Headshots in The Cigar Factory Basement
  • Headshots in The Cigar Factory Basement

  • Being a professional photographer is not always roses and sunshine. Sometimes we are faced with difficult scenarios, yet expected to produce stellar results!

Lancaster Christian Services
  • Lancaster Christian Services

  • Yesterday found me traveling to Lancaster, SC for another shoot with the South Carolina Community Loan Fund. The assignment was to tell the "story" of the Lancaster Christian Services Center.

So I decided to take a before-and-after to show what a difference it makes. I'm using four Nikon SB-800 flashes, attached t[...]
