As Isaac gets older, there are fewer and fewer opportunities when he will really cooperate when I have a camera in hand. The moments when I can actually collaborate on photos with a three and a half year old are priceless. I love the infrequent moments when he not only humors me by standing in […]

Mike + Diana – Thirty Five Years and Going Strong

June 18, 2012 | No comments yet

One of the things I have always loved most about photography is the opportunity it provides to meet new people and have a small window into their lives. Such was the case when I recently got an opportunity to take some photos of Mike and Diana to celebrate their thirty-fifth anniversary. To record this significant […]

Month of Monochrome: Progress Report

June 13, 2012 | No comments yet

Just wanted to report that my month+ of shooting black and white for all my personal work is still going strong, though I’ve snuck a color image or two in there because the colors were so epic and I couldn’t resist. I’ve also used black and white for some paid work, just not exclusively. Hope […]

Always Photograph For Yourself

June 5, 2012 | One comment

Though you may find yourself shooting photos for other people, always remember to shoot for yourself as well. Find those things that compelled you to pick up a camera in the first place. Photograph things that you love, and don’t worry if anyone else will love them. Remember that even though you have a hundred […]

A Month of Monochrome: First Impressions

May 30, 2012 | No comments yet

A little over two weeks ago, I declared that for all my personal work, I would shoot in black and white exclusively. So far, I’ve kept to it, for the most part. I have over a month to go, but have already taken a number of photos in various types of monochrome. So far, I’ll […]

If you are like me, any time you take a trip somewhere, you get excited about opportunities to see new things with fresh eyes. Not only do you have some time away from the daily grind, but you have some time away from the familiar, and you can recharge your creative batteries. Every time I […]

Katie + Sam – Love is Real, Folks

I recently had the incredible privilege of documenting my step-brother Sam marrying the love of his life. I hold them both in very high esteem, and am so incredibly happy to have Katie in our family, and to have the opportunity to give them the humble gift of these photos. Thanks to all the wedding […]

Light is Everything

January 19, 2012 | No comments yet

I’ve probably written about it before, but I have some new photos with some new toys, and thought it was time to reassert something that a lot of budding photographers overlook in their quest to have the best gadgets: light is the KEY to great photos. I’m not saying strobes are key, or speedlites are […]

Headshots for New Media Campaigns

January 4, 2012 | No comments yet

Today I had the privilege of shooting new headshots for New Media Campaigns, an awesome web design company in Carrboro with whom I recently started an internship. I wanted to show these headshots for a couple of reasons. First, I don’t have any headshots on my website anywhere, so this is an opportunity to show […]

Shaping Light

September 19, 2011 | No comments yet

Today’s blog post is going to be a bit shorter on words than usual, and a bit longer on images. I took these photos this morning with my friend Jemmel, who was kind enough to be a guinea pig while I tried some new stuff and dialed things in. I’m really pleased with the results […]
