How To Survive the Ultra-Long Haul Flight

Recently, in a strange twist of debilitating fate, I had to take one of the longest flights in the world: John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) to Hong Kong International Airport (HKG) on Cathay Pacific Airlines. It clocks in as the world’s eighth longest flight at an average of 16HRs […]

Shining Stars Foundation

Last summer my wife and I were fortunate enough to shoot some photos and video for the Shining Stars Foundation–an organization that helped my family in a hard season. We spent a week in Winter Park, Colorado, getting to know families, kids, and staff. We shot a ton of stuff–all […]

Giving Thanks For a Good Day

Over the course of that first year the doctors and nurses reminded us many times that “you fight this battle one day at a time; some days you just give thanks that it was a good day.” Today I have to give thanks. It’s hard to believe it’s been three […]

Ireland in Fall

Sláinte! My wife and I have been fascinated by Ireland for years. Luckily her ancestors are from Ireland, which makes me an honorary Irishman… I think. We were married this last August and decided to go to Ireland for our honeymoon. The trip wasn’t intended to be a photo adventure, […]

These photos come with a bit of a delay. I shot these back in September for the Akeson family. They wanted some photos to use for a big wall collage, so we went to the Norfolk Botanical Gardens and clicked away. Even though it was hot and humid, we had […]

These are from a recent engagement photo shoot with Steven and Megan. They were hilarious; had me laughing the whole time.

Dead Confederates in Stone and Brick

I decided to go on a little adventure. I found myself at the Oakland Historic Cemetery at sunset. It was built in 1850 overlooking then downtown Atlanta, Georgia. With graves dating back to the early 1800’s, many of them Confederate soldiers, the graveyard seemed too unique to pass by unexplored. The […]

Morgan & Colin

I had the pleasure of meeting Morgan and Collin recently for a headshot shoot. Morgan and Collin are local commercial and film actors who needed updated photos to hand out while auditioning. They were easy to work with, and were quite comfortable in front of the camera. We shot on […]

Shawn & Headshots

I helped a friend shoot some headshots about a month ago. He only had fifteen minutes, so we shot as much as we could, and then called it quits. We ended up with a few good shots. He needed some photos for his website, not necessarily headshots, but these are […]
