Amber & Max's Wedding

Coastal Carolina Fair

Spent Saturday evening at the fair. The weather was cloudy pretty much all day, but cleared just enough to get some wonderful sunsets.

Wet Weather At The Fair

Only a handful of people braved the damp conditions yesterday at the Coastal Carolina Fair. Warren Peper from Count On 2 News wouldn't let the drizzle keep him from having a good time.

The 51st edition of the Coastal Carolina Fair begins today. The top collage is to be used on their website. The bottom photo is one of my favorites from last year's fair.

Scarecrows on the Square

I spent a few minutes yesterday across the street from my studio exploring this year's version of Scarecrows on the Square. These pumpkins caught my eye.

Upcoming Wedding

This Sunday, October 28th, we will be photographing Amber & Max's wedding. Here is a photo collage from their engagement session back in August.

Most blogs are actually diaries....

But not mine......this blog will give everyone an idea of what I do on a daily basis, photographically. I will post images and maybe even tell a little about them. As most of you know, I carry my camera just about everywhere I go. You never know when something interesting will happen, or you see something that you just have to have a photo of. I am a very visual person, always have been. I actually picked up a camera and took some photos, when I was about 3 years old. My parents and brothers took a Sunday afternoon drive to Magnolia Gardens. Being a normal 3 year old kid, I picked up my Dad's camera (when he wasn't looking of course) and proceeded to take a half a dozen black and white pictures of who knows what. My dad scolded me, but the damage was already done. I was given a Kodak 126 camera in high school, but I wanted something that took better quality photographs. I was very interested in the U.S. Space Program and the Apollo Moon Missions. The Apollo astronauts used 6x6 square format Hassleblads for their photography on the lunar surface. I was fascinated by the quality of the pictures. Plus, the square format was so cool! I knew then that photography would play a large part of my life. I almost went into the Air Force to learn photography. My father was retired Air Force, and he always took us out to the base to watch the jets fly. I was sure shooting photographs of military jets was what I wanted to do, but when the Air Force recruiter told me he couldn't guarantee the photography program, I backed out. I was just 15 seconds from signing on the dotted line.
For someone who said this would be just a "photo blog", I sure did ramble on. Anyway, check back often. I'll try to keep you interested with my photographic creations.

Heck, everyone else has a blog....

So why not me? I have added a link below to take you to my previous photo blog. I think you'll see a major difference between the two.
