First of all I LOVE what I do.
What could be better than taking pictures for a living, meeting new people, and documenting their most cherished memories? Outside looking in that’s a huge responsibility, but I look forward to to every waking day. Highlighting my brief but busy past includes being an Art Director for Source Interlink Media’s national magazines for over 4 years, being featured in PDN, Advanced Photoshop and multiple other publications and blogs. After nearly 5 years working in Los Angeles, and a very very tough decision, my heart spoke to me and realized my true home is back in the South. There’s just something about sweet tea and seasonal weather that soothes my soul.
I love to get to know the unique individuals that I’m shooting. Knowing how to use all the buttons on a camera is one thing, but connecting with the person and capturing their true personality is what it’s really all about. Very rarely will you hear me say “3, 2, 1, cheeeeeeese!” I find sometimes the best moments are the ones when you’re least expecting it. Overall the idea behind Davis Visuals is to bring my vision to you.
