“Travel & Work…” New Orleans & Hattiesburg, MS • March 2015


I was recently in the Deep South, or where I’d prefer to call “The Bayou” to photograph a wedding for friends. One challenge of the event was that I made the round trip drive to New Orleans (NOLA) and southern Mississippi in less than a week. The foundation of my career has been built on […]

Wanted to finally get this slideshow posted before the year that is 2014 actually ends in a few hours.

*My 2013 POY. (Pictures of the Year)


Where does the time go? Even though my tenure as a staff photographer at the newspaper was abruptly cut short in November due to layoffs that eliminated our entire photo staff, it was still a very gratifying year for making images. Boarded a few airplanes for out of town personal assignments, utilized remote cameras, strobes, […]
