Speedlight Sunset
  • Speedlight Sunset

  • I love photographing on overcast days. The light is soft, the colors are saturated, and the subjects don't squint as much. But sometimes the images come out a little flat and lack impact...kinda just blah. Fortunately, I have a great little tip to keep all the benefits of the soft natural light, but[...]
1 Camera, 9 Flashes
  • 1 Camera, 9 Flashes

  • Last night I had the oportunity to photograph the Charleston Legislative Group before their first meeting of 2017. With limited time, a confined space, and heavy foot traffic through the area, I elected to use an all wireless setup. This was a simple bank of windows in the study area of the Lowco[...]
South Atlantic Bank
  • South Atlantic Bank

  • South Atlantic Bank's new regional headquarters in Mount Pleasant is beginning to take shape. The in-ground items, including plumbing and electricity are in place and the concrete has been poured for the first floor. We will see the building "go vertical" as framing gets underway. The 8,000 squar[...]
Taylor's Modeling Portfolio
  • Taylor's Modeling Portfolio

  • Last night our friend Robin brought her beautiful daughter, Taylor, to model for me and a few of my crazy fun photographer friends! All images were shot with a Nikon D4 and Nikkor 70-200 f2.8. I used a Nikon SB-5000 as a Master flash to trigger 3 SB-800 Remote flashes. Two SB-800 flashes were gan[...]
Graham & Clint with the Nikon D500
  • Graham & Clint with the Nikon D500

  • Graham and Clint are two of the TOP body builders in the entire state! Next weekend they'll be competing in the IFBB NBC South Carolina Grand Prix. That means they are now in peak form. So I jumped at the chance to photograph them!!! Even though they've been in Charleston a long time, one of thei[...]
  • Studio Portrait for SCFCU

  • 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[...]
  • Anchor Commercial

  • My “Double Your Pleasure” post about the team photos I did for ESPN got such a big response!  So I thought I’d share this group photo I did last weak using the same technique.  Anchor Commercial has been a client of ours for many years.  One of the things they have me photograph for them each Nov[...]
  • Double Your Pleasure

  • I used to love those Wrigley’s commercials…”Double your pleasure with double-mint gum”.  J  At my workshops, one of the questions I get a lot is “how do you get enough power out of those little flashes for big groups”?  Well, I double (or even triple) them up.  I have a couple home-modified umbr[...]
  • A Kiss of Light

  • I am, and always will be, a student of light!  Most days I can find absolutely gorgeous natural light to work with.  But sometimes a shot needs a little extra “something”.  During this fun shoot with James & Ashleigh and their beautiful daughter, I started photographing this story-telling sce[...]
  • RadioPopper Goes to Romania

  • I have been a HUGE fan of RadioPoppers since they liberated me from the line-of-sight limitations of my Nikon Creative Lighting System.  I absolutely LOVE the versatility, dependability, and control that the whole Nikon CLS flash system gives me.  Extending all those qualities to HUNDREDS of feet[...]
  • Product Photography

  • Although I primarily showcase our wedding/portrait work on here, we photograph a wide variety of subjects and genres.  So I thought I’d write a post about a fun shoot I did for healer Ayal Hurst the other day.  She’s a long-time client of ours and so full of positive energy.  It’s always a pleasu[...]
  • Light Bending 411 Encore

  • I’ve been getting such WONDERFUL feedback from the Wireless Lighting Workshops I’ve been teaching.  THANK YOU to everyone that has participated and made it such a success.  I’ll be teaching my “Light Bending 411” course again on November 6th!  I’ve been asked by The Aroostook F-Stops, an extremely[...]
