Had the wonderful privilege in photographing the dedication ceremony of Porter B. Byrum Hall at Queens University of Charlotte in honor of Mr. Byrum’s unprecedented generosity to Queens.
I’m so excited to share some photos that are now featured on Queens University’s new interactive tour website. Back in July, Queens Creative Director Drea Leonetti reached out to me to see if I could help them with marketing photography for a new electronic view book they planned to launch. They really wanted to create photos that illustrated the community feel of attending Queens and how connected the students are on campus. Continue reading
I was recently asked by friend Whitney Combs to cover the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s 2014 Man & Woman of the Year. Combs was a candidate for the award, and I was happy to help her campaign. This touching charity event honored the 2014 Boy and Girl of the Year, as well as the men and women of Charlotte’s community who raised the most funds for blood cancer research during their 10-week-long campaign.

My good friend, Drew Parham of Audio To Go Entertainment, put me in contact with TIAA-CREF for an upcoming business conference they were hosting at the Embassy Suites in Concord. They were looking for event photography to document their four-day long conference, and had some incredibly fun, photogenic events lined up. I brought in fellow photojournalist Josh Stilwell to be my second set of eyes, and he did an amazing job helping me capture some great, candid moments. Continue reading
After receiving and setting up my Freefly MoVI M5 gimbal, I was itching to try it out on a fun, action-oriented event. Coincidentally, the 3rd Annual NoDa Grand Prix was gearing up that weekend, and I knew this would be the perfect first challenge to test the rig out. It took about an hour to really get a feel for the system, but overall, it was a breeze to handle. The final result definitely proved that the money spent on this stabilization system was well worth it. It added a whole new feel to my shots and proved to be such a useful, lightweight tool.
Queens University celebrated its annual Scholars Luncheon in the Frances Young Dining Room on April 2, 2014. The Luncheon recognizes the University’s generous donors and provides scholarship recipients an opportunity to offer their thanks in person. As usual, Director of Donor Relations Lizz Clegg and Assistant Director of Alumni Relations Meghan Goddard did a wonderful job putting together and carrying out the event. It was truly a beautiful and memorable afternoon.
