Cheers! It is my birthday!
Ah birthdays. What a great time of year to reflect and learn and grow from another year’s passage on one’s journey through life. My last year has been on crazy ride but I know in my heart that everything was for the best and I have matured significantly as a result.
It must be fitting that today I officially started a new business with a new partner. As well, I plan to focus deeply on my photography business in the year to come and I working very hard to grow. If you have ever enjoyed any of my photos, please use the promo code below and buy an image. Every little bit helps!
Today, February 4th, is my birthday and in celebration I am offering a 25% off coupon for a discount on the purchase of any images from my website in the next 24 hours. So Read More
In the past two weeks, my life has dramatically changed in a great way! I finished my last full semester in college (I am taking one final class this Spring to finish my degree), moved out of Milledgeville and into my Dad’s house, started my corporation, and got a ‘real’ job.
The name of my new corporation is WG International, Inc. This is the company I will be running my photo business through as well as any other business ventures I decide to pursue (which will be many). Through this company, I will be working for The Decisive Moment and The Orange Block.
The Decisive Moment is a Wedding Photography company that I have recently started working for. All of my weddings will now go through them. So if you or any of your friends are in the market for a wedding photographer, be sure the check me out there!
The Orange Block is an Education Marketing photography company based in Atlanta, Ga. I have assisted for these guys on a bunch of edu shoots and have had a blast, now I get do it on my own. This should be a lot of fun. Again, if you know any schools that might need some photography be sure to send them this way!
ShootQ is innovative online photography studio management software and I have recently joined their team as the Customer Service Manager. This is an amazing opportunity for me to develop my business skills with some great business people and get a salary while I build my photo business. Be sure to go have a look at the website and see what you think. If any of you guys are photographers, you really should check out the site.
Thanks to all of my faithful readers for not giving up on me! This is the new location for my blog, so be sure to bookmark this page since my old blog will no longer be updated.

Back on April 28, Ben (my roommate) and I set out to find a photo themed “GROWTH” near my dad’s house in Cleveland, Ga. Due to the language of the contract for the contest, I was not able to post this image until after the final jugding took place else I might be disqualified. So here it is at long last. I decided to satirize the theme when we happened upon this phone booth at the Blood Mountain Store north of Helen, Ga.
Go vote for my entry in the Apple Insomnia Photo Contest, please!!!Link to my image.This was a pretty cool contest in which I had 24 hours to come up with a photo for the theme “GROWTH.” Unfortunately, due to the rules of this contest, I can’t post the image until the judging is over. So please go look and vote.
In an effort to streamline keeping all of my friends and family updated with my photography, I have added a mailing list to my blog. This list will only send message when I choose to send them out, not every single time I post. So go subscribe!
My flight from Atlanta got in at about 12pm Cali time, so I am officially at the Sports Shooter Academy III! If you missed my post a few months ago about the Academy, you can read more here. I took a nice small nap thanks to my 7:45am departure time, but all is well. I just got done with an early bird digital workflow session where they went over PhotoMechanic in detail and the workshop officially kicks off at 7:30pm tonight. Below is a link to the images I am going to get the faculty to critique here before this things really gets started; well if they have time. Look for more posts soon.Pre SSA III Portfolio

I got accepted to the Sport Shooter Academy!!!! But, I didn’t get into the Eddie Adams workshop. Oh well, I think that SSAIII is going to be much more useful with all the hands on experience that I will gain from this workshop. It is Nov. 1-5 in Orange County, Calif. We will have press credentials for NCAA D-I Sports with some amazing sports photographers going with us just so we can pick their brains. Plus, there are lots of lectures and classes and amazing people to ask all the questions I want. I am SOOOO excited!! (By the way, this is an old photo, but I thought it was apporiate for the post)Read more about the workshop here.
