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!
























The January-February winter edition of Salt Magazine has finally hit the stands and if you haven’t had a chance to pick one up, then put it on your list of things to do. It is a great issue and one you won’t want to miss. If you can’t get one in print, then be sure to go to the web site for Salt Magazine and read it online. You won’t be disappointed.

I once again got to team up with the ever talented Ashley Wahl, and photograph the Weaver farm in Rocky Point. The farm is called Lucky Dog Farm and consists of 10 acres, a quaint bark sided cottage, guest house, 3 horses, 2 burros and a trio of Norwich terriers. It is just a bucolic place that evolved when Jo Weaver rescued some abused horses that were confiscated from a farm in Dunn, NC. The Weavers had moved out to their refuge in the country and when the plight of the horses became clear, they built a stable and all of a sudden, they were horse people. Ashley tells the whole story in the article, and a wonderful story it is, so don’t pass up a chance to read it.  Meanwhile,  I have included some photos from the shoot and you can get an idea of the lifestyle of Lucky Dog Farm and meet Dash, Sam, Piper and the burros, Thomas and Luke.



































I was recently commissioned by Hardee, Hunt and Williams to photograph an incredible estate home at 6226 Richard Bradley Dr., which is being marketed by their company. This craftsman style home is situated in its own fenced, park like setting and is close to Wrightsville Beach. It has remarkable wood work throughout and will be a coveted property for that discerning buyer. It was the second time I got to work with Barb Wall who is a talented designer and stager. Barb is owner of  J-O-A-T and has a great eye for color and detail. She staged this home and as always, was a pleasure to work along side and to have her input. This beautiful home is representative of the quality of homes that are marketed by Hardee, Hunt and Williams.

Below are a few of the photos from the days shoot:

As a NC Real Estate and Interiors photographer I sometimes get the opportunity to spend time in some magnificent homes. I had the opportunity to do just that when I photographed “Tuscany”,the home of artist J. Chris Wilson and his wife Kathy for the August issue of Salt Magazine. The home is a fine  6000 sf Antebellum structure built in 1854, designed by James F. Post and restored by Chris and Kathy.

Now, I’m not going to go into the details of the home. You can read the wonderful article by Salt Magazines talented Senior Editor, Ashley Wahl, by picking up a copy at newsstands throughout Wilmington. If you can’t get to one of the locations, then you can read it online by clicking here.  I just want to share moments of the time I spent in “Tuscany”. This shoot was really special, because not only did I get to meet Chris and Kathy and record the Antebellum splendor that is their home, but Kathy, an amazing talent in the kitchen, treated this photographer to a wonderful lunch. It really was a memorable “Day in Tuscany”. Enjoy the images.


I’ve had a busy week working for Karen Schwartz, broker with Coldwell Banker Sea Coast Realty. This home is in the Waterford subdivision in Brunswick County, just over the Cape Fear River from downtown Wilmington. It is a well appointed home on a canal. You may contact Karen through her web site or follow @agentkaren on Twitter. You may see other photos on the tour link created for 1016 Ginger Lily Way. Here are a few photos from the shoot.
