Clemson and Anderson SC photography | shooting a shooter!

Last weekend my longtime internet friend Sherri Winstead was able to spend a few days visiting me. Sherri and I have “known” each other since 1998 when we were both worked on a scrapbooking design team, and then as we both moved to professional photography businesses. Our friend Michelle Haley from Atlanta was able to come for a day as well. We spent a lot of time talking about  the stress/rewards of photography as a business and making it all balance in terms of profitability versus the sheer number of hours worked and expenses involved. One thing we all lamented was the fact that we don’t shoot “for fun” as much as we’d like.  So Sherri and I spent one full day just taking our cameras and shooting in all sorts of locations and lighting conditions – mostly crazy full overhead sun – and fine tuning some techniques such as off-camera flash using each other for feedback ( and models!).  Sherri needed some updated images for her website, so I was happy to oblige. Here is my favorite on of her, taken in a clearing under some power lines that is the closest thing to a field that I have nearby – flash used on this one because of the bright sun-

Then we actually did a child photo shoot together, and it was interesting to see what THAT looks like from the perspective of the client! This was one Sherri got of me:

And I did some of her:

And  what WE see when we’re doing this-

Hello Friends

I have the coolest job in the world. I get to create gorgeous images of beautiful kids and families, so they can remember these precious days forever!

I live on Lake Keowee in SC, but I travel frequently back to the Pittsburgh/Washington PA area and do sessions in BOTH places!
