A SigEp Homecoming

 A SigEp Homecoming 2014

This past weekend I had the pleasure of again photographing for Sigma Phi Epsilon during their SigEp Homecoming weekend in Richmond. It was my introduction to Richmond (other than trips to the airport); we look forward to returning often.

I photographed events at Zollinger House (SigEp headquarters) and Hollywood Cemetery, where they offered a memorial service for “Uncle Billy”, one of the Founders. We traveled to Richmond University to see the Founders Walk and to hear President Edward Ayers, Ph.D share his thoughts on the competition for students’ energy and time. The Jefferson Hotel was the site for a donor function, and Wow! what lovely place to visit.

I received a much better grasp of SigEp’s history since its founding 113 years ago. Please enjoy the images!

I expect this was the last event I cover with my Nikon equipment. I am in process of switching to Sony for larger image sizes, better image quality, and a learning curve to conquer!

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.
