Where in the world have I been? This poor BLOG has been idle for a while. Let's see? I'm going to post a few shots from a couple of events. I took the CREW, my lovely wife and one of my daughters, Lucy to Mexico for a shoot. Lots of work and lots of fun. AND I moved my studio. After 14 years in the same huge space it was time. I've gone from 8000 square feet to 1800. Rough move. The move took about 3 weeks, a couple of yard sales, and a couple of dumpsters...and the patience of Lauren. OH YEH, and I tried to keep working the entire time. Thanks to all involved. Mis Amigos and my family and crew.

There are those jobs and shoots that really stand out and this is one of them. Benji, Jason Barkley, and I worked hard to get that perfect image. Just the one that says, "Benji". I think we did it and now it's out there circling the world. Benji, thanks for the opportunity. I enjoyed it. Hey, put me on the list next time you play.

There are times that this job really takes me to wonderful places. I have the opportunity to see such incredible places and meet some of the most interesting people you can imagine. Some trips even afford me the chance to hang out in these incredible places with my lovely wife Lauren. One such trip in August took us WAY South to Tulum, Mexico. I spent a little time working on an upcoming shoot and a lot of time exploring. These are some of the people we met and some of the places we visited. I can't wait to do a final edit and post a few more. Enjoy.

Just recently I had an opportunity to shoot for an incredible organization, Flashes of Hope. Having lost a father to cancer and having personally battled cancer, I have been impacted heavily by this horrible disease. As a photographer giving back to others affected by cancer, I have been given a feeling of hope and healing.
Thank you so much, Flashes of Hope, for an awesome experience.

My wife Lauren and I, along with our first daughter, Lucy welcomed Ella McIntyre Carroll into the family just three weeks ago. We've been really busy to say the least. Things are going well though and everyone is healthy. It's awesome to have such a wonderful family. Everyone has told me that the second child gets so little attention when it comes to photos. Ella probably had 150 pictures taken in her first hour (I'll spare you). She's gorgeous. Two daughters! Life is good.

Howdy folks! Mike made the mistake of allowing me (Rosemary) a chance to write for the blog. Probably not a mistake that he'll repeat again. As Mike's producer, I am fortunate enough to remain happily off camera most of the time. But when my roller derby team needed some photos for collateral and web, who else would I turn to? Mike has now done two photo sessions with the girls and hopefully there will be more sessions as the team continues to grow. Most photographers (and men in general) wouldn't know what to do in the presence of 30 tough roller derby women. Mike can hold his own. Believe me. He's seen us on the track and knows to watch his back.

Just the other day a client/friend asked me a tough question. Who do you admire? In the world of photography, who do you really like? The only reason this is so tough is because there are several. One stands out though, Rodney Smith. http://www.rodneysmith.com/
Rodney spoke at a local APA meeting in my studio last year. I was reminded of his visit by the "Who do you admire question". Rodney's work is easy to admire. His production skill and his vision is without a doubt unique.
So, Rodney, consider yourself admired.

When I said, “Hang out in the Green Room,” I think Duck took it a little too far. Actually, this is one of the famous brothers from Brother’s Heating and Air waiting patiently for his turn in front of the camera. The Brothers are going GREEN. The photography from this shoot is now part of an ongoing outdoor campaign posted all around Charlotte metro.

It turned out to be only a third of the employees. Still, what an awesome project. Each employee was supposed to show 4 different emotions: Elation, Angst, Desire, and Pride. Two days of shooting for 8 hours a day at Muzak headquarters and we did it. Then last week we completed three days of shooting folks at GlobalShop in
