Long story kind of short... I graduated with a BFA in Photography from the University of Georgia where we shot only film, and in the darkroom we watched our images come alive. I had really great influential teachers throughout my time as a photo major, from learning to make and use pinhole cameras, getting under cover with the large format cameras, to learning about all things photography and getting inspired with my classmates.
I enjoyed time in the darkroom listening to local bands while printing and walking downtown for beers afterward. I loved all of my teachers, but I can easily say that Mark Steinmetz was most influential in awakening what I see with my personal art. I appreciate every moment I had in college and living in Athens, Georgia where I learned to grow as an artist.
Fast forward about 18+ years or so from college days and creating my photography business in Athens... I now live in Bradenton, Florida with my man Walker Howle (amazing musician but architect by day), our dogs Doc and Rudee, and daughter Sonny Bunny Biscuit... I still do professional photography and love shooting all kinds of things. The way I shoot is a mixture from my experience in Art / Editorial Photography at UGA, Commercial Photography at Gwinnett Technical College, 6 years of portrait studio experience, and lots of experience of my own shooting many different subjects. I'm thankful for every moment and different scenario I get to capture.
How do I book a shoot?
Contact me through my site and we'll schedule a date. I like doing things old school, so feel free to call me also.
How many images will I receive?
Depends on the session, I have packages including all images + prints. I love to hand you something tangible... so if you're traveling and schedule a family portrait with me, I'll drop ship the prints included to you. If you only want a few images that's fine too. Email or call me to discuss.
Where are you based?
I am based in Bradenton, Florida but love to travel. My alma mater is UGA in Athens, Georgia so I travel throughout Florida and up to Georgia and beyond quite often.
Do you travel?
What is your turnaround time?
For family portraits and small events, about 1 week-ish. Weddings anywhere from 2-6 weeks depending on the size of the wedding. Real Estate - 24-48 hrs, and Headshots the same.
