Check out the Camera Strap I have been working on.

I am a wedding photographer in greenville, sc. Although I do many other kinds of photography, weddings seem to put the body through more physically than most of the other kinds of work I do (desert work can be rough too). I am always trying to consider what the weakest links are in my game and how to improve. A camera strap around the neck can be painful after hours of hanging there. Also trying to consider camera safety, and preventing it from getting banged up or dropped while working (especially when carrying multiple cameras). And let’s not forget having a strap that looks good with a suit AND is functional (big factor)….. Refining the experience and the process just makes sense.

So if you didn’t know, I also work with leather (a hobby side thing). coxleather.com.

This camera strap takes the pressure off of the neck and distributes the weight more evenly. I have been working on the idea for a few months, but only started making this a couple weeks ago. I wore it to a wedding a couple Saturdays ago (outside a coat), and made some adjustments, then again last Saturday (inside a coat). This current prototype seems to do the best job in comfort and weight distribution, as well as keeping it strong, adjustable and light. I made it in black. Wedding photography makes for a long day and carrying around equipment can keep you from being fresh. Also, if equipment isn’t easily accessible, it is likely it won’t be where you want it when that random awesome moment happens.  I found that in the bag means missed moments (wrong gear in hand). I carry a few cameras at a time with different options so I can be ready for the “come what may” scenario. From shoes to gear, it all makes the difference. I try hard to stay fit, since anything less than being in good health makes the  final product suffer (it is very hard work if you take it seriously). These are camera-phone photographs so excuse the quality. Maybe when I am finished tweaking the design I will make some better ones. This one I have been wearing for a couple days straight, so far so good. I especially like it tighter on the shoulders. It offers more stability like a tripod.

Senior photography in greenville sc. I love when I get the chance to photograph people in their own element. Senior portraits are a special time in life. The excitement of finishing high school. And, looking to the future. Our senior portrait session can be as elaborate or focused as you like. From hair make up and multiple attire changes on location, to in the studio cap and gown because what happened with the school photographer is just not what you were looking for. We can also assist in selecting wardrobe if you like. This summer would be a great time to be planning for senior portraits.

This session was at the horse farm, and riding is one of her passions.

We do photography sessions for greenville, sc and the surrounding areas, as well as outsideout demographic when possible. We make several beach trips per year (because of work we have booked), and you can get on the waiting list for that if you are interested. Senior photography is what you make of it, and of course who you choose to work with. Most of our senior photography sessions are much like modeling sessions. Check out our teens and senior sessions section on this website.
