Happy Labor Day everyone! Ahh the slow death of Summer… and all though I do love the water, the long awaited winter brings me comfort.

I was featured on the WonderfulMachine Blog today for some work that I have shot on Labor Day’s Past…

Working on a small project of a babies hat collection. I should shoot babies more often, cause the studio required is of a much smaller scale.

Help Rebuild Raleigh

On April 16th, 2011 Raleigh, NC was hit by “the largest tornado outbreak in our state’s history.” A weather system spawning more than 25 tornados in NC alone.

22 people were killed and more than 130 injured by tornadoes and severe storms that struck 20 counties in North Carolina, 4 of them were children in a trailer park.

I was one of the fortunate not to be hit hard by the storms, and afterward, ventured out into the destruction to do what I know best. Photograph.

I met many people during my weeks of shooting, and actually befriended one of the victims. He had expressed an interest in being a photographer, and on top of that; enjoyed a drink or two (another profession I enjoy). With that, I hired him as my assistant!

It is very strange the way the world works.

This was also the first assignment that my #1 assistant helped out on… my son!

Really into trying to shoot my family recently, they have always been shy, and strayed away from my camera.

But the moments that they let their guard down, I really feel like it comes out amazing.

Was able to take some time for myself this weekend and shoot some portraits of me with my son…

Possibly one of the more stressful shoots I have ever done. I have never shot my grandfather before, and I rarely shoot my family, so I think you can imagine.

I like trying new things with lighting and mixing in some of the natural light as well. I think this came out very well. I have had some interest in its purchase already.
