Gervais St. Bridge
I realize that the title of this blog might be a relatively arrogant claim to make, but I have my reasons for making it. , to be fair to me, let me explain why, if I am not, I should still be in the running for the vote next year. Wait? Is there a vote, and can I put my name in the hat for it? I am a Columbia SC native through and through. I have moved away for college, work and fun many times, but I have always…

Love and a Dog
What you are seeing is the first picture I ever took of the first dog my wife and I ever got together. Her name is Zooey Deschanel. Yep, we named her after the famous actor/singer from such shows as "New Girl," and the musical act known as "She and Him." We always name our dogs after the music that we are listening to. Just so you know, our puppy is named Johnny Cash. If you don't know who that is, I can't help you. Zooey is one of the best…

Marketing and the Photographer
Photography is not just for keepsakes and memories. Photography is a powerful tool that can be used to grab your customer's attention, and get them in the door to see the products and services that you offer. One of the things that I do on the side of my regular job, is social media marketing for local businesses around town. Some of those businesses are London and Lace Bridal Boutique, Landon Roes Atelier and Best Mattress. When I approached the owner of Best Mattress with an idea, I knew that…

Catch That Moment
What you see before you is one of the greatest shots I have ever taken. Why? Because I hunted this man like I was hunting a deer in the wilderness. Let me explain. I was the photographer hired for the wedding of Jay Wooten and Annie Konduros. Annie is one of the most photogenic people that I have ever seen on camera. She works in the modeling/entertainment industry and is surrounded by extremely talented cameramen everyday of her life. For some reason, I guess she wanted different, so she hired…

A Photographer Who Shutters
I think my title for this blog is a play on words. Get it? In any case, this was one of my favorite street photography shots from New York City this past weekend. Not because of the "artistic integrity," but for the sheer insanity of the subject matter. If you notice, this girl is standing next to a dump truck. Why is that funny to me? Mainly for the reason that it is representative of our state of civilization. As a photographer, it is my job to capture the right…

A Photographer and Exploitation
Have you ever thought about what your responsibility as a photographer is? I have. I think about it every time I pick up a camera. Every time I click the shutter, I make sure that the subject I am shooting is displayed, not only in an artistic way, but also in a way that gives respect to the point of interest that I am trying to capture. That is why, for the most part, I am against exploitation for my own benefit. Before you go jumping to conclusions, let me…

Love and Photography
This past weekend, my wife and my kids accompanied me to New York City for Bridal Market. My wife had all of her appointments to attend to as usual, but this time I took the kids through the streets of NYC. One of my greatest joys is street photography. I love the candid moments that you capture, and sometimes, the stars can align for something beautiful. This picture, in particular, is one of the happiest moments I have ever caught. I say that because it has my daughter and one…

Black and White Photography
Tomorrow, my family and I go to New York City for bridal market and for a family vacation. We have not ever been a vacation like this, so it is exciting and nerve wrecking all at the same time. But, I am excited about it because I think this will be a new stage for growth for my children and myself. Stoked! I am especially excited about the fact that my son is going with me and we are going to do a lot of photography and video while we…
