Meet Virginia Uldrick - The Governor's School

Part of a series I shot highlighting artistically influential folks of Greenville, SC.... Virginia Uldrick founded the Governor's School of South Carolina, a boarding school for high school Jr's and Sr's specializing in the arts... music, dancing, theatre... an amazing place. I went to a boarding school long ago, so this was was especially cool to me. I believe they might even have a photography course!

UPDATE: I'd forgoten that I'd made a time-lapse of this shoot... I just found it and put it together... kinda fun. Thanks to Paul Mehaffey for his help setting up!

Meet Nancy Whitworth...

Meet Nancy Whitworth. As the Economic Developer of the great city of Greenville, South Carolina, Nancy is among the few who can take credit for envisioning and propelling forward the phenomenal redevelopment of her city. Thirty years ago, when Nancy began her employ, Greenville was a dump, plain and simple. Many years and many awards later, Greenville has morphed into a small city that is a gem in the southeast. Come and see for yourself... I'll show you around... it's a nice place...

...just don't judge it by the cityscape I shot that they printed in the magazine... lesson learned: don't submit what you don't want published!

Here is a better one...

Meet Gene Berger... Owner, Horizon Records

Meet Gene Berger... Gene's been around Greenville, South Carolina for a while now. He owns the local music store, Horizon Records, and is Greenville's phenom music promoter. Through the years he's brought such names as Lyle Lovett, Emmylou Harris, Alison Krause, Buddy Guy, and the Indigo Girls to our sleepy little town.

The great folks at G: The Magazine of Greenville hired me to shot a series of portraits to salute Greenville's community of creatives. Gene is the first... I'll post others in the coming days.

Just so happens I shot a little time-lapse of this location portrait shoot.... something that I plan to make a habit. The music is from Mahler's 4th Symphony... the very album that Gene is holding in his arms.

Can You Hear It?

Sounds like BS to me... I can hear it just fine, and I'm not a teenager anymore... unfortunately.
