Welcome to Photos By Blue Ridge..

My name is Dave Squires but my friends call me Blue Ridge. I am a Landscape and Wildlife Photographer in Western North Carolina and photography has been one of my hobbies for over the last 10 years. I am always out exploring Western North Carolina and the Blue Ridge Parkway in order to capture its beauty. Until recently, I only shared my photos with my family and friends. In early 2012, I was encouraged to share my photography with everyone online by a close photographer friend. I began by starting a facebook page to share my photos. After a year of sharing my adventures and photos on facebook, my photography began to get noticed. I would constantly receive messages and comments asking me if I had a website to order prints. With all the encouragement from everyone I decided to start organizing my photos and build this website.

I hope you enjoy what I have to offer here. I have tried to select only my favorite photos to make available for purchase. Please remember that any purchases here will help me continue on this journey. I appreciate everything that you all have done for me and I look forward to continue sharing my photography with all of you..

Thank you..

P.S. The photo of me above was actually taken by my 4yr old son. He is my inspiration for moving forward in my photography journey. I am teaching him the values that my parents taught me and to enjoy nature to its fullest. I take my son with me on many of my adventures and sometimes he enjoys taking photos as much as I do. Maybe one day he will also become a photographer and share the world through his eyes..
