Michelle & Marquett

I have thoroughly enjoyed getting to know Michelle & Marquett over the years! We met up again last evening to photograph some new headshots and couple’s portraits. They are such an AMAZING couple and so much fun to work with!!!

Seamon Whiteside Projects in Mt. Pleasant

I had to dodge a couple rain showers. But in between the drops of “liquid sunshine”, I had beautiful skies and gorgeous light for photographing several new projects for Seamon Whiteside!

I started out at the new Carolina Park Recreation Complex with their pickleball, baseball, soccer, and other sports fields. I then made my way over to the Lucy Beckham High School where SW had expanded and remodeled their baseball field. Next was the new Legacy Patriots Point Apartments, which is already 30% sold out! What a great location, with stunning views of the Arthur Ravenel Jr. Bridge. Finally I zipped out to Isle of Palms to photograph the pool area and surrounding landscaping at the Sweetgrass Inn at Wild Dunes Resort.

Many thanks to Lia for organizing and coordinating with the various locations to ensure access. Seamon Whiteside truly does an amazing job on all the assignments they tackle. It’s an honor to be able to photograph these projects for their portfolio!

Bridge Commercial Headshots

It’s been an honor to work with Bridge Commercial over the last decade or so.

Yesterday I had the privilege of photographing updated headshots for them. The scheduling was prompted because they had just hired Morgan, the latest member of their growing team. But of course we opened the shoot up to anyone who wanted an updated headshot. Several folks came down for updates because they have a different hair style, lost some weight, etc. What a great pleasure it was to see Executive Vice President Hagood come down for an update! Hagood was one of the first people I photographed for the firm!!! He hasn’t changed much…just a little grayer and wiser like me. HA!

Many thanks to Kennedy for organizing everyone’s schedules and making this happen.

MUSC Doctor of Surgery Graduation Gala

It was an absolute pleasure photographing the annual Graduation Gala for the esteemed Medical Universary of South Carolina newest surgeons! This was my second year covering this amazing event.  And I’m so glad I got to be a part of it!

Many thanks to Diana for hiring me, and for sharing these kind words with me after she received the photos:
“Thank you so much!! You were great and everyone raved about you from the event. I couldn’t be more pleased with your services and the beautiful photos.”

Headshots for the Joye Law Firm

The best part of my job is meeting new, fun, and friendly people!!!

Last week I had the pleasure of meeting and photographing some new headshots for the Joye Law Firm. I’ve been working with their team for a few years now. And everyone they hire always seems to be so happy! I’d say this law firm must be really great to work for. Having a friendly work environment and a pleasant culture to be a part of makes for happy employees!!!

Staybridge Suites for Naman Hotels

I used to photograph a lot of hotels. One of my favorite clients was the Naman Hotels chain. Unfortunately, they moved over to using an internal source for their photography needs. But this week, my old contact reached out and said they needed some updated drone shots of their Staybridge Suites property in North Charleeston…and would I be willing to help out!

I got there pre-dawn to photograph some dramatic shots during “blue-hour”. Then Dexter and I had a nice time catching up over breakfast. And later I came back to get some daylight shots on a beautiful blue sky day. All images were shot with the DJI Mavic 3 Pro, with proper authorization obtained from nearby Charleston International Airport.

Premier Physical Therapy

It’s always a pleasure photographing for Premier Physical Therapy! Jill and her team are top notch!!! So much so that not only are we their photographers, we’re also clients who have used their services many times to rehab injuries over the years.

This week, Cami and I got to photograph several new members to their team…of both the 2-legged and the 4-legged variety!  😉

Mt. Pleasant Fleet Maintenance Building

Who doesn’t like shiny new toolboxes, powerful truck lifts, and massive air hoses?!? Photographing the new Mt. Pleasant Fleet Maintenance Building recently built by Trident Construction was SO COOL!!! It was like being on a long lost episode of Home Improvement with Tim the Toolman Tailor. 🙂

The Cape at Kiawah Island

Photographing The Cape, an amazing brand new high-end condo complex on Kiawah Island, was an absolute dream! Although the project is far from complete, I was able to get into a few of the units.  The views are absolutely STUNNING!!! Many thanks to Anna and the team at Trident Construcion for this amazing oportunity.

Danny Jones North Charleston Sports Complex

We don’t have many aquatic centers in Charleston. I guess everybody goes to the beach to swim?!? And we have very few really nice public sports complexes. Most of the nicer ones are private. When the city of North Charleston decided to build the Danny Jones Sports Complex near Park Circle, there was a ton of excitement surrounding the project. Imagine my excitement when I was selected to photograph it!!!

The city of North Charleston invested $25 million to build the North Charleston Sports Complex after demolishing the Danny Jones Athletic Center over a year ago. The new sports facility has a 25-meter competitive pool, and a multi-use gymnasium for basketball, volleyball, pickleball and badminton. Visitors can also enjoy the five outdoor tennis courts, multi-use roller rink, soccer field and baseball diamond.

“Built for our residents, this facility underscores our dedication to enriching lives through comprehensive recreational opportunities,” Mayor Reggie Burgess says. “It signifies our ongoing effort to ensure that North Charleston remains a place where community and health go hand in hand.”

Many thanks to Caitlyn from the architecture team at McMillan Pazdan Smith, and Anna from the contractor team at Trident Construction, for trusting me with this assignment!

Headshots of Elliott Davis

I’ve been photographing headshots for Elliott Davis for many years. Usually we meet at a park across the street from their office. Unfortunately it was POURING rain the morning we had scheduled for this round of headshots!

Luckily, I always carry my Flashpoint Li-Ion speedlights with me. So it didn’t take but 15 minute for me to set up a few lightstands, umbrellas, and speedlights to create a little “indoor sunshine”. Although it was a dreary day out, having my lights allowed me to still create bright, beautiful, and cheerful marketing portraits and headshots for the new team.

Many thanks to Holly for helping her coordinate everyone’s schedules!
