I was recently contracted by MTS Services, a large audio visual installation company, to photograph a few of their installations in New Hanover and Brunswick County. Two were local government installations and the other was in the new Union Station building at CFCC.

The CFCC location turned out to be interesting. We were scheduled to shoot on the same floor where the ABC drama “Secrets and Lies”, starring Juliette Lewis and Ryan Phillippe, was taking place. They had essentially taken over the whole floor, so when we showed up the coordinators were a little taken aback, but in the end we were given the go ahead and a time constraint to complete our shoot. I’ve always been a fan of Juliette Lewis and her work, so this was a minor inconvenience for me, but we didn’t get to see the actress, just a bunch of  extras and crew. The first set back of the day. We completed our shoot and moved on without fanfare. Below are just a few of the images from the full day shoot.







I’m fortunate in my work as a NC Interiors, Real Estate and Architectural photographer, to spend time in some really cool homes. They come in all shapes and styles, mostly traditional, some contemporary, but occasionally I get to see something really different and unique. Such was the case when I photographed this home for the March issue of Salt Magazine. The home is in Carolina Beach and is owned by Todd and Tina Piper. Todd is the owner of Tidal Wave Construction, an avid surfer and the builder of the home. The Pipers share the home with their two boys, Noah and Fisher.The home was designed by architect Kevin Pfirman and is built with steel-reinforced concrete and mainly recycled material. It is a veritable fortress on the beach and highly efficient.

I could go on and on about the home, but there is a much better, detailed story offered by talented writer, Anne Barnhill in this months issue of Salt Magazine. Its on the racks now and if you haven’t already picked up your copy, you should. It offers the best insight into the real Wilmington and everything the area offers. Meanwhile, enjoy a brief tour of some of the highlights of the Piper home.
