Charleston Winter Wonderland
  • Charleston Winter Wonderland

  • During the recent Charleston Winter Story, schools were closed, businesses shut down, and law enforcement asked everyone to stay off the streets! Having lived through the brutal winters of Michigan and Ohio, I'm quite comfortable driving in snow. But I wasn't about to place my life in the hands o[...]

  • Vancouver, WA

  • We're in Vancouver, WA, where I'll be photographing a conference this week. Strangely enough, my oldest brother and his wife moved here last year! So we flew in a few days early to spend some time with them and do a little sight-seeing. :-)
Ella at Magnolia Plantation
  • Ella at Magnolia Plantation

  • One of the many joys in my life is teaching and inspiring others who share my love for the art of photography. This weekend I had the priviledge of mentoring Ella Crawford as she shadowed me for her 8th grade career day project in school. Since she loves wildlife, we spent the afternoon at Magnol[...]
Edisto Island
  • Edisto Island

  • Cami and I spent a week in a wonderful, secluded, log cabin on Edisto Island last week. We were there for our annual business planning, affectionately called the "Chris & Cami Photography Summit". But we also use the time to unplug, reconnect, and refocus. As part of that process, I was ab[...]

Charleston Center for Birds of Prey
  • Charleston Center for Birds of Prey

  • Beautiful weather...beautiful birds...I couldn't have asked for a more perfect day at the Center for Birds of Prey! I've been attending their Photography Day events for several years now. These events sell out fast, and never disappoint! Most of these were shot with the new Nikkor 300mm f4 PF [...]

Center for Birds of Prey

  • This spring I had the pleasure of attending one of the Photography Days at the Charleston Center for Birds of Prey. I absolutely LOVE visiting and supporting this amazing facility.

First Shoot with the Nikon D500
  • First Shoot with the Nikon D500

  • The day after the new Nikon D500 arrived, I took it out to Magnolia Plantation for a test. These are the results...ranging from ISO 800 at the beginning, to ISO 1600 of the squabling family, to 3200 of the pair peering into the water, and finally on up to 12,800 of the last shot!!! [...]
Foggy Boneyard Beach
  • Foggy Boneyard Beach

It was formed in the 1930s from the merger of the Colonial-era Sea Cloud Plantation and Bleak Hall Plantation. Then in 1977, it was given to the state as a wildli[...]
