This months photo shoot for Salt Magazine took place on the South End of Wrightsville Beach. The home is owned by the Andrews family and is designed by John Parker and built by Ralph Konrady. The home is designed around the views of the ocean and has much glass to support this design.The three levels of decks make the outdoors living areas as inviting as the indoors. Its minimal interior decor and white color palette adds to the spaciousness of the home. It was a pleasure to photograph this home and the following images are some culled from the shoot. To read more about this beautiful space, pick up an issue and be entertained by the story written by the talented Isabel Zermani, the Senior Editor.

In this months(November) issue of Salt Magazine, I got to photograph a sweet Arts and Craft bungalow owned by Dusty Ricks, who is also the owner of the Satellite Bar and Lounge  in Greenfield Park. Much  of the decor is designed or repurposed by Dusty and everything just fits. It is a comforting space. You should pick up a copy of Salt and read the article by the talented Isabel Zermani, as she takes you through a quick history of Sunset Park and a colorful story about Dusty and the wonderful dwelling he calls home. Below are some of the images from the days photo shoot. I hope you enjoy viewing them as much as I did creating them and if you are in the area, stop by the Satellite and enjoy a very cold adult beverage and give a shout out to Dusty.

I was recently contracted for a commercial photo shoot by a company known as Enviva. Enviva is the worlds largest producer of wood pellets, which is a clean energy alternative for fossil fuels. They have several production facilities throughout the Southeast and locally they have a plant in Sampson County and a deep water terminal at the Port of Wilmington. The majority of their product is exported to the UK and Europe where it replaces coal in power plants and reduces their customers carbon foot print. Its a fascinating business and for two days I got the cooks tour of the production plant and the storage facility at the Port of Wilmington. It was actually the first time I had to wear a hard hat during a photo shoot, but when you see some of the following images, you’ll understand why that was a requirement. Enjoy the tour!

I was recently commissioned to photograph the Cape Fear Community College Humanities and Fine Arts Center for Andrew Consulting Engineers. I was taken aback by the beauty of this building and hope that the city of Wilmington and its people realize how fortunate we are to have such a facility in our midst. They have already booked some wonderful performances and it’s just another feather in the cap of Wilmington, as a thriving community of the arts.

I had a great time photographing the home featured in this months Salt magazine. The home at 423 South Front Street is not only featured on this years 2016 Azalea Festival Historic Home Tour , but rumor has it the owners throw an annual Festival party that is a coveted invite! The home is a finely appointed 1914 brick Neo-classical with a back yard built for entertaining. If you haven’t yet picked up this months issue of Salt, then do so and read the great article by Ashley Wahl. Also get out this weekend and visit this home and the nine others featured on the Tour. To pique your interest I’ve included images below from the days photo shoot. Enjoy and have a great Azalea Festival week end.
