Serenbe

First off, I want to say I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving with friends and familyA few weeks back, I worked on a fashion shoot at Serenbe located just south of Atlanta in Palmetto, GA. Had a great time except for the inclement weather. And as usual, the weather got better towards the end of the shoot. Here are a few snapshots I took with my cell phone...

Connecting Flight

I had an hour layover at Dallas-Fort Worth airport waiting on a connecting flight back to Atlanta. To occupy my time, I decided to get my camera out and take some pictures. That was the biggest mistake I had ever made. Within a few minutes the Dallas police were all over me. They confiscated my camera and started asking all kinds of questions. Once they reviewed the images on my camera and did a full background check, they let me go and told me to stop taking pictures. If you don't want to get hassled at the airport, learn from my mistake, don't take pictures because big brother is watching...

Alys Beach, FL

About 35 miles due west of Panama City Beach, lies a community on Hwy. 30A known as Alys Beach. The architecture is amazing. It has the feeling of a small Mediterranean town by the sea. I went down to assist on photo shoot and do post production work with photographer Colleen Duffley. Colleen's studio and art gallery are located here also. It's known as Studio b. If you're ever in the area you should check it out...

Photo Montages

While driving to the studio from home, I'll often come across some interesting subject matter (to me) to photograph. Seeing that I had a little extra time one morning, I dropped by The Great Gatsby which is just around the corner from the studio. Outside, there are statues that stand at least 12 ft. tall. So I grabbed the camera with a Lensbaby lens and shot several frames. Here are 3 images that I captured. I used OnOne Photoframes 4.5 in post production with selected blend modes to achieve the effects I wanted...

Remembering an Old Friend...

It's been 11 years now since Wayne has passed...seems just like yesterday. He was a great photographer. I really liked his style...especially the polaroid emulsions on glass (which I am the proud owner of 2 pieces BTW). Too bad he was taken before his prime. I can only imagine what kind of work he would have produced. Thanks my friend for inspiring me to become a photographer...

Photo Shoot

This week I did a photo shoot with Nfinity Athletics. Nfinity is the first team sport company to produce products specifically engineered for the female athlete. For this project, I did some action shots with a model wearing volleyball apparel. Thanks to Christine Shelby (Volleyball Brand Manager) and Lauren (our model) for making this shoot go smoothly...we had a great time!

Here are some behind the scene photos of the shoot...

Amicalola Falls

This past weekend, I went on a day hike in Amicalola Falls State Park. Amicalola is a Cherokee word meaning tumbling water. The falls are the highest east of the Mississippi River. It is located just north of Dawsonville, GA and at the southern most end of the Appalachian Trail on Springer Mountain. Here are a few pics from this series...

PDK

A couple of weeks ago, I had the opportunity to assist fellow photographer/friend, Charley Akers, on an aircraft shoot. The location was at Peachtree-DeKalb Airport in Chamblee, GA (suburb of Atlanta). I want to thank him for allowing me to shoot some "behind the scene" photos for my blog. Scroll over Charley's name to check out his website...

Monroe, GA

First of all...I want to wish everyone a Happy St. Patrick's Day. After a month, I'm finally getting around to posting some new pics. Recently, I went on a location shoot for Quadras Integrated to a tree farm in Monroe, GA. During my "free" time (lunch break), I was able to experiment with a Lensbaby Composer with wide angle adapter on a Canon 1Ds Mark II. Nik Silver Efex Pro was used in post production.
