Wayne Riddick is a photographer, originally from eastern North Carolina. He graduated from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill with a degree in chemistry. In 2003, Eastman Chemical Company transferred him from the Chicago area to its headquarters in Kingsport, which planted his home just outside of Bristol. He is retired now, and enjoys nature photography as his main hobby. He is especially interested in the scientific aspects of the nature that he photographs.

Wayne says, “I believe that nature photography is a means of combining science and art – creating works that showcase the beauty, complexity, diversity, and wonder of nature. Exhibiting and selling my work is a new venture for me, and so far, I’ve really enjoyed sharing my art – and nature – with the community.”
