After the Deepwater Horizon oil spill in 2010 the inland waters for much of the brown shrimp season were closed. The State finally opened the inland waters the last few days of the season and I wanted to go out and witness shrimpers finally getting a chance to work. As I crossed the bridge at Robinson Canal, I saw shrimpers trawling along the canal. I quickly parked, walked to the center of the bridge and shot this beautiful sunset scene.
I am a Louisiana-based professional photographer shooting corporate, industrial and editorial assignments. I began my photography career in St. Charles, Mo. as a lost 18-year-old taking black and white pictures of driftwood along the Missouri River. I thought I should try earning a living shooting pictures so I went school, earned a degree and somehow landed a job in Baton Rouge. In Baton Rouge I worked as a photojournalist at the Advocate where I had a lot of fun taking pictures of cool people, beautiful places and sometimes tragic events. Nowadays I continue my photography career as a freelance photographer and while not on assignment I can be found paddling the bayous and waterways of Cajun Country or spending time exploring the beauty of Catholicism. Although, I have lived most of my life in Baton Rouge, La., I still have roots in the Midwest and I occasionally cheer for the wrong sports teams, but my Louisiana family seem to tolerate my lapse in judgment. Eventually, I hope to shoot less assignment work and get lost taking pictures of the waterways of South Louisiana.
