When I was down in Charleston,SC I went down the beach to photograph some people kiteboarding. Luckily I ran into this awesome Kiteboarder John Meyers @blackmarketinked, who is crazy good! He could easily get over 30ft in the air! I really wanted to do another Moon composite with action in it, so I did 😂 Let me know what you guys think! Have a great weekend! 🤙✌️🙃

Happy Monday! This was taken a few weeks back at Dry Falls. I used a flash light to light the waterfall. It was a really beautiful night for Milky Way photography! Let me know what you think! Have a great night! ✌️

This is a blue hour shot I took a few days ago of Downtown Greenville. I didn’t have my Lee Little (6 Stop ND) or Big Stopper (10 stop) with me so I stacked 15 20sec exposures in Photoshop to get the look I wanted. Hope everyone has had a great week! Don’t forget to enter the contest for a chance to win a 12x18 metal Print of the eclipse! See my previous post to enter. ✌️💚🤓

“Fall is coming”. (Bad GOT joke) I’m really excited for the fall because it’s a beautiful season. On the other hand I hate the cold and I’m going to miss the warm summer days. I had some free time after shooting a wedding last year and captured this sunset. This is on the outskirts of Greenville towards Duncan. Let me know whatcha think! Shot was taken on P4P. Have an awesome week peeps! 👌💚✌️🤓

Happy Wednesday! I took this shot the other day and showed a friend where it was at. . It’s a beautiful little gem tucked away off hwy 11 called Sweet Thing. It was roaring from all the rain we’ve been getting the past few weeks! Hope everyone is having an awesome day! Let me know what you think down below! 💚✌️

I went up to Highlands last night to shoot the Milky Way and luckily there wasn’t a cloud in the sky. I Ended up running into some really cool photographers from ATL, and got a few different compositions I was pretty happy with. This is 13 exposures stacked to reduce noise. Let me know what you you think! Have a great night! 😇✌️

This is a multi row panorama I took of the Milky Way. It’s 3 rows of 6 pictures (18 exposures total). This is a great technique to get super high res images and is great for very large prints. The dimensions are 23,602 x 14,703 which is roughly 340 mega pixels. Let me know whatch think! Have a great night and weekend! 🤓✌️(shot cropped for IG)
