Jim + Krista – Raleigh Engagement Photographer

September 10, 2013 | No comments yet

Early this summer I had the pleasure of photographing Jim, Krista, and Bailey at the North Carolina Museum of Art and the Raleigh Rose Garden for some engagement and Save the Date photos for their wedding in the fall of 2014. A beautiful sunny day, we all enjoyed the weather, and got some fun shots […]

The Things That Are Deeper Than Photos

August 10, 2013 | One comment

There is this rule, in internet blogosphere land, that you are not supposed to post blogs at 12:30 am. Something about how most people are sleeping and not surfing the internet, devouring your precious content. That rule probably also suggests that you shouldn’t be doing it on a worknight, and maybe shouldn’t be writing it […]

New Perspectives, Familiar Places

August 8, 2013 | No comments yet

It’s super easy to get jaded in your hometown, to feel like you’ve shot the same things from the same angles in the same ways a million times over. When I return home from a trip, I always try to approach the familiar with those fresh eyes I had when seeing new things wherever I […]

Monsoon Summer

July 9, 2013 | No comments yet

It’s a wonder we haven’t floated away yet, rainy as it’s been in North Carolina this summer. I mean, we are used to rain, but not like this kind of rain–this heavy, persistent, record-breaking rain that is flooding things like I’ve never seen before. Between the rainstorms and the firestorms brewing in the NC Legislature, […]

Becoming a Man: Nathan’s Bar Mitzvah

June 3, 2013 | No comments yet

Earlier this year, I had the opportunity to photograph the Bar Mitzvah of the son of a couple whose wedding I’d photographed a few years prior. Well, to be totally accurate, I had the opportunity to photograph the rehearsal of the Bar Mitzvah, as photography isn’t allowed in the synagogue during the ritual itself. As […]

A Strange Request

May 31, 2013 | One comment

This is probably the weirdest blog I will write. Maybe this is where I reveal my true character, and scare folks away. It is where I separate the men from the boys, the women from the girls, the wheat from the chaff… you get the point. When I was a kid and my dad was […]

Camera Nerd Blog O’ The Week: What’s in My Bag, Game Day

May 18, 2013 | No comments yet

No, I didn’t forget anything–my dirty, well-used iPhone 4 is the only thing that should be in the photo, because that’s all I’m taking with me. I don’t shoot sports professionally, I’m not getting a paycheck, I’m not on photo assignment. I am going to a ballgame, with my family, to have fun and eat […]

Tobacco Trail Pilgrimage

May 17, 2013 | No comments yet

Whenever I get the opportunity to see striking photographs from great photographers, I try to take advantage of it and make it a photographic pilgrimage of my own. Sadly, the last time I was able to make a photo-centric trip was back in 2010, when I flew to New York City to see Henri Cartier-Bresson‘s […]

Camera Nerd Blog ‘O The Week: What’s In My Bag, Concert Edition

May 7, 2013 | No comments yet

I recently had a couple of photo gigs–photographing vintage dolls and doing some promo shots for the very talented Karen and Shawn Galvin of New Music Raleigh–that involved so much gear I elected not to do a “What’s in My Camera Bag?” because the logistics were too tiresome. There was a ThinkTank Airport International bag […]

This spring in Durham we have had a stretch of cool, drippy, cloudy weather that reminds me more of Seattle than North Carolina. Where we have temperatures lingering in the sixties this year, we usually have muggy eighties. I am enjoying the cooler weather, and even the rain. Even though it’s not always fun to […]
