In Progress with Randy Hayes

Another video is coming soon! Here's a handful of favorite stills from my video interview (and studio visit) with artist Randy Hayes. Hayes' video will be the third in a series of short videos that highlight some of the locals who are working to revitalize my hometown of Holly Springs, MS.

Collierville Christmas Home Tour

Some of my favorite photos from this year's "Christmas in Collierville Home Tour", shot for The Collierville Herald.

Featured below are photos from The Stratton House and The Bonk Home, two of six featured locations on the tour.

In addition to the home tour, tourists were within walking distance of Christmas events at Collierville Square, which included pictures with Santa Claus (pictured below), horse-and-carriage rides, and holiday sales at local shops.

Join the Flickr Group

Soon after I relocated to Mississippi, I started looking for an online "hub" where small town photographers gathered to share their work. I found one or two groups on Flickr, but nothing that focused specifically on photojournalism. So, I decided to create one.

"Small Town Photojournalism" is a place to share the photos that do, and don't, make the "official" cut for newspaper publication. It's a space to be inspired by other small town photographers.

I'm proud to say that, even though I'm in and out a lot, this group continues to grow, and includes some some of my favorite Flickr photographers! These guys are worth a follow, and the Small Town Photojournalism group is open to join:

The Tracks of Generals Tour

On December 4th, the Holly Springs Depot presented its first annual tour, "The Tracks of Generals". The tour featured several Civil War reenactors in character, and showcased the sites of Van Dorn's Raid: the Holly Springs Depot, and downtown square.

I volunteered to photograph the event on behalf of the Depot. Here's a few of my favorite photos from the event.
