BEST OF 2019

BEST OF 2019

A year where I snapped the shutter button over 22,000 times.  Its crazy to think that I took that many shots.
How do you pick the best shots?  What makes something "the best"?  

  • Do you look at popularity of a shot? 
  • Do you look at what the shot means to others?
  • How about what that shot means to you as a photographer?

I can say this, I have been so proud to know that my work has helped expand the reach of multiple companies, people, events, churches and more.
 


INSPIRE CONF:

This will ALWAYS be an event that means the world to me.  Started by a close friend, this women's conference has grown from a few dozen ladies to (this year) well over 600. It takes a ton of time, energy, and lots and LOTS of running all over the place.

I am always looking for that "one shot" that captures the emotions or moment.
This shot below is one of these shots.  It shows the power and emotion of a room filled with Christian Ladies praising God.

As a photographer we are all about 1 thing.. L I G H T!   When you can capture emotion and light and dark all in one shot, its amazing.
This one took me about 20 angles to get just right.  Love the light streaks and the whole look.  One of my all-time favorite shots!
I am planning on being at the Inspire Conf 2020 with the new camera to take even better shots!

PLAYING WITH THE CIRCUS FOLK

I have had a total blast this year working closely with Cirq-U Circus University.  I was able to shoot multiple events this year for them, along with lots of public appearances.  They are some of the move awesome folks, they give and give and are so upbeat all the time.  

I was also able to capture their first public performance of the "Dragonites" Fire Breathing at the new Cannon Ballers Naming in Kannapolis.

 

I have loved every moment working with everyone at Cirq-u.  So much so, that I have also worked individually with some of their awesome performers.

SANDBOX PROM:

I love love love this one.  Getting to use my talents to help capture this amazing event.  THE SANDBOX locks arms with the community to support the families of children with cancer, a life-altering, rare or terminal illness.  The prom is always one of the most amazing events of the year.  This was my 2nd year shooting this with the team of volunteer photographers.

 
 


CONCERTS:

I was able this year to work with the Independant Tribune shooting some concerts in Kannapolis.  These are always a blast to shoot, but also very challenging, light, people, heat, and more.

FUSION CITY CHURCH:

This is my church!  Love capturing what they are doing for their members and the community.

 

I also got to shot some great shots at Lake Community Church, where we have a ton of great friends.\


KANNAPOLIS CRUISE-IN

I have been shooting this event for years and years.  This year, it was plagued by rain, rain and more rain.  It only managed to run a few times this year.  I love shooting there, all the awesome cars, the people are always so nice, and i love the backdrop of Kannapolis.

OFFICER BAILEY

I have known Office Bailey for most of her life.  We became blackbelts together.  She has always been an amazing young lady, working hard to make a difference in this world.  She got her "Ride" and wanted me to help capture some shots of her.
It was an honer to work with her.


RALEIGH GALEXYCON

I offered up my talents to work with the photography team at GalaxyCon Raleigh.  This was some of the hardest photography work I have ever done.  3 days (10+ hrs each) trying to capture panels, cosplayers, celebs and soo much more.
