return to chucktown

i wasn't gone very long, but it was great to be back anyway.  i was afforded the chance to get out of snow riddled baltimore for a week recently, and return to the sunny old stomping grounds in south cackalacky.  i spent the week of march 10 - 16 back in charleston for a shoot with coastal contacts.  i made sure there was some time in between work for some fun as well, not that work wasn't fun....

the vw thing.  my friends holly and forrest  were gracious enough to let us borrow it for a recent shoot on folly beach.  she's a bit difficult to drive, but once you figure out the clutch to gas ratio, it is a dream.  

quick shot of the models and their fashionable eye wear on the the thing.

fellow hammockers under folly pier on a 40 degree morning, they must have been freezing.

spent a few windy chilly nights out on the beach, working on my project - i was hoping to catch the tide up around the tree, but i never got out early enough.  although the sky made up for the  lack of reflection here.

this is the same tree - lit only by the moon

i spent saturday and sunday kayak camping out with friends at caw caw - i attempted to photograph a few trees via kayak, but after getting stuck repeatedly in the mud my frustration got the best of me so i headed back to the campfire to enjoy the beer and the night.

karls bar - empty yet again

we were threatened by rain on the paddle out of the swamp

it was looking a bit eery

and by eery, i mean awesome.  we did get wet that day, but the trip was worth it.

i packed my bags and headed north on monday, after a successful shoot and kayak trip, directly into a winter storm....
