A quick preview of photographing Chelsea, a wheaten terrier at Elon last weekend with her owner. A beautiful Saturday with the picturesque backdrop of Elon University’s campus. Chelsea was quite the model! And yes, those are pearls!

Returning to St. Louis!
I am blessed enough to be back in St. Louis, MO for Urbana ’12. Urbana is a student missions conference put on every three years through Intervarsity Christian Fellowship. I was able to attend as a student during the 2009 conference and had such a life changing experience, I knew that I wanted to come back and serve with my skills as a photographer at the 2012 conference. I have been humbled and awed by the talents of the 6 other awesome photographers I’m working with. We all have our own specialties which has been very cool to see unfold as we work. My work on the team includes collaborating with the daily conference newspaper “Urbana Today” writers to help produce photos to go with their stories as well as covering different sessions and workshops. Yesterday an article about the conference’s impact on the city of St. Louis needed a downtown shot. After a little exploring I found my way to the top of the Hilton Hotel in the rooftop restaurant and bar 360. What an awesome view (both photos of city from 360)! The restaurant itself is very modern and low key. Very reasonable on prices for both food and drinks and a heck of a view for Cardinals games! Thank you to the staff for being patient with a wandering photographer!
Changing color photos to black and white can take many routes. I would warn against converting to grayscale or clicking the “black and white” conversion button. If you need a quick conversion, go for it. But if you are looking to control the color details I would recommend the following link at Adobe Layers.
Using Adobe Lightroom, they suggest adjusting each level of color saturation individually and then working with the luminance to achieve your desired “look.” Be sure to make a copy and never work on the original file!
See the original color versions of these photos here.

I have been blessed to be working with Regan & Company Real Estate Brokers and Advisers since June of this year. Thank you to Cole Gorman of Blest Photography who got me the connection and trained me how to photograph real estate well.
If you are looking for a real estate photographer as a broker, or as a homeowner looking to give your home that extra edge to get it to sell, professional photos are a game changer.
In my experience so far I have learned the importance of getting the photos back to the seller/broker quickly. I have the photos done and back to the client within 24 hours when it comes to real estate, because the sooner the posting is online, the more views it can get.
I’m here to help you SELL!
Meet the beautiful couple, Bradley and Lauren. I was so blessed to work with these two all after
noon last Friday as we traveled around the campuses of NCSU and Meredith and then of course to the NC State Fair. They were so much fun to work with and both so extremely genuine. And they are definitely in love with each other! Great couple to work. It was difficult to pick just a few photos to post because they composed so many good ones together!
Congratulations you two, thank you for letting me be a part of your day.
Last night was both a visual spectacle to photograph, as well as heartwarming trip down memory lane to recognize ten of N0rth Carolina State’s best athletes.
As the photographer for Creative Visions, I had access to all the angles of event. More than anything I was in awe of the stories and humility of those inducted. Reminded me why I love watching sports, but more than anything the WOLFPACK!
Congratulations to the inductees:
Genia Beasley, Ted Brown, Everett Case, Roman Gabriel, Tab Ramos, Jim Ritcher, Julie Shea (I ran cross country with both her sons in high school!), David Thompson (He spoke at FCA in middle school!), Jim Valvano, Kay Yow.
