Chihuly at Biltmore Estate

For months, I heard that Chihuly at Biltmore was a thing to experience. I really didn’t know what it was, until we went during the day and saw some of the glass artwork. After that visit, my wife and I made it a point to return to see the display at night. We kept it in the back of our minds, but time was running out and the Chihuly exhibit was ending soon. Finally, we found the perfect time to visit. With just two days left until the end of the exhibit, we decided to go. Here are some images that I was able to capture that night.

Asheville Headshot Photography

Over the years, I have tried my hand at a lot of different genres of photography. Most recently, I find that most enjoyment can be found in portrait and headshot photography. Asheville is a wonderful city to "get lost" in your craft and it is also a great place to find yourself. 

Whether a client is needing corporate headshots for business or theatrical headshots for acting, I spend the first part of the session just talking. I really, really don't like to get my picture taken, so I can assume that most other people don't either. One of the keys to great headshots is to put the client at ease from the very onset of the meeting. Sure there are technical aspects that are needed for a great shot, but getting the person to connect with you (and the camera) is very important.

Most portrait sessions are taken at my studio, since there is so much equipment available and weather is never an issue. Sometimes shooting on location is needed. While shooting in the studio is very familiar, I really love shooting on location. Weather it be on a downtown street or in a law office, I love the challenge and the variety of options on each location.
