Southeast Bumble Bee Survey

In August 2023, I was hired by The Hellbender Press, an online journal focusing on environmental issues around southern Appalachia, to photograph a group of biologists and volunteers conducting a bumble bee survey for the Southeast Bumble Bee Atlas at wildflower patches at the Foothills Land Conservancy in Maryville, TN. The friendly and furry bees were captured, placed on ice to chill out, and then observed and recorded before flying away unharmed.

South Sudanese Student Graduates

In May 2023, I was hired by a local businessman to photograph his adopted daughter's graduation from Maryville College. Betty Asha escaped a horrific life in South Sudan several years ago and has fought to help rescue over 2,000 people from war-torn South Sudan. Miss Asha has faced many challenges in making it to the milestone of graduation and it was an honor to document the day for her and her adoptive family and friends.

Functional Pathways

In April 2023, I was hired by Functional Pathways multiple times to photograph a series of meetings at their Knoxville headquarters, take some new headshots and portraits of their executives, and to photograph some of the work they do at area assisted living facilities providing physical rehabilitation services for residents.
