10th Annual Asheboro Fall Roundup Horse Parade

Last Sunday, I stumbled upon a whole mess of horses and their owners in downtown Asheboro!

RCC Photo Student for Mayor

For one of my self-promos, I decided to photograph a political campaign-style portrait. First year student, Lewis Perkins agreed to pose for me (as the candidate) and we shot outside the Asheboro City Hall. I underexposed the background to make him stand out and shot from a low angle to give him a sense of power.

I ended up liking the two shots below- envisioning it as a mock double page ad for a designer eyewear company. Thanks to Caroline for modeling while also giving lighting assistance on the set!

Seven Star Cycles – Multimedia Piece

Our final assignment for Small Format class this summer was a multimedia piece in which we had to photograph and record a subject, then join the recorded sounds and images together into a multimedia presentation. I did my piece on the newly opened Seven Star Cycles in  Durham. Thanks to owner, Adrian Fletcher for being so patient and helpful and for bringing this great small business to the Bull City!

Future Sounds

I took my awesome Harmon/Kardon USB speaker system into the studio and shot it using the black line glass lighting technique. These are the speakers that Tron rocks out with…
