It's all I've ever done and all I've ever wanted to do. .
From a simple business portrait to corporate annual reports to marketing and advertising, let's talk to see if there is a way Dominion Images Photography can help with your photography needs.
I held my first 35mm camera when my neighbor Steve Raeford (he was a professional photographer) let me play in his studio. I was hooked. The lenses and lights, the smell of the darkroom and the magic of an image being created on a piece of paper. I knew what I wanted my life to be. I was 14.
After heading off to the University of Oklahoma to learn about being a real photographer, I landed my first full-time job at the NBC station in Roanoke, Virginia. I covered all the basics of local news- accidents, fires, City Hall and courts. It wasn't long before I was offered a job in Washington, D.C. at Potomac Television. And from there, I went to NBC News.
I was assigned to The Capitol covering both The House and Senate. The Supreme Court. Federal Court in DC. And The White House. Along the way, I have been blessed to have my work noticed and have received a few awards, including an Emmy.
But my passion has always been with still photography. Upon leaving TV, I began Dominion Images Photography. I have and continue to work for local, regional and Fortune 500 companies as a commercial photographer. My editorial work appears in various newspapers, national and international magazines and websites.
What does this mean to you? I have experience. And for me to be a professional this long means I keep current and innovative, staying up-to-date with the latest technology and the best of trends. Much in today's photography is trendy and in a matter of months, will looks as dated as your parent's high school yearbook. Stay away from trendy and be a trend-setter.
Here's the thing.... You can list a whole bunch of clients, but who's gonna know if it's accurate (or not). Someone can say they shoot for a Fortune 50 company, yet all they did was provided an old file photo the client used for a PowerPoint presentation. Not exactly accurate and it's misleading.
So, I don't list them.
