     HI, my name is Brian and I have lived in the Lexington / West Columbia area of South Carolina since the mid 1970's.  I attended Brookland-Cayce High School and graduated in 1984.  I graduated from the University of South Carolina in 1992.  I am married and have two wonderful children who are attending the same schools I did as a kid, pretty cool!


     Ever since I was a young child I have loved photography.  My grandmother gave me a camera, it was a Kodak 126, and I still have it to this day.  I loved taking pictures.  I had a knack for composing  great shots and I was constantly taking pictures.

      I was, and still am, the family photographer.  Yep, I am the one who shows up to all family events with the camera.  My family always moans and groans about constantly being photographed, but by the following day everyone tags themselves in my pictures on Facebook.


     I got the idea to start my own virtual tour/photography business around 2003.  My wife and I were house shopping and it was then that I came to realize just how important it was to have good pictures on the internet.

 
     I have been shooting tours since then. I have shot many virtual tours in the Columbia area and beyond. I have photographed vacation properties, hotels, retirement homes, libraries and hundreds of homes for sale.   I have shot in Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina and Tennessee. 
I am detailed oriented and some would call me a "perfectionist"  I love to deliver a product that "wows" my client.  I treat every property as if it were my own, and shoot it in the best possible way so that it looks good and SELLS!
