For over 25 years, Wilson has worked with digital photography. Before moving to Bristol, TN several years ago, he worked as a commercial photographer in Cincinnati for 19 years. He currently uses his digital photography skills in advertising and marketing work and for his personal fine arts projects. His photography has been exhibited in both the Appalachian region and nationally, and his work is included in permanent collections at the University of Kentucky Appalachian Center, Southeast Community College Appalachian Archives and The Kennedy Center.

“With the explosive growth in popularity of digital cameras in the last few years, so many people now have access to the convenience and ease of digital photography,” says Wilson. “However, the full potential of a digital camera rarely gets explored, and there is so much more to creating memorable photographs than just utilizing the auto setting,” he added.
