I always have fun photographing assignments for Dixon Hughes Goodman! Here are a few from our day of photographing updated head-shots for them…
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! 🙂 Check him out at www.christopherteves.com.
I had the distinct honor of photographing new Business Portraits for Marie Lowery last week!
Marie was a very kind referral from Scott Falls, who’s head-shots and promotional portraits I photographed last year. Both are amazing attorneys in their respective fields, though often collaborating together together. So when Marie was considering having some new images made to help market and brand herself in 2016, he gave her my name. Thanks Scott & Ashley!!!
Marie and I had an awesome time, finding some fantastic backdrops in the old French Quarter in downtown Charleston. Congratulations on your incredible success, Marie! Here’s to an even more amazing 2016!!!
When we’re not shooting weddings and events on weekends, we photograph lots of head shots and executive portraits throughout the week. South Carolina Federal Credit Union has been sending their employees over to us for a couple years now. Jessica just joined their team and needed photos for a press release. This image was shot with a giant 6-foot LiteDome softbox to her left as the main light, a medium softbox behind and on her right as a kicker light, a small softbox on a boom above her for a hair light, and an SB-800 right behind her as a background light. I like using small wireless strobes as my background light since it’s wireless and I don’t have to worry about cables showing in the photo if I do a full-length shot. The rest of the light sources were Alien Bees, which are triggered with the RadioPopper Jr (Studio Version) radio triggers. The image was shot with a Nikon D2x (which I use exclusively in the studio), and the 70-200 f2.8.
My friend and extraordinary real-estate agent, Nick Maffia, came over the other day to update his portfolio of images for his brochures, business cards, and marketing material. He’s lost a lot of weight recently and looks GREAT! Nick sold our old house and helped us buy the one we’re in. I highly recommend him if you need a real estate agent!
