Headshots for Elliott Davis

Photographing headshots yesterday for Elliott Davis, one of my favorite clients, was an absolute blast!

Working with the individuals at Elliott Davis is always a delightful experience. I arrived early to find a picturesque backdrop for us to use. The morning light was gorgeous. And everyone was so much fun! I couldn’t have asked for a more enjoyable session. And I’m grateful for the opportunity to continue collaborating with such a talented and inspiring team!

Park, Fire Department, and Library

It was awesome working with Dorchester County PIO, Michelle, again this week!

We photographed updated photos of Ashley River Park, the new Ladson Fire Station, and the soon-to-open North Charleston Library. Everything was captured with Nikon Z9 camera, Nikkor Z 14-24 f4, 24-120 f4, 70-200 f2.8 lenses, and DJI Mavic 2 Pro drone.

Sanja for State Farm

I’d like you to meet Sanja! She is originally from Bosnia and Herzegovena, that beautiful country in the Balkans, along the Adriatic Sea.

Sanja’s family moved to the US when she was still young. And she has taken the world by storm ever since! She’s won all kinds of fitness and body-building competitions…meeting her handsome husband at the gym along the way. 🙂 And she’s been very successful in her business ventures. Her most recent move is opening a new State Farm insurance agency off Orleans Rd!
It was a pleasure meeting Sanja today, photographing some new headshots and marketing photos. I look forward to following her story as she builds her new business in West Ashley. Let’s show her some encouragement and well-wishes!!!

Anniversary Model Shoot

18 months ago, I had the honor of photographing Frank’s surprise proposal to his beautiful girlfriend, Lea. Then a year ago I had the pleasure of capturing all the wonderful moments of their amazing wedding. Fast forward to this week and Frank booked a fun Anniversary Shoot for Lea!!! He had purchased a gift certificate from us and given it to her on their anniversary. What a great gift idea, right?!?

We scheduled the photo shoot at Pixel Studios, which has a wonderfully creative vibe to it. LeRoy, the owner, is a longtime friend. He made sure everything was all set up and ready to go. Lea arrived early so that the amazingly talented hair and make-up artist, Erika Paola could do her magic. Then it was time to get in front of the lights and camera!

We had a blast transforming Lea into a model for the day…capturing a wide variety of studio portraits for her. She looked AMAZING!!!

Aiken Eye Care

It was time for our annual eye checkup. So Cami and I headed over to our FAVORITE eye doctor, Dr. Lori, at Aiken Eye Care. We love her so much, that when she moved her practice from Charleston to Aiken, we decided to stick with her instead of finding someone new.

While we were there, we did some new marketing photos and headshots for Dr. Lori and her team!

Joye Law Firm Headshots

I had fun photographing photographing headshots at the Joye Law Firm today! We started out with some traditional “Rembrandt Lighting” on the white background. Then we switched to one of the earth-done walls in the lobby, where I used some “Butterfly Lighting” for a more glamorous look.

Headshots for Tenet Physician Resources

It was a pleasure photographing Haley for Tenet Physician Resources this week. I love how crisp and clear the Z9 renders images!!! I met up with Haley at the Dodds Durst House across from the East Cooper Medical Center. It’s a beautiful property with gorgeous oak trees.  She was a lot of fun to work with!

Headshots for Fifth Third Bank

It was a pleasure photographing headshots for the group at the Fifth Third Bank yesterday!

Headshots at Center for Birds of Prey

I may not have deep pockets. But one way I CAN support a worthy local non-profit is by donating my time and my talent. So whenever possible, I volunteer my services to photograph headshots and events for the Avian Conservation Center in Awendaw!

It was a pleasure meeting Morgan, Maggie, and Justine yesterday after a busy morning on-site. They had just finished hosting over 100 guests, doing flight demonstrations, and educating our young people on the importance of keeping our planet safe for ALL who live here!

I used a Nikon Z9, Nikkor Z 70-200 f2.8, and 2 SB-5000 flashes to create these environmental headshots for the newest members to the center’s team. Off to camera-right, the first SB-5000 was fired through a 24″ Godox softbox as a main light. Off to camera-left, the second flash had a CTO gel placed on it to create a warm kicker light.

If you aren’t familiar, I highly recommend checking this organization out, and scheduling a time for you and your family to visit: www.thecenterforbirdsofprey.org. It truly is a magical experience to be so up close and personal with some of the most powerful (and picturesque) raptors on earth!!!

Many thanks to Mandy, Director of Operations, for organizing this photo shoot. And CONGRATULATIONS to these amazingly talented young ladies on joining a fantastic team at the Center for Birds of Prey.
