I have not upgraded Photoshop since I bought CS 5.5. The update to 6 was just too expensive for the level of improvement that it brought to the table. I never upgraded to Creative Cloud, because I dislike the concept of paying a monthly fee for photo editing software.
Affinity Photo offers 90% of what Photoshop does for a very affordable price. I'm really excited about the competition that this is going to bring to the market.
The biggest news is that I accepted a staff photographer position. I have been really busy since and have not had much time to dedicate to social media.
I will soon get back to posting on G+.
Not to mention I have a week long gig coming up in early May. Plus a few more test shoots. Things are really hopping around here.
This week we got a lot of sleet, rain, and snow just outside of Nashville, TN. This week I had the rare opportunity to do some personal photography. It is always really refreshing to get outside with my camera.
Taking a few photos on a snow day has really inspired me to want to do more personal projects. I have a laundry list of projects that I want to conquer in the coming months.

My interest in photography began when my mother gave me a camera at the age of four. Since that time, I have had a fascination with photography and light. I have owned and used a large variety of cameras including 35mm, medium format, and large format cameras in addition to the digital cameras I use.
What began as a hobby grew into a passion and a profession following my graduation from Belmont University. I currently work as a commercial photographer based in Nashville, Tennessee and am available for travel.
I started my career as a photo assistant. My client list as an assistant includes David Bean, Kris D’Amico, Dean Dixon, Russ Harrington, and Michael Gomez. My client list also includes photographers from New York, and LA including Ryan Benyi, Mark Seliger, Andrew Southam, and Matthew Welch.
As a photographer my clients include ABC, The Bazel Group, Brooks Brothers, Danker and Danker PR, Day Wind Music, Fletcher Rowley consulting group, GS&F, MMA, The Tennessean and Vanderbilt University.
I currently work as a staff product photographer.
