Why I Love being the Secondary Photographer at Weddings

Written by Stan Foxworthy   I love being the secondary photographer at weddings! You might think that someone who has photographed as many weddings as I have over the past three decades would want to be the lead photographer, but you would be wrong. I love being able to capture all of the details and…

My Professional Photography Support Group

Written by Stan Foxworthy   A funny thing happened to me the other day. I had been at a SCORE business workshop (for us creative types, something I highly advise going to!), wanting to energize my business brain. The speaker mentioned how businesses should make it a point to use images unique to their own…

And Now for Something Completely Different…

Written by Stan Foxworthy   I’ve had the primal photographic urge to expose some black & white film lately. I do love all film formats, but the one that I have enjoyed most since the 1970’s is medium format. Back then it was split up between my trusty Mamiya 645 (later added the 1000s model!),…

How did I get here???

Even the best laid plans can go awry, and it seems that the universe takes great delight in putting many forks in the road. I am now living in Charleston, SC, arguably one of the top historical and beautiful cities in the United States. The mot recent plan was to one day live in Italy,…
