Two brushes with greatness

 I was honored to have 2 of my tintypes (outtakes from an Out State shoot in 2009) used by designer Ned Irving to illustrate a book about Hiroshi Sueyoshi. (pottery photography by Adam Alphin) for his epic show at the Cameron Museum of Art.
Hiroshi, is one of the most interesting artist I have ever met and is a national treasure. He is collected in all the big time museums, worldwide. More at

My second brush with greatness , was a rainy day in the country with Phillip Gerard. Phillip is not only a great musician but the offical historian of the Civil War for Our State magazine. Throught out the 5 years of 150th anniversary events, Philip brought us a collection of fresh tales and newly researched stories that occurred in the Old North State published monthly in Our State. <>

Garden And Gun

     Now on News Stands, Garden And Gun April/May 2015. Look for My work on page 149. Copy
by Nic Brown. Fantastic cover by Andy Anderson.
     Visit historic Beaufort, it will get the hair on the back of your neck awake. That is,
if you like a chilly day in a graveyard.

        Another occurrence of note, was when I was staring for my truth about this place,
with my head under the dark cloth and I hear the whisper of a Leica.... As a confirmed surrealist street photog myself, I know that sound.  Ric Carter, is a fantastic Street photographer who keeps Raleigh and Gates County covered with his poetic photographs of "life today".
Please visit his blog for further details. Wonderful North Carolina imagery.

Perhaps my favorite plate of the day was this stereo view of this broken column. Stare, let your eyes cross and you will see an image appear in the middle that will be 3D. Go buy a Garden and Gun for more about "life today" in the south.

A Tintype Wedding in the Hills of North Carolina

A Wet Plate Collodion photography produces an image called a Tintype. Icy drizzel gave way to sun on this January afternoon. Jennifer and Jons timeless style was a great match for the tintype.
 If you find yourself planning a wedding, or a reunion, at a log cabin in the woods, we should talk.
