Food Photography for Queens Magazine

I absolutely love working with the Queens University of Charlotte team. They are always pushing the boundaries and coming up with fresh ways to make their magazine and marketing products shine through their photography and graphics. Laura, their super talented marketing and magazine designer, reached out with a very cool idea she had for a multi-page editorial story. Continue reading

A Conversation with Michael Lewis

Had a great time photographing best-selling author and journalist Michael Lewis during his speaking event at the Knight Theater at Levine Center for the Arts. His lecture, which was hosted by The Learning Society of Queens University of Charlotte, discussed the inspiration for some of his most notable book/story ideas and the fascinating relationships he built pursuing those stories.

Company Holiday Party


The Charlotte Pediatric Dentistry staff seriously knows how to have a good time. Had the pleasure of covering this fun crew’s Holiday Party at Dressler’s Restaurant. Laughter filled the room as they played various games for prizes. My favorite was the Siamese twin gift-wrapping race where each team of two had to wrap a present using only one hand. The expressions were priceless. Continue reading

SRB S’mores

While visiting friends back in Jackson Hole, Wyo., my friend, Kelsey, informed me about a dessert that apparently convinced her to move to Jackson. This may sound irrational, but if you knew Kelsey, you would understand. So naturally, I had to see what this Kelsey-moving dessert was all about. The s’more delicacy is served at local watering hole, Snake River Brewery, which also serves a killer bowl of elk chili. When the plate arrived, I couldn’t believe how awesome it looked. I had no intention of taking photos that afternoon, but there’s no way I could pass this up. It was gorgeous. After getting lip from Kelsey to hurry up the photo shoot and and stop torturing her, we finally dug in. Holy graham crackers, was this plate good. Needless to say, Kelsey and I practically licked the plate clean. I can not wait to go back next year.



I couldn’t help but notice how pretty the stir fry looked in my bowl. So, I snapped off a couple photos before chowing down.
