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.

This months issue of Salt magazine showcases the Dames Inn, which is described by writer Mark Holmberg as being gently haunted. When I photographed the house and got to spend time with the owner, Pat Peters, I immediately was taken with  her love of Halloween and everything associated with the day. In fact, she keeps the house decorated all the time and if you spend enough time in the home you get the feeling you are being watched by Dame Carpender. She was the original owner and died in the home in 2000. Pat and guests who have rented the home profess to strange goings on within its walls. I have to say the decor can give you a whimsical, but creepy feeling as you wander from room to room. This year on Friday, October 28th from 6-9pm and for a nominal $5 admission, you may tour the Dames Inn and see for yourself. In the mean time enjoy the photos from the photo shoot and pick up a copy of the October Salt and read the whole article written by the very talented Mark Holmberg.

The following images are from a photo shoot for a firm out of Charlotte, NC., Grand Estates Auction Co. They establish auctions for the sale of high end homes, both domestically and abroad. It seems that sellers of these estate type homes are gravitating to this type of marketing and Grand Estates Auction is very successful at creating the atmosphere and exposure needed to produce a sale. If you are a realtor or home owner they could be a beneficial asset to market a home of distinction.

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.
