BIO

Dwain A Vaughns II.jpg

I am Dwain A. Vaughns, II.  Through my photographs I share my personal stories, while highlighting the beautiful details in the natural world often unseen.  I find purpose in my work by creating awareness of our surroundings, harnessing the healing power of nature, and being a voice for those with accessibility needs.  With my camera I heal myself. Through my photographs, with grace and gratitude, I pass that healing energy to you.
