Welcome to Joe Hollingsworth’s 38th Annual Tailgate Party . . . we had a blast and enjoyed the company of around 400 people on the South lawn of the World’s Fair Park in Knoxville, TN. This was my 5th year in a row of covering this event for Joe and his friends. I now consider them my friends too and what an honor it is to be working with such fine and friendly people. I hop you enjoy these photos.
Here are a sample of the headshots I was hired to take for the Leadership Knoxville class of 2016. I really like the strong and almost dramatic effect the black background gives each person. I set up this shoot using three lights and a seven foot pop-out background inside the Knoxville Sunsphere. I also offer a new light grey background for a little more subtle feeling . . . and I always can do an environmental portrait that is best suited for your profession or personality ” on location.” I do have the option for a portrait made at my studio, however 95% of my clients are limited for time and I make your professional photography session my utmost priority for you I am a subservient and professional business owner ready to serve. Way to go class of 2016 Leadership Knoxville!!!
These are photos I shot for the Knoxville News Sentinel on Saturday, August 22, 2015. The gentleman teaching the course was super informative and has information that will be lost very soon as generations of people never learn the basics of food preparation. I myself feel very confident with the basics of cooking that my Granny Gryder passed on to me. However, I am always learning more. Granny always said, that the old ways of doing things will all come back in my lifetime. Yep, Granny was right about pretty much everything. So here are some photos I shot at the James White Fort in Knoxville, Tennessee. Hope you enjoy them and feel free to email me if you want me tell you how to make biscuits like my grandmother taught me. It’s worth learning:)
Senior Portraits are a turning point from high school to the next step in life . . . I try and have a great time with the young person so that they can relax and have their best possible smiles show through 😉
This project was a real pleasure to work on with Oliver Smith . . . I enjoy working with people who are at the top of their field and he certainly is. These are some of the best of the best developments that Oliver Smith Realty & Auction have done in the past few years for Knoxville, TN. I like to think of myself as the person who comes in at the very last part to showcase all of the hard work . . . I am humbled to be part of this! I hope you enjoy these photos . . .
I have had the pleasure to be the official photographer for this event for three years in a row now . . . This year we had an all star athlete, Washington Delegate, and the Governor of TN there . . . I hope you Enjoy!!!
This was the best Pinnacle Awards Event the Knoxville Chamber has put on in the nine years I have been covering them. Being the featured event photographer is an honor I do not take lightly and I am looking forward to next year’s event already! I Hope you enjoy a peek into this incredible event.
