Photography for Annual Report

Here are a few of my favorite photos that Kristi and I took for HCPED’s 2016 annual report. The awesome design, layout, and overlay illustrations are by Farmhouse Graphics. The last two images are spreads she created with the photos. I love how it all came together.

The locations in this post include Sierra Nevada Brewery, Gaia Herbs, GF Linamar, and the French Broad River. We went out on several different days to capture these locations with natural light, usually at sunset. Western North Carolina has some of the most beautiful skies at sunset so we took advantage of this and delivered vibrant photography for the annual report. A few of these photos were also featured in Capital at Play magazine.

All of the images were taken with Nikon. Here is some of the camera gear used for these photos:

Forsyth Park in Savannah, GA

Savannah is a gorgeous city with lots of history and romantic sites to visit. Here is one of the most recognizable landmarks in Savannah, the fountain in the middle of Forsyth Park.

Memorial Day. Thank you.

Thank you to the men and women who sacrificed their lives for our country.

Mary Alice

This amazing woman turned 100 years old today. Six months ago I took a few portraits of Mary Alice at her home in North Carolina. She has the cutest sense of humor and kept joking about how I was taking too many photos of her. It’s remarkable to ponder all that she has been through and witnessed in 100 years. Happy birthday, Mary Alice!
