I decided to launch Studio 63 in 2017 with a “Sweetheart Special.” I put together this ad rather quickly in PS. My first Valentines Day couple were recently engaged. Thank you Tim and Leah! The mylar balloons kept moving around but we made it work. Anyone who has worked in photography knows this is a fantastic deal. My goal is to provide professional photography services in this (Pee Dee region) area at rates that working folks can afford.
I now have the studio operational. The photos below are of Tim and Leah and some images of the first studio shoot.
I utilized the Mark II body, nifty fifty, and the 18-135mm. I tried shooting around 65-75mm focal length with the 18-135 so that I would be closer to the optimal 85mm for portrait work since I have an APS-C sensor size on the Mark II. Most of my portrait work to this point had been outdoors or on-location with fill flash. Obviously shooting in the studio will present its own challenges.
For the year 2016 I saw a lot of challenges, overcame more obstacles, relocated to the east coast, and even weathered through hurricane Matthew! After much contemplation, I have finally decided to quit running from what always seemed my true destiny and become the professional photographer. Yes indeed. I’m confident that Studio 63 will bring a breath of fresh air to SC and provide a new, affordable option for those seeking professional photography and video services here in the Pee Dee region.

I will be posting the home site for Studio 63 in early 2017 when we officially launch! Thanks for your support!
Late October, 2016 found me responding to a father/daughter on-location shoot. Gracie and Robbie were lot’s of fun and we even had a little time to capture some images of them in the great outdoors on their favorite four wheeler. Images captured at their home at Coward, SC. Thanks to Robbie and Gracie for allowing me to post some images of their on-location portrait session.
The early morning sun casts long shadows on the President’s lawn at UCM. Temperatures hover near zero degrees on February 5, 2014, at Warrensburg, Missouri.
The rising sun transfers a greenish hue from the cupola atop the James Kirkpatrick Library down to the cold fresh snow below.

Today I took a walk in a state park (it wasn’t closed, ha ha) and I spotted this little creature, some birds and bees doing what they do. I think it’s some type of hummingbird. I wish I would have had a macro lens. I used a 70-200mm lens and my shutter speed was set at 500. This little guy was really moving around!
