About the Photographer
Thank you for stopping by! My name is Loyd, and I've lived my entire life in Southern West Virginia. My photographic journey began in 2006 with the purchase of a small digital camera to document our first born son. While capturing his special moments, I also starting photographing subjects I found interesting in my area. The fascination with railroading grew from living 50 feet from the Chessie System (Now CSX) mainline in Pence Springs. As a child I would run and watch every train go by. As a grown man, I still do the same thing but with camera in hand. As my abilities progressed, I branched out into many different genres of photography as seen here today. My works have been featured in numerous publications and advertisements around the world. I live near Hinton with my wife Mandi, and our two sons; Mathew and Lucas.
