Welcome to my little piece of the...
Make yourself at home.
My name is Craig.
I'm located in Warner Robins, Georgia.
I have a full time job, but like most people it just doesn't get me where or what I want most of the time.
I would love to work with creative and industrious individuals and organizations to create top-quality photography.
I had a dream
After working for other people in creative and industry related jobs, I decided I'd had enough of being the workhorse paid in peanuts.
To give an idea of who I am, I provide you this curriculum vitae.
As a young lad, I graduated from the Art Institute of Atlanta specializing in video production and audio engineering. I dreamt of being a film editor in Hollywood, a lofty dream. After all, Mom and Dad said I could do anything I put my mind to. I started working for a small production company where I learned many skills including video production, video editing and video engineering. I worked with that small family-like outfit for about a decade, but I found a more lucrative opportunity with a company that produced staged productions for corporate clients. You know the kind; hotel ballrooms, stages, pipe and drape, truss hanging from everywhere with a literal ton of lights hanging from it, sound, and video projection. I worked in the video discipline, but picked up various lighting and sound techniques. I also did some logistics, including driving the equipment truck across the country. Then this thing happened where some lunatics flew some planes into the World Trade Center in New York City. Everything changed. Most notably for me, business dried up and people were let go, including yours truly. At which point I went back to school to turn my A.A. into a B.S in communications and information technology. I got a job at the number-one-rated local television station. It was never a very good deal for me. But it was the height of the Great Recession. I was lucky to have any job. I bided my time by getting another B.S. This one in Business with a concentration in production and operations management. I hoped that my loyalty, excellent performance, and good education would help me move up in the Fortune 500 corporation that owned the station. Alas, I was pigeonholed by management. I decided to attempt something a bit crazy. I left that dead-end job behind, and started a photography company. Something I had been dreaming about and preparing for a long while. But it was folly. The demand for photography and the supply of photographers makes it difficult to give away services in this area. I had begun to to do real estate photography. I had a few clients, but they either got out of real estate or moved to greener pastures. I had to take jobs unrelated to photography to feed myself. I have such a job now. But I still dream of making great photography.
