense of appreciation for life, love and relationships that have carried him in his pursuit of that perfect reflection of light that represents the simplistic beauty of the Blue Ridge Mountains.
