One of my favorite videos that I made during my videography internship at Nashville Zoo!

Advertising photo shoot for Lotus Energy Drink. This shot was done by dropping the product into a large fish tank filled with water and having another person pour additional water on top of the can as it was dropped and floated back to the top. I used a very high shutter speed to catch the can surrounded by the individual bubbles.

Ads I created for Cheekwood Botanical Garden after visiting last week. Everyone should visit this beautiful place several times a year because there is always something new to discover here.

These are some of my favorite softball and baseball photos. Highschool sports are played with such intense emotion making for great shots.

These are my images from Divas in the Desert in Tucson, Arizona for the American Cancer Society Gala. Pia Toscano, Jordin Sparks, and Jennifer Hudson were the performers for the evening.

These are some of my favorite landscapes from my trip to Sedona, Arizona in May. The red rock formations there are even more breath-taking in person.

My favorite shots from last week of two year old Madilyn. It was so much fun to work with her and her parents at Moss Wright Park.

As the fourth of July approaches I wanted to post a link from one of my all time favorite websites about photography-petapixel.com. In case you have ever wanted to improve your fireworks pictures, here are some helpful tips. I tried these last year and was happy with the results but would love to try it again to see what else is possible. My favorite trick was #4 Set and Forget to capture continuous explosions. Also, don’t forget to look behind you to see the reactions from the families enjoying the show. Sometimes those are the best images. Have a fun and safe holiday!

Concert-goers could not ask for a better lineup during this night full of rock at Nashville’s historic War Memorial Auditorium. The groups really connected with their audience and had them on their feet dancing in front of the stage to the sweet sounds of their guitars. Alejandro Escovedo, Los Lonely Boys, and Los Lobos even ended up coming together to play some of their classic hits. 

Concerts are one of my favorite things to photograph because of the dramatic and colorful lighting. When shooting concerts, look for emotion from the performer whether that be them interacting with the crowd or their facial expressions as they sing or play their instrument. Most venues do not allow flash so the best alternative is using a fast lens (f 2.8 or lower aperture) with high ISOs.

Some of my favorite images from the nightly concerts at LP Field for CMA Fest 2013. Taylor Swift and Blake Shelton really know how to put on a great show for the fans. One of my favorite things about photographing live events is the amazing concert lighting present.

Fans enjoying their favorite country artists at the Riverfront stage at Nashville Tennessee’s CMA Fest. It was so much fun to be one of four students chosen by the Country Music Association to photograph the CMA Fest this year!
