I know it’s been a bit since I last updated, but I have been super busy for the last few weeks. The new house keeps throwing us surprises and fun. I will be posting photos of our rehab once it is all finished. We had a party and that was a blast, although quite a bit of work getting everything ready. After the party I had 3 days of 3-4 shoot days, then it was off to Montauk, which could be my new favorite place on earth. In Montauk I shot the wedding of a great friend of mine, Willis, with another great friend Cary Conover as a second shooter. The wedding was awesome and I hope that Willis and Emily had a great time in South America on their honeymoon. After the wedding, Lesley and I spent a couple of days in NY staying at the Cooper Square Hotel, which I have to say was pretty awesome! It is one of those funky boutique hotels with an awesome view of the Empire State Building and the Chrysler Building looking uptown. NY was fun, I’ll talk some more about that in the next post. We finished our trip with stops in Freehold, NJ, Philly, Harrisburg, PA and Harpers Ferry, WV. We then got home and I was super sick for about 5 days, then better for 2, then massive ear/jaw ache for 5. That could have been a disaster as we thought it was tooth related, but a trip to Miami, where I am tonight, and a visit to the endodontist has ruled that out. For now.
So, what about all the work I’ve been doing? Well, I can finally show some! I’ve been working the last 3 months for Charlotte Magazine and Our State Magazine, both NC based publications. I’ve done some work thru the assignment division of Getty Images, including one gig for GQ Magazine and Bombay Sapphire Gin for their best bartender contest. I’ve done some local work in Charlotte for a restaurant called Mez with an awesome art director, Jeff Moss. There is even more work, including a cover shot, upcoming and I will post that work when I can. But until then here are some layouts from Our State and some images form the other shoots!
From Our State, this is an awesome German restaurant in Hickory, NC, the Old German Schnitzel Haus.
Shooting at the Hampton Farms Peanut plant was one of the best and most fun assignments I’ve had in a long time!
This is bartender Stefan Huebner of Cosmos Café in Ballantyne, NC
These are some of the ads that Jeff put together with my shots from Mez, in the Epi Center in uptown Charlotte.
This is a shot of one of Mez’s most awesome dishes, Prawns stuffed with Goat Cheese.

These were shot for a review of the NODA restaurant the Crepe Cellar, I have not seen the printed piece yet so I picked a few of my favorite shots.
