Earlier this week I had the distinct pleasure of photographing Mt. Pleasant Mayor, Billy Swails, and his lovely bride, Peggy, for Mount Pleasant Magazine. It was my first time meeting Mayor Swails, and I was genuinely impressed with his generosity and character. Peggy was a true southern sweetheart…warm, caring, witty…and a gracious host in her beautiful home.
Eileen Smith was the writer on the assignment and was the epitome of experience and professionalism. I also got to meet Joey, the assistant editor at the magazine, who came to the first part of the shoot with the Mayor at Waterfront Park and had some excellent suggestions. Bill, the magazine’s editor, was a pleasure to work for…allowing full reign and creative license on the project. I’ve had other images in their publication, and he told me he trusted me and was looking forward to seeing what I came up with. It’s so nice to work with other creatives that allow that much freedom! I look forward to building a great relationship with this team.
