About Mercere Collins

Who Am I?

As soon as I saw the first photo I made when I was 10 years old, even though it was black and white and a bit fuzzy, I was hooked on photography!   I built a darkroom in my basement, loved the smell of the developer and fixer, and later became my high school photographer.   My photos over the years have not only preserved memories of family and friends; they have also chronicled my travels, triggering memories that otherwise would have faded over the years. Now I love making photos that will always be treasured by my clients.

Where am I?

I grew up in Memphis TN, where my family was raised.  I first photographed the Blue Ridge Parkway on a family vacation with my parents when I was 15 and fell in love with the beauty and majesty of scenery along the BRP.  The clouds that frequently form in the mountain valleys highlight the beauty of the mountains.   With family now in Memphis, Nashville, Knoxville, Washington DC area, and a cabin a few miles from the BRP in Linville NC, I have the best of all worlds, being able to photograph not only people and events in those places, but also the beauty of the Mountains.  Grandfather Mountain, shown here, can be seen from my deck now.   I  love travelling, so feel welcome to inquire about destination photography.

Portrait Photography

I love learning more about photography, and continually put into practice what I learn.  I regularly update my site, so check back to see what's new.  If you have me make your photos, I'd welcome sharing them on this site (with your approval!).
