About me

Gender MALE
Occupation Two full time occupations, commercial photography ( and commercial offset-printing.
Location Charleston, South Carolina, United States
Introduction Having traveled coast to coast in my early years, I finally settled in Charleston with my wife, Becky, where I've been photographing commercially since 2001, providing colorful Charleston photo stock through my website, Some images on my blog are from my film days when I shot Velvia slide film with Nikon and Canon SLR's and an assortment of lenses. In 2009 I switched to digital, and now photograph with a Canon 5D Mk II camera and an EF 24-105mm f/4L lens. My strengths lie in portraying a sense of light and color. My favorite subjects include landscapes, cityscapes and gardenscapes, though the odd and humorous will catch my eye too.
