Volunteer with the Community

I have only a couple organizations I volunteer with anymore.  I use to volunteer left and right with my photography.  I learned two things-one, I could find a way to get burnt out quite easily; two-not everyone appreciates your time and efforts.  I don't say this to discourage anyone from volunteering, in fact, I encourage it!  Volunteering your time is the most rewarding thing I feel fortunate enough to do.  There are days, or weeks where it feels overwhelming when I have that "one extra thing" to do.  However, I have always walked away feeling better about myself when I give a little of my time to someone else.  Especially organizations which can make such a difference in other peoples lives.  One of those organizations is the Music City Youth Orchestra in Nashville, TN.  An incredibly talented group of high school students who will blow your socks off when you pay the modest ticket to attend their performance.  Check out their website for their next performance date and time:
I began my involvement with Music City Youth Orchestra over a year and a half ago.  I serve on their Advisory Board, and I take photos at their concert which I give to them for their use.  I put together a video of the video and photos I took the other night.  Hope you enjoy it!

We offer Photography Workshops and Photo Tours

As an avid photographer I have traveled all over this state and around the US finding those great places to take photos.
I have started a video series which shares with you some of those locations.  I hope you will enjoy this short video of a location I have visited many times; Radnor Lake State Natural Area, Nashville, TN.

Click here to watch a video on what you can find at Radnor Lake State Natural Area.

While I was active with the Nashville Photography club as their Hiking & Adventure Group Leader it was my duty to seek, find and take club members to great places to take photos.  Even though I am not as active with the photo clubs as I once was, I still get asked quite a bit "where can I go to take nature/landscape/street photos?"  Hopefully this video series I am developing will help curious photographers answer that question.
Want to know more?  Want to attend a photo tour or workshop?  Contact me at: and I will be glad to help you get signed up for our next event.


Until next time...keep shooting!

Live Performance Photography - Jake Shimabukuro

Recently, Jake Shimabukuro-ukulele extraordinaire-returned to Nashville, TN.  For those who do not know him, please check out his website or his clips on youtube. Or click on this link: Jake Shimabukuro at 3rd & Lindsley, Nashville, TN
Such an amazing and talented ukulele player, who is incredibly kind and humble. 

I was able to catch the show this November and brought my camera.  Here are a few shots from that night at 3rd & Lindsley in Nashville, TN.

Aloha - thanks for the inspiration Jake!
