Solar Eclipse 2017 Photos in North Carolina

Solar Eclipse 2017 Pho­tos from Durham NC We pho­tographed the full eclipse in August 2017, and cre­at­ed the time-lapse of the whole event. It was extra nifty, as many of our neigh­bors came over while we had our cam­era rig and big lens out— we had a live feed from the…

Why I Love the Summit Church

When I asked asked Dan­ny Franks of the Sum­mit Church about our doing some­thing nice for the staff, this is what he said: (excerpt of the reply I got from Dan­ny Franks of the Sum­mit Church. I asked if it was OK to drop off a thank you to all the behind the scenes folks…

Late Fall at Duke Gardens

Late Fall at Duke Gar­dens We took a late fall walk around the Duke Gar­dens and I’m always struck by some­thing new. Each trip has dif­fer­ent light, dif­fer­ent things bloom­ing, we take a dif­fer­ent path. And the Gar­dens staff keeps adding, chang­ing and, well… grow­ing the…

Durham Skyline from DPAC

View of Durham from DPAC (with bonus reflec­tions): I love the view look­ing toward down­town Durham from DPAC, and shoot­ing through DPAC’s win­dows can do a num­ber of cool addi­tions that I’m always play­ing with. You can step back and have the win­dow­pane bars split up the…

DPAC Hamilton Timelapse

DPAC want­ed some­thing extra-cool to show off the excite­ment of announc­ing the Hamil­ton tour. So we planned with them and over a peri­od of two days pho­tographed a time-lapse of the ban­ner going up. Every 20 sec­onds dur­ing the work a pho­to was snapped from the near­by…

Just Being a Dad:

Just Being a Dad: Couldn’t help but stop and chat with these dads at Wal­nut Street Park. Just their casu­al guy way of hang­ing out chat­ting with each oth­er, and all the while giv­ing a lit­tle push to the kids was just clas­sic. And of course the kids were hav­ing a blast…

Stark Photos:

Stark Pho­tos: Indulge me for one post of being art­sy. I real­ly liked the reflec­tions off of the Durham Cen­ter Tow­er hit­ting this wall. So, here are two views from slight­ly dif­fer­ent times of day (one B/W, one in the orig­i­nal pale blue col­or). Pho­tos by Huth­Pho­to…

Self-Portrait:

Self-Por­trait: These are the sorts of things that define Durham for me. You’re in an alley rush­ing some­where and bump into some­thing just full of mean­ing— then have to stop and stare. And for me, to doc­u­ment it. For­tu­nate­ly, after snap­ping this pho­to, I was able to…

Media

Media: I want­ed to say some­thing smarmy here about ‘old media’, just because of the pho­to, but I can’t. Just tak­ing a cheap crack at paper pub­li­ca­tions, is too easy and real­ly I LOVE what I get from things like Durham Mag­a­zine (and I read the News & Observ­er,…

The View From the Durham Chamber:

The View From the Durham Cham­ber: One thing I love about hav­ing joined the Durham Cham­ber is the view from the 14th floor of the Durham Cen­tre Tow­er dur­ing meet­ings. It’s frankly hard not to gawk at the view, instead of improv­ing my busi­ness skills by pay­ing atten­tion…

Busted:

Bust­ed: Nope, they weren’t real­ly doing any­thing wrong, but I just love the look of being caught. As we’re cruis­ing around nifty Durham, we do bump into a fair num­ber of pho­tog­ra­phers, snap­shot tak­ers, and real pho­to…

Editing a Comedy Show with Tim Hawkins

It’s dif­fi­cult to pho­to­graph many types of shows… stand-up com­e­dy and fun­ny plays can actu­al­ly be on the list of those prob­lem shows to shoot.     We cov­er some very fun­ny talks and shows that don’t real­ly look fun­ny. Often what’s going on is that the audi­ence is…

Red #1

Red #1 Found these on our way to see the pho­to show at Through This Lens, I’m amazed how many spots in Durham have col­or, his­to­ry, details that just make won­der­ful pho­tos. All dif­fer­ent looks, all in…

Nifty But­tons— Want One? Have you got­ten your Nifty­Durham but­ton yet? We always have them on us (look for the brown pho­to man-purse satchel & black Fuji cam­era… and lis­ten for the laugh­ter). Just ask… maybe you’ll even get one of…

Durham County Sheriff Recruit Training

The Durham Coun­ty Sher­iff Depart­ment brought us in to show the excite­ment of the process, the ener­gy (& the sweat) their recruits go through to qual­i­fy as deputies. I had an amaz­ing time grab­bing these shots, and real­ly want­ed to show the cama­raderie, and feel of…
