Photography for family, weddings, and scenic views.
Lynn Willis is a graphic designer and photographer and owner of High South Creative, a design and photography firm. His letterhead tags him as an image maker, story teller, pixel pusher, and digital artist and his portfolio includes photos of adventure sports and mountain landscapes from the Appalachians to the Himalayas. Lynn discovered the joy of photography as a child in the late 1970’s with his dad’s hand-me-down Brownie camera with black and white film. Currently, he’s focusing on portraying outdoor sports and landscape images specific to the Blue Ridge Mountains as well as family portraits. He much prefers the digital age over the film days of the past.
Lynn’s imagery includes outdoor adventure, landscape, portrait, and event photography and his work has been published in calendars, books, catalogs, websites, regional and national magazines, and the Associated Press. He has placed every year for the last 14 years in the Appalachian Mountain Photography Competition, including multiple category wins and the People’s Choice Award in 2013. His personal projects include donating his images for environmental causes, land protection with conservancy groups, and the promotion of local trails, parks, and Greenways. In his free time and in addition to playing with his kids, Lynn enjoys rock and ice climbing, mountain biking, and nordic skiing.
He also teaches Photography at Appalachian State University and is Production Photographer for the Theatre & Dance Department at ASU.
