The blog has been quiet for a good part of this year, but I can assure you that it has not been because of a lack of images. This year, has been an incredibly busy one with different assignments for Tastebuds, Creation Illustrated and the Archaeology Department at Southern Adventist University. Looking back over this year, I am amazed at the range of opportunities that presented themselves and the images created as a result. This next year is already shaping up to be a year full of photographic endeavors as I continue to push myself to create images that are more dynamic and clearly illustrate the story. So, here is 2014 as it appeared through my lens. Enjoy. :)
4 weeks ago the Collegedale Public Library asked me to photograph a series of patrons for their Geek the Library campaign. Theses photographs were not your normal formal portraits, eyes staring straight ahead, with what you hope will be a genuine smile on the subjects face. The people I photographed were normal people that you run into at the store, who are passionate about something in life. The word geek, as used in this campaign means to be passionate or highly knowledgeable about an item or subject.
A few of the people who I photographed had been asked ahead of time to come in and be photographed, however the majority were patrons who happened to be at the library during the time the photographs were being taken. From young children, teens, adults and older persons, the range of personalities, expressions and geeks made the shoots a memorable experience. You can stop by the Collegedale Public Library, and see the posters hanging from the ceiling in the main section of the library as you walk towards the front desk as well as in the children’s reading area. Enjoy the photos. :)
