Slow Exposures Fine Art Photography Exhibit

 A photograph I took two years ago when visiting Zebulon and Concord, Georgia to view the Slow Exposures exhibits. It was selected to be a part of this year’s show.

Near the end of September this year, I traveled south the Zebulon, Ga to celebrate the Sweet Sixteenth birthday of Slow Exposures. The birthday celebrated the fact that for 16 years fine art photographers and lovers from across the US have gathered in for this annual juried exhibition.

The photographs chosen for the exhibit celebrate the rural American South.

I love the concept of celebrating photos of thee rural south in the rural South.

The selected images are displayed in late nineteenth-century buildings on the National Register of Historic Places.

The Slow Exposures website perfectly describes what this “sense of place” generates. “It makes for an experience filled with shared, serendipitous moments where the energy is infectious and the conversations, thought-provoking.”

It certainly does.

I'm an Atlanta wedding photographer who takes soulful, quirky and honest photos ...

I'm also an adventurous traveler and all-round nerd. I love to hike with my beagle/cattle dog Roux and best friend/spouse.

I was born in Atlanta, moved around a lot--30 cities and 5 states--and then came back.

After graduating from the Art Institute of Atlanta, I took a job at asmall newspaper in south Georgia, where I photographedhospital teas, pecan farmers, and beauty queens.

I photographed a biker funeral, death penalty protests andTed Bundy while interning with the Associated Press.

While a photographer for two dailies in Florida, I photographed Ronald Reagan, a train derailment and the dedication of a screened-in porch.

An unexpected life turn took me to Vermont where I fell in love with Bernie Sanders and on to Indiana, where I edited photos for a major daily, and nerded out getting a master’s and PhD.

After teaching photojournalism at colleges and universities in Florida, Indiana and Mississippi, I returned to Atlanta to earn myfifth degree--a Master's of Divinity.

My passion for storytelling with my camera and my interest in religious diversity led my to the field of wedding photojournalism.

I have documented weddings large and small, Unitarian and Pagan, indoors and out, Christian and Muslim, in backyards and in churches. The most exotic wedding I have photographed took place in Mexico and was officiated by aMayan shaman.

When I'm not photographing weddings, portraits or corporate events, I work on personal photo projects, visit friends in amemory-care home, and volunteer at a recovery center.
