sunday at the ima

Portraiture

One of the first people to contact me when I finally got round to getting this gig up and running ‘officially’ was Jenny; a friend of mine from my time working at First Advantage. Jenny is such a fun and carefree character to be with, that I was really looking forward to taking pics with her and her family. We had to put the shoot back a couple of weeks given the recent storms, but I couldn’t have asked for a better day to spend some time with them at the gardens of the IMA. Men and boys usually approach a photography session with all the enthusiasm of receiving a kick in the goolies, but Chris and the lads were on top form despite the heat and humidity. There was a fair amount of banter between us and I think it shows in the photos that we all had a bit of a laugh. It really was a great experience (for me at least!).

Anyway, this is the slideshow I put together for Jenny. She told me she cried when she first saw it. I’m not sure if that’s due to the photos or Kenny Chesney’s warbling, but hey. I’ll take what I can get. Enjoy!

Geek notes: Canon EOS 5D Mark II with 24-70 f/2.8 L USM and 50D with 70-200 f/4 L IS USM and 85 f/1.8 USM

Last week, I headed over to UNC in Chapel Hill to shoot some UNC Chapel Hill graduation photographer portraits for Lauren, who has just graduated with a degree in Business and Dramatic Art. We started off at the Old Well where we took some traditional graduation portraits, before heading for a walk around campus looking for interesting light and areas to shoot some more experimental/dramatic stuff. Here are just a few of my faves from the shoot.

It's been a really hectic few weeks for me between one thing and another, so I was really looking forward to meeting up with Trisha and her family for a shoot at the IMA. Trisha and I used to work together when I lived in Cincinnati, and it was great to see her and her husband Chris again after almost 4 years. They drove in from Dayton, OH that morning bringing their two fun boys, Quinn and Liam, with them. We went for a wander around and got some really nice pics. Here is the pick of the crop.

I was recently given the pleasure of being asked to do some corporate shots for Eric and the team at All Around Raleigh DJ. I'd worked with Eric earlier in the season at a wedding at Magnolia Manor, which he did a really fantastic job with, so I was really pleased to head over and do some portraits for him and his team for use on the website. We mixed up some shots inside and out for a couple of different vibes all using natural light from the setting sun. Anyone looking for a Raleigh Wedding DJ should head over to the All Around Raleigh DJ site and drop Eric a line. They really are a great crew to work with: fun, professional and classy. ...
