About Us

Jimmy & Shirley

Life is about memories. I've been capturing memories that bring a lifetime of joy and pleasure since 1979.

Shirley and I started creating our own memories together just a few short years ago and were married in 2004. Together, we have 3 children and 3 grandchildren. You may have noticed some images of our family in our portrait galleries. Family is what makes life's memories so wonderful for us.

We would be honored to be a part of your family memories.

The Professional Photographers of America honored me in 2003 with the distinction of Photographic Craftsman and then in 2005 as a Certified Professional Photographer. These two achievements mean a lot to me. The Craftsman award is given for service to others in the photographic field through teaching and service to PPA. Becoming Certified by PPA means that I have passed a thorough written examination and have had my work judged by nationally-recognized photographers throughout the country. They deemed my work to be worthy to hang on their own walls. Not a bad compliment coming from my peers whose work I admire.

I am on the Board of Directors of the Professional Photographers of South Carolina, currently serving as Secretary. I hold the Fellow of Photography degree and have won several First Place Awards in our annual print competition as well as Best of Show and was selected as one of the Top Ten Photographers in South Carolina at our 2006 and 2007 conventions.

What does this mean to you? I hope it will give you some ideas on having me create a family portrait for your home or having me photograph your wedding. I would love to talk with you personally. Please call me at (803) 775-7484. I look forward to becoming your personal family photographer.
