“Night Strolling” – Isle of Palms, SC

A gorgeous evening for a stroll under the stars. This was shot directly towards downtown Charleston and straight into all the light pollution. In a twisted way I really like the color and light that it adds.

I was suprised to see so much flooding on Isle of Palms, probably due to the super high […]

Camping on Capers Island

It was just Josh Carlisle and me and our kayaks. A whole island to ourselves.

Somehow we got all our gear into the kayaks and made our way out to the Island. We also managed to navigate perfectly despite the heavy fog. It was weird paddling out into the channel and then hearing […]

A few weeks back I had the distinct pleasure of taking a client to Botany Bay for a stormy sunrise. We had a blast negotiating the trees and surf and geting wet capturing really moody images. I’ve been so busy that I barely have had time to look through these images and […]

Stark, Smooth Blues & Heaven Above – Private Workshop Charleston SC

On Thursday evening and Friday morning I had the distinct pleasure of taking a client and new friend Tricia Booker out to photograph some of my favorite locations in and around Charleston.  We started off with a light dinner and discussion on filters and long exposures at one of Sullivan’s Island’s hot spots.  After […]

Abstract beach sunrise

Happy Monday!

What do you do with a cloudless featureless sky, and an impending sunrise.  Well you can pack it in, or you can get creative.  Here I tried out a few techniques that I’d used long ago and almost forgotten about.  I like the negative space.   I need to do more of these. […]

Set Adrift – Capers Island, South Carolina

A few weeks ago Josh Carlisle and I jumped in Kayaks with all our gear and paddled out to Capers Island about 3 miles offshore from Charleston. It took us a little bit to squash it all in but eventually we were ready to go. As we paddled through the creeks and sound we […]

Finding an Interesting Composition – Fort Fisher, NC

Choosing a subject and finding the best composition
When you are out in the field how do you go about finding and choosing the subjects you photograph? Does it come easy to you? Is it something you need to work at?
