Hi! Thanks for being here! Most creative minds find it hard to sell themselves, and I am no exception. I have a vast amount of photography experience, but I don’t like to go on and on about it. The written word is powerful. I find it much easier to type these truths rather than speak them.
I have been a photographer for over 15 years. I photographed my first wedding while in college at Gardner-Webb University. There, I earned a Bachelor of Arts degree. I majored in Communications and accomplished a minor in Photography. I began my photography career in the dark room developing my own film. I now shoot with a Canon 5D Mark III and Canon prime Lenses.
I have photographed hundreds of events over time, including weddings, banquets, events, stage performances, family and children’s portraits, etc. I currently freelance for The Spartanburg Herald-Journal, Spartanburg Magazine and Wofford College.
My former photography accomplishments include:
Talk show host, political commentator, television producer and author, Glenn Beck
- The wedding of Television Personality Beth Troutman
- Charlotte, North Carolina’s former Mayor, Anthony Foxx
- The Carolina Panthers (Training Camp at Wofford University)
- Former Secretary of State, Madeleine Albright
Outside of photography, I’m an artist. I thrive off of creativity and enjoy many different forms of creative expression. Mainly, I sew and work with natural objects such as gourds and bamboo. I also enjoy creating videos and conducting small interviews. I’m an aspiring children’s puppeteer and have a love of theatre. I enjoy DIY projects and hoard crafting material and fabrics.
I am married to a talented free thinker. We have two young boys who LOVE the outdoors. We have a little Chihuahua/Dachshund mix named Sherlock. We have parakeets and chickens and a permaculture garden. We all love books. The boys and I are a bit obsessed with Lego.
I work mainly in the Upstate of South Carolina, specifically Spartanburg and Greenville. I also have a steady base of customers in Charlotte, NC and surrounding areas. I am open to traveling as a destination photographer.
I hope you will enjoy all of the different forms of creative expression I will share here!
