Best Options For Photo Sharing // Mornings with Fox 43, WBIR

What a great time this morning on Mornings with Fox 43, WBIR News Channel 10I hope you were able to tune-in to my segment “Best Options for Photo Sharing.” What prompted me to address this topic was a recent tragedy that affected some dear friends. Not only did they lose their home (& all their possessions) in a fire, but they lost a child. I have no words to comfort their loss but have been deeply affected by their response & the hope they’ve found in treasuring Christ in the midst of suffering. About 3 weeks prior to the incident I had the privilege of photographing their family & little did I know how those photos would help minister to the family. Not only did it further value the power of photography but also reminded me of the importance & convenience of having an online space to share photos with your friends & family. Check out the graphic for my recommendations of the ‘Best Options for Sharing Photos.’ (And yes, I do realize that I left off Facebook. Of which, I think is a wonderful solution for sharing photos but the lack of control & security prompted me to omit it from the list). Click the image below to view the segment clip:

Selling Your Home

And a few quotes from some of my realtor friends:

“Really professional photography has been the single most successful tool for me to showcase luxury properties to local and out of area buyers.” –Lucas Haun of Knoxville Fine Homes

“In order to present their home in the best possible light, I believe it’s important for sellers to understand the value of having their home professionally photographed before it hits the market.  Since most buyers begin their search online, a house may be skipped over for viewing based on bad photos or lack of photos online.  Good first impressions are key.” –Paula Scarbrough, Century 21

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!
