L’Amour Du Vin ’14 {Knoxville Museum of Art, Knoxville, TN}

The L’Amour Du Vin event has quickly become one of my favorite events to photograph annually (click here for last year’s event). Each year, the Knoxville Museum of Art hosts the event. Here’s the description from the KMA site: “The finest food and wine event in Tennessee, the wine auction and dinner partners with Relais and Chateaux property Blackberry Farm to create a spectacular evening to remember. In its eleventh year L’Amour du Vin has become one of Knoxville’s most prestigious events; all funds raised benefit the KMA.” Dinner was be prepared by Guest Chef Patrick O’Connell, The Inn at Little Washington joined by the chefs and sommelier of Blackberry Farm. Each course was be paired with wines from Featured Wineries Kosta Browne WineryRealm Cellars and CIRQ. Also joining the event is Featured Artist Richard Jolley whose work Daphne has served as the 2014 signature image. It was a beautiful evening & I was again honored to share in the occasion.

WPPI ’14 // MGM Grand, Las Vegas, NV

The first week of March I had the privilege to attend one of the world’s largest photography conventions, WPPI ’14, Wedding & Portrait Photographers International, at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, NV. Customarily I have attended similar conferences in the past as simply an attendee yet this year I was honored to travel with PhotoBarn Pro. Last May I began consulting for PhotoBarn Pro & as the year has progressed my relationship has continued to strengthen. I am now spending several hours a week serving as a Creative Director, from photographing all of the Lifestyle Product images to Design & Branding Strategy. It’s been a wonderful partnership. Since PhotoBarn Pro was exhibiting at WPPI ’14, I had the privilege, along with my wife, Joy, & our Biz Director, Meg, to join PhotoBarn owners, Todd & Lindsay McCormick, at the conference. We had an absolute blast leading up to the conference, designing & laying out the booth. Yet the real fun began when we arrived in Vegas & met with scores of industry friends. A huge thanks to our friend Matthew Pulver for driving all the way from Knoxville to Las Vegas to setup the booth! As a recap, I thought it would be fun to show you our booth which featured much of my work, Finch Photo, as well as Julie Paisley Photography, Lindsay Jane Studios, Kallima Photography & Alec Vanderboom Photographic Services.  Enjoy!

2014 AAF-Knoxville Addys

Saturday night, Finch Photo was honored to receive some pretty rad awards for our commercial photography work at the 2014 AAF Knoxville Addys. Overall, we submitted three projects & took home 2 Gold Addys & 1 Silver Addy. For those who are curious, here is a bit more info about the Addys: “The Knoxville ADDY® Awards is the first tier of the three-tiered National ADDY® Awards, the advertising industry’s largest recognition of creative excellence. Founded in 1959, the American Advertising Federation of Knoxville is a professional organization that promotes excellence and awareness of advertising in the greater Knoxville area. It is an official chapter of the American Advertising Federation (AAF), which is headquartered in Washington DC and acts as the “Unifying Voice for Advertising.” The AAF is the oldest national advertising trade association, representing 40,000 professionals through a national network of 200 local chapters. For more information, visit aafknoxville.com”

We won a Gold Addy for our Culinary Photography for Lil Vinnie’s Italian Restaurant in Old City, Knoxville (click here to see our shoot). I had such a blast photographing their menu that a few days later I took Joy to Lil Vinnie’s for Valentine’s Day… the food is simply wonderful!

We began our partnership with PhotoBarn in 2013 & have not looked back. PhotoBarn asked me to become their Director of Photography & to photograph their products as they launched their rebrand. They’ve been a fantastic client & I can’t wait to see what we do together in the future. ADDYs_PhotoBarn_FinchPhoto_Blog_WEB
