I had the great pleasure of producing a video shoot for Grandfather Golf and Country Club and we spent our days getting beautiful scenes of the golf course, the gorgeous homes and other amenities. As we finished one evening these empty chairs by the lake were begging to be photographed . . . with the mist rising, the lights reflected, and the sky dancing with the water. It’s the edge of dusk, the edge of the lake, and the edge of summer.
I am very proud to have my work chosen for the cover photo for the second issue in a row of “Spotlight” the magazine of Methodist Home for Children. This organization continues to create positive change in the lives of children, as they have been doing for well over a century now! Visit their website www.mhfc.org to find out more about their mission. See the link Methodist Home for Children "Spotlight" Magazine to read the articles and see more of my photography.
Below is a link to several videos Warren Gentry and I produced for the Kenan Fellows Program.
“At the Kenan Fellows Program, we recognize the key role of strong teachers and the value of math and science in preparing students for the global economy. We offer North Carolina teachers competitive fellowships that provide them with training, research and resources to empower students to succeed in the classroom and beyond.”

Last week one of my yoga mentors asked if I would photograph some portraits of her for a new web page. Yoga is such a combination of strength and poise, and I wanted to make sure I captured that, as well as the light in her eyes . . . both literally and metaphorically. We worked hard together and came away with some gems. I won’t post the portraits here, but created an abstract from one of the scenes we did while she was in Natarajasana (Dancer pose) and the late afternoon sun cast her shadow behind her.
Sometimes the shadow of a thing is more interesting than the thing itself. Walking thru Charleston at dusk offered many visual opportunities to be mindful and awake, noticing the play of light.
As a child I walked home from school almost every day from the time I entered first grade until I got a car in 11th grade. Sometimes I walked alone, but more likely there was a group of us. When I saw this group of teenage boys walking home in the suburbs one day it evoked so many memories for me, along with also causing me to ponder many things about what it would be like to be growing up in this time, in this place. I am from a small town. This photograph is taken just on the outskirts of a “small town” that has grown at a remarkable pace in the last decade. It is a town in Wake County, NC and is not too far from the City of Raleigh. What do you see when you look at this?
