Jeb Bush SC Presidential Campaign

I was sad to hear Jeb Bush suspended his campaign yesterday. After cris-crossing the state, covering his South Carolina town hall meetings for his Campaign, he seemed like a kind, sincere, humble, hard-working, and decent candidate.

โ€œIโ€™m proud of the campaign that weโ€™ve run to unify our country,โ€ Mr. Bush said, his eyes moist, in an emotional speech Saturday night after his third straight disappointing finish in the early voting states. โ€œThe people of Iowa and New Hampshire and South Carolina have spoken, and I really respect their decision.โ€

Here are a few shots from one of his stops in our beautiful state…

Christopher Teves Strikes a Chord

Working with a fellow artist like Christopher Teves always inspires me!

I’ve known Christopher for a long time. I remember photographed images for the cover of one of his first CDs many years ago. We often bump into each other at weddings when he’s playing the processional, or at recitals where he’s a featured musician. But spending quality time with him the other afternoon was a real honor!

Christopher is the kind of gentle old soul that resonates with me. We could have been brothers in another lifetime! His passion for his art runs deep. He loves what he does. And he works REALLY hard to be the best that he can be at his craft!

If you haven’t had the pleasure, I highly recommend seeking out Christopher’s next performance, booking a guitar lesson, or crashing the next wedding he’s playing! ๐Ÿ™‚ Check him out at www.christopherteves.com.

AM Conservation Group at The Riviera Theater

I always enjoy photographing corporate events…especially the holiday gala’s that are so fun and festive. One of my favorites each year is the AM Conservation Group’s Christmas Party!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

As each couple arrives, I photograph a nice Christmas portrait of them. Using our state-of-the-art dye sublimation photo printers, we instantly print them a beautiful 5×7 photo, delivered to their table in an elegant folio for them to take home as a memento of the evening. The instant gratification of this print-on-site service is always a HUGE HIT!!!

Once everyone has arrived and had a cocktail or two, I cover the president’s address. His message is always poignant, and always made memorable with a magic trick or two! Everyone then gathers for a fun group shot before dinner. The remainder of the evening is filled with merriment as everyone enjoys dinner, dancing, and the always-popular gift exchange!

I’ve been photographing this event for 3 years now. Already I’m looking forward to NEXT YEAR’s big party!!!

Trevor’s Office

I had the honor and pleasure of photographing Trevor & Britt’s beautiful destination wedding in Costa Rica last year: https://chrisandcami.com/britt-trevors-costa-rica-wedding/. So when Trevor called to say he was flying into Charleston for a couple days, and needed some new profile pictures, I jumped at the chance to photograph him in his office!

Trevor is an executive pilot for a Fortune 500 company, piloting the corporate jet to wherever his clients need to go. I photographed this image with the Nikon D4 and Nikkor 14-24 f2.8. The camera was set to tungsten White Balance. Lighting was provided by a pair of SB-800 off-camera flashes with tungsten gels on them. This lighting setup allowed the dull gray exterior skies to take on that intruguing cool blue of dusk, while keeping the cockpit looking warm and natural.

It was great to see Trevor again…and geek out over his amazing office!!!
