Berkeley County Promo Pics

I have really enjoyed working with Jenna at Berkeley County to capture a wide variety of promotional pictures for their marketing team. Today was another fun day in pursuing that goal!!!

Charleston Water Systems

With the right lighting, professional headshots can be done just about anywhere!

I had the pleasure of photographing updated headshots for the management team at Charleston Water Systems last week. You would never know it, but these were made in their basement with an archive of records on one side, and a breakroom sink on the other! But regardless of the environment, we had a great time and came away with some awesome shots!!!

Many thanks to Mike Saia for all his hard work in coordinating everyone’s schedules.

Berkeley County Government

I have really enjoyed working with Jenna, the amazing Public Information Officer over at Berkeley County this year! Last week she had another great day of photography lined up for me.

It may look like a ton of work…like we were zipping all over the place, from one office to the next, from building to building. But Jenna is so organized and so cheerful when she enters a room, that it made the whole day a ton of fun. I can see why she is so well known, and so well appreciated by her colleagues!

Headshots for Sheally Insurance

Sheally Insurance is EXPANDING!!!

I had the pleasure of photographing headshots and marketing photos for the company’s new location in Summerville today. Kaitlin was a pleasure to work with, and a natural in front of the camera!  Many thanks to Allison for organizing everything and for her helpful creative input.

Sheally Insurance – Summerville Office

I had another fun photo shoot for Sheally Insurance this morning. This time I got to photograph the team at the brand new Summerville Office!

Dorchester County Promotional Photos

Did you know that Dorchester County is named for its first settlement area, which was established by Congregationalists in 1696? These settlers applied the name “Dorchester” to the area, in honor of their last residence in Dorchester, Massachusetts. Officially, Dorchester was not established as a separate county of South Carolina until 1897.

I’ve had the pleasure of working on some new promotional photos this year with the amazing Michelle Mills from the Dorchester County Government. Here are a few shots from the most recent shoot, featuring the EMS Headquarters, Sheriff’s Office, Dorchester County Detention Center, Davis-Bailey Park, and Texas Community Park.

Dorchester County Marketing Photos

This was a fun day!

While creating marketing photos for the Dorchester County Government, I got to photograph a huge variety of images. From staff photos at the Public Works Group, to first-responders at the fire station, to members of the EMS team, to scenic shots of Rosebrock and Ashley River Parks…it was a pretty intense day.  Portraits, group shots, aerial drone photos, nature, architecture, and scenery…I covered a wide gamut.

Two things I love about my job…I get to meet the most interesting people, and I never get bored!  🙂

Headshots for Elliott Davis

The weather was a little “iffy” this morning. But Sarah at Elliott Davis thought we had a “window” of opportunity to get their headshots in. And she was right!
The drizzling stopped just long enough for us to capture a variety of nice headshots and casual portraits of their team on the beautiful grounds of The Gaillard Auditorium. Everyone was fantastic to work with. Plus we had the extra benefit of overcast skies to provide us with nice, soft, light to shoot with!

Aiken Eye Care

Ever since I photographed her wedding many years ago, it’s been such a pleasure having Dr. Lori in our lives!

Not only did we photograph her wedding, we’ve photographed family portraits for her family, and marketing photos for her practice at Belle Hall Eye Care. She’s such a great person, and so knowledgeable about her profession, that soon we were also clients of HERS!!! Being that my eyes are an integral part of what I do, I don’t trust my eye care to just anyone!

So when she decided to move to Aiken, Cami and I were delighted when she asked if we’d travel to photograph marketing photos for her new practice! And we were even more delighted when she agreed to continue as our eye doctor!!!  If you’re anywhere near Aiken, check her out at www.aikeneyecare.com.

We had so much fun catching up with Dr. Lori, photographing images for her website, and marketing material, plus of course getting a “clean bill of health” on our eyes. 🙂

Speedlight Magic

Last week I found myself on an assignment in the dark recesses of a 911 call center. Given extremely limited time to work with, I channeled my inner Joe McNally, placed a single SB5000 with a blue gel on it in the background, and hid a single SB5000 with a CTO gel behind the bank of monitors. Click…click…click…and I was escorted back out so as not to distract them any further from their high-stress jobs!

Dorchester County Marketing Photos

I always enjoy getting out and meeting people. It’s one of the best parts about my job!!!
 
Last week I had an assignment to photograph a variety of faces and different departs for the Dorchester County Government. Michelle was so organized, and so fun to work with! We traveled all over the county, getting to know interesting individuals, and creating a variety of images for their newsletter, website, social media outlets, and marketing material. Plus I got to have a glimpse behind the scenes of some unique places like the 911 dispatch center! It was SO COOL!!!
