I love stories. That’s why I studied newspaper and magazine journalism in college. Everybody has a story, and as a writer, I always enjoyed sharing them.

But even back then, long before I became a professional photographer, I often kept a camera handy, because I wanted to record what was happening through the lens as well. While I still do some freelance writing, I focus most of my efforts on photography these days. It is, of course, more economical than writing, a picture being worth … well, you know.

I’m not the first in my family to practice visual storytelling. A cousin on my father’s side of the family, Hughes Michael, served as an artist and public information officer for the U.S. Marines in World War II. In battles, he drew charcoal sketches while crouched in fox holes to capture the agony of war and the human experience. Those sketches, and the paintings he completed afterward, informed the national war effort and promoted sales of U.S. war bonds.

My middle name, Hughes, is a salute to him, and I’ve always liked the novelty of my initials. As a photographer, I enjoy capturing the “Aha!” moments of families, businesses and other aspects of the local community. Both on the ground and in the air  I am an FAA Part 107-certified drone pilot – I would love to help tell your extraordinary, one-of-a-kind story.
