Lots of Fishing Photography 8/18/11
I shot a lot of fishing in the last few weeks for fishing guide clients and future magazine work. I split my time shooting with Captain Rob Beglin up in Georgetown and Captain Jeremy Mehlhaff in the Charleston area. On one trip local ER Doc and champion tarpon fisherman Dr. David Dalu joined Jeremy and myself for a shoot. Here are some shots from a few of the fishing shoots:
Editorial and Commercial Work 8/3/11
I spent the last couple of weeks working for a number of different commercial clients and finishing up work on an article I'm writing and shooting for Eastern Fly Fishing Magazine. One of the shoots was for local marketing company Rawle Murdy and their client Patriots Point. We shot in and around the Yorktown for a couple of days. Despite the heat it was a great shoot with great people.

Charleston Magazine Cover and Photo Essay 7/26/11
I just returned from a week out of town and received my copy of the August Charleston Magazine with my wildlife photo essay and cover! It was great to finally work with the fantastic people over at Charleston Magazine and I'm extremely happy with the way it turned out. They had social media voting on Facebook and Twitter to choose which one of my photos would be on the cover and the bobcat won. You can check out some of the pages here, or better yet go pick up a copy of the magazine to see all 10 pages. You can also check out the voting and chime in if you'd like at: Charleston Mag's Facebook page or go to CharlestonMag.com to see more.
Crested Butte, Colorado 7/6/11
Last week we went on a summer family trip to our old adopted home-town, Crested Butte, CO. We had a great trip visiting with great friends and reintroducing our children to the rivers and mountains of the West. Crested Butte had a huge snow year (that went way too long) so the rivers were swollen and the wildflowers were amazing. We floated the Gunnison and Taylor rivers rode the chairlift to the peak and four-wheeled way into the backcountry to show our daughters' some of our favorite places. It was not a photo trip, but I did manage to take a few shots along the way.

Schermer Pecan Shoot With Stitch Design Co. 6/16/11
I had a product shoot this week with Amy and Courtney at Stitch Design Co. (stitchdesignco.com) They just finished a new logo and packaging line for their client, Schermer Pecan Company from Glenville Georgia. We spent the morning shooting the various products in and out of the new packaging while Amy and Courtney shared the styling. We took advantage of the great light streaming into their Cannon Street office and may have sampled a tiny bit of product for inspiration.
More Time on the Water 6/13/11
more time on the water shooting for the fly-fishing articles I mentioned before my Smokies trip. Several of my trips were with Captain Jeremy Mehlhaff of CharlestonShallows.com exploring some new areas and catching a few sunrises and sunsets while throwing flies.
The Smokies 6/6/11
I took a quick trip to Great Smoky Mountains National Park last week with my daughters who just got out of school for the summer. I can't believe I've never been there! It's an easy five-hour drive and an amazing place. We stayed just outside the park in Townsend Tennessee for two nights and spent every day-light hour exploring and searching for bears. We ended the trip with a count of 19 bears and at least half were cubs. We will return soon!
