Back in the Saddle

Charlottesville downtown mall photography

I said I would share why I have been away from photography. The short version is that I had prostate cancer and surgery in November 2013. Please visit my new blog Dead Man Walking to find out the whole story. I now have a passion to help other men going through PCa, so please share!

Back to photography now!

It has been too long since I have felt like shooting. Fortunately, a friend needs some images for his new business site. (Thanks, Sean!) I started capturing some Charlottesville downtown mall photography last night. Thanks to my wife and dog who endured a too-late evening!

It has been about 11 months since I last updated this site. I hope to catch everyone up soon as to what’s been going on. For now, my church asked me to add some more officers and staff location portraits to our site at Grace Community Church (PCA). No problem, except it has been about a year since I last shot there, and I still wanted the images to look as though they all belonged together.

I normally shoot location portraits with 5 lights (key, fill, background, hair, and rim). I shot these images with only a 46″ Photek Softlighter II as a key, and a 60″ Photek Softlighter II as a fill and spill onto the background, both with nylon diffusers.

I think I came pretty close to matching the previous images here.

My wife and I are new members of Grace Community Church (http://www.cvillegrace.org/) in Charlottesville, VA. GCC is a PCA (Presbyterian Church in America) church, located 4 miles north of the Charlottesville airport and just off of 29 North. Coming from Charlottesville, just look for the Psychic on the right (not kidding!), then make the next left onto Dickerson and follow the signs.

We were drawn to the sound, winsome, honest, and transparent teaching of Don Ward and Tag Tuck. I am honored to be part of a team that has been working on Grace Community Church‘s new website. These are some images for the site, which rolled out today.

I want the images to honor God, be interesting, and communicate who we are. More images are certainly needed, but I am pleased with the first batch.
