On The Water

This picture is beautiful to me. My wife is eight months pregnant and was ok with hopping in a canoe on Lake Jocassee. Pretty soon we'll be knee deep in diapers and all things baby, so it was nice to spend Sunday afternoon on the water. Lucy did great in the boat, so my gears are already turning for future trips with the family out here. If you have a chance to ge[...]

Long Overdue Update

It's been over a year since we relocated from Charleston to Greenville, SC and we are loving life in the upstate! I'm not sure where to begin with all the news, so here they are in no particular order. We almost moved聽to Chapel Hill, NC. It's a nice area, but it's no Greenville. Ultimately we decided to stay in South Carolina, closer to family, friends and better cycl[...]

Featured by Leica: Inside the 'Pearl of Africa'

I am honored to have my photographs of Uganda featured on Leica's blog. Be sure to check them out and read our little Q&A session. Thank you to everyone that聽helped make this trip a reality. I want to go back, but also challenge myself to make pictures like this in little ole Greenville, SC.聽Whether your organization is big or small, I would love to speak with[...]

The Rolleiflex 馃摲

Some of my favorite pictures are made with a Rolleiflex. Pictures of me and my wife,聽pictures I've made and pictures made by other photographers all have involved the beautiful twin lens reflex camera that's decades old. If you ever get a chance to own one, or use one, don't hesitate. They're built like tanks and the results are outstanding.聽While not necessary, i[...]

my love/hate for film photography

I love the results, but hate the process of film photography.聽Mailing film off to be developed, then聽waiting for its return and聽results. But sometimes I let rolls of聽undeveloped film pile up and time passes, so when the film comes back it is almost a new discovery of what I've photographed in the past. Here are some pictures made with a camouflage plastic toy came[...]

Holli & Robert 路 Nottoway Plantation Wedding

I had the honor to photograph Holli and Robert's wedding at聽Nottoway Plantation聽in White Castle, Louisiana (between Baton Rouge and New Orleans)聽just before New Years Eve of 2015.聽The abundance of聽porches kept us dry from the afternoon showers and made for a great backdrop to聽make their pictures.

Meet Lucy My wife and I have wanted a dog for a long time now,聽but not having a yard and her being in school, kept us from making the commitment to a聽four legged friend.聽If you find yourself in a聽similar position, simply dog sit for all of your friends!聽You'll love it and so will your friends. Anyway, with school behind us and a ni[...]

Waterfalls at DuPont State Forest & Sunset at Caesars Head

I took a little trip the other week with a friend of mine to visit DuPont State Forest. We were biking in聽freezing temperatures, but that didn't stop us from taking the scenic route and checking out a few of the waterfalls inside the forest. Most, if not all are easily accessible and definitely worth a look if you enjoy the outdoors.聽It just so happened to be the [...]

Portraits at Home 路 Charleston, SC

It was a treat to make pictures for this beautiful and artistic family in Mount Pleasant, South Carolina.聽Their聽back porch聽and yard聽made a聽perfect backdrop for their聽family photographs. I only wish that I had had more time to really check out their paintings, because their work is quite amazing. Take a look:聽here and here.

Miriam & Nathan 路 Birmingham, AL Wedding

The beautiful/quirky/awesome聽couple,聽Miriam & Nathan were married at聽Trinity UMC of Homewood聽in the Birmingham, Alabama area.聽It was a great setting for their daytime ceremony and reception, spent聽with their friends and family. We also spent some time at Birmingham Botanical Gardens and Avondale Brewing Company for their聽luncheon and rehearsal dinner. It was a[...]

Snow in Greenville!

Because we live in the South, exclamation points for a few inches of snow is appropriate. Snow is a rarity here in Greenville, so the entire town shut down for a few days while the snow plows attempted to clear the major roadways. My wife and I went on a long walk all around downtown and the camera came along for the ride. Hope you had a great time playing in this[...]
