• Single frame: Out on a Limb

    I visited the outskirts of Clover, South Carolina with Hutch and we found many good locations to photograph. We had looked up the hill from the road as we drove past and saw Joe and Curtis, the land owners, getting out of their trucks. They were clearing a large expanse of land. Hutch saw them […]

  • Mud season

    It’s mud season in South Royalton, Vermont. I went outside to pick up two cold unsweetened reduced decaf black teas at R.B.’s Deli. It was 49F degrees with no wind chill. I like the texture contrast of the muddy snow mountains to the gray fog and heavy cloud cover.

  • Downtown South Royalton

    I took these after walking halfway up to Kents Ledge in the early morning. It was September of 2019 in Vermont.

  • Photographing church banners

    I was hired by Jim White in February to shoot forty-four church banners made by him, his wife, and the women of Albemarle Road Presbyterian Church. I took my tripod, camera, a remote trigger, a gold reflector, and two variable LED soft box lights.

  • Single frame: Barn and Spike-tooth Harrow

    I had been working in the office all week and needed to get out. I took off yesterday with another photographer for a day trip to a few South Carolina towns. This is one of the places I turned around for and he asked the owner for permission to shoot this. They were really friendly.

  • Single frame: Firing the Flintlock

    This is from the living history workshop that I attended, which I mentioned in my workshop post. My composition has A. J. Bennett firing his Flintlock musket towards the wood with the Historic Latta Plantation house in the background. I’ve removed the modern inventions from the photo to keep it in the 19th-century time period […]

  • The workshop

    I’m looking forward to attending a living history photography workshop at the end of this month of February. It will be the first photography workshop that I’ve attended since starting this photographic pursuit in 2015. I happened on the website when I looking at a listing of best photos from 2020 and noticed that this […]

  • Single frame: Waxhaw water tower from northeast view

    Heading south through Waxhaw, the day was coming to a close and traffic was heavy so I pulled off at BB&T bank and from the top of the hill, I was able to get a photograph of the water tower through the trees.

  • Single frame: Waxhaw Antiques

    This was taken in May of 2015. I distinctly remembering having an hour of free time after I had gotten my hair and beard trimmed at Broome Barber Shop. It was a warm cloudy day and the sun was high in the sky, which I knew would lend towards a good black and white with […]

  • Single frame: Train passes under Waxhaw foot bridge

    Here’s a new black and white photograph that I shot at sunset in 2015 from the famous Waxhaw foot bridge in North Carolina. Originally, this composition was on my old Instagram account in color.

  • Single frame: Sunset at Christ Covenant

    I was digging through my archives and found this hidden gem. At first, I wanted to toss it out because it was too plain. Plain as in I’ve seen this arrangement of colors too many times before. I opened this very large TIFF file and found that there was more color hidden within the edges […]

  • Sidewalks

    I have been taking many photo trips this year but fewer than last year. I have enjoyed especially traveling with the two photographer friends who joined me for the drive. I explored street photography for the first time in Asheville, North Carolina. That took getting used to as it was outside of my comfort zone. […]

  • Late bloomers

    Two pear trees in the backyard are now blooming orange. It was a muggy overcast day after it had rained all night and it was the right color to lift the mood.

  • Fall colors

    I went out for a walk around the neighborhood yesterday. The fall colors are peaking in some areas and in others the leaves have fallen. It was pretty and the weather nice.

  • Single frame: The Banks of White River by Moxley Covered Bridge

    I drove over Moxley Covered Bridge from the hills and found a parking spot to the left of the road and this bank led down to the river’s edge. Framed this shot in camera after setting up the tripod. I like how the rocks and the curve of the bank lead your eyes from the […]
