Doctorsid is a Gatlinburg, Tennessee based photographer / commercial artist who has been capturing photographic images since 1970.

In March of 1982 I opened the "Image Factory", a full service photography store, darkroom, studio and school. I taught classes on capturing and developing photographs and also made the darkroom available for rent to students and photographers.

In August of 1983 I sold the Image Factory and moved to Charlotte, NC where I opened a small advertising agency known as “Image Works”.

In 1989, I took as position as Art Director of a large flexographic printing Pre-press house. This opportunity helped me to expand my knowledge base into the packaging industry where I designed many different types of product packaging.

It wasn't until I went out on my own again as a Macintosh systems consultant that I acquired the name "Doctorsid". But it didn't take too long before I realized that I did not want to be the Mac doctor, or any type of IT troubleshooter for that matter.

I moved to Melbourne, Florida in 1996 and became Art Director of a small ad agency, In 2000, my photography interest would begin to reach a new peak as I became art director for Shutterbug and eDigital Photo magazines.

During my tenure with Shutterbug I had the opportunity to review several cameras and write review articles for the magazine. In 2002, I decided to produce my own photography magazine “”. I was also the president of the Camera Club of Brevard in which I helped the group of over 90 photographers elevate their knowledge of photography.

In 2001, I opened "Doctorsid Graphic and Interactive Solutions” working from my Gallery/Studio into historic Cocoa Village.

In 2005, Doctorsid moved his Gallery / Studio to Gatlinburg, Tennessee. He is now located in a community that not only offers more prospective art buying clients, but also a full change of seasons and a new world of scenery to capture.
