May Photo Challenge : Silhouette

rtsf may contest

This pretty much sums up what it’s like in to be the only boy in our family of all girls. While his sisters were off playing on the beach I found him alone on the swings, they weren’t much higher than 2 and a half feet off the ground so I had to lay low and put the camera down in the sand to get this shot, but it was so worth it.

There’s so many fabulous entries over at stop over and check them out!

I’m in love with photos on canvas, I’ve been ordering them for my clients for almost 8 years now and I finally got around to getting some of my own.

Beyond Photojournalism : {Buffalo Area Photographer}

Before I left the Gulf Coast I had the pleasure of working with the University of Mobile and tagging along as their students participated in a Project Share, it’s a wonderful program and I enjoyed watching them interact with local Veterans and students and was excited to see one of those images on the cover of the Fall edition of their magazine.  Making the transition from full-time photojournalist into a more broad spectrum of photography has been fun and also a little challenging, yesterday I had a great time working all day on a commercial shoot and at the same time scheduling for an up coming maternity and newborn session. I’m definitely a journalist at heart but glad to be able to use all the skills I learned in my 16 year newspaper career and branch out , there’s never a dull moment as a photographer.
