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:
Check out the March 2015 issue of Our State which includes an Asheville, NC photo of mine on page 68.
Equipment I used to take the Asheville photo: Nikon D4 & Nikon 24-70mm f/2.8.
Today I received the first issue of Blindfold Magazine. It’s a ‘socially conscious photojournalism quarterly’ focusing on important issues. According to their site it’s about people and companies doing things outside of the box with an emphasis on giving back.
There is a story about my hometown of Asheville, NC in this issue which features several of my photos. I was thrilled that the magazine’s print quality and paper is gorgeous.
Ian Somerhalder is on the cover; he was in Lost and currently stars in Vampire Diaries (which he “sucks” in) and they interview him about his charitable organization IS Foundation. Good stuff! I recommend ordering a limited edition copy, not just because my photos are in it, but because it’s a magazine with a great cause. You can order a copy right here:
I did not photograph the cover photo of Ian Somerhalder. Though I would do a photo shoot with him in exchange for a Vampire Diaries t-shirt
