• Who’s This Randy Dude?

    Well, that's me! I'm from East TN, married to the lovely Laura, have way too many kids (two of which are Active Military), and we live in Knoxville.

    On the photography side I have the coolest photography studio in Knoxville (ok, maybe I am a bit biased), have won several awards, teach a variety of photography classes & workshops, love working with kids, high school seniors, and families, and shoot a lot of sports (bad habit #3). My images have been published worldwide, including on two Sports Illustrated covers and many other national and international magazines and newspapers. I have photographed everything from newborns to underground mines to some very awesome images of kids and high school seniors, and yeah it's a blast!

    My goal is to produce stunning images of my subjects using creative backgrounds, a great relationship with my subjects, dramatic lighting, and awesome posing. Thanks for stopping by!

  • Carol - I love, I love, I LOVE these pics! Thank you, again and again, for being SO easy to work with and capturing all those moments that WE saw and enjoyed that no one else would have without you being there! Our very private ceremony can now be enjoyed by our entire family, through the story you tell in your pictures. Your eye was exactly what I wanted and, despite the rain, you made even my wilted hair look beautiful! Trust me folks, I didn’t look this good! Randy did that! Can not WAIT to see the rest! Especially me and my Blackberry! LOL!

  • admin - Carol,
    You’re too kind! You guys were a blast and made it easy for us. Many thanks to Laura, Jim, and also to Steve Hall for allowing us the use of Cherokee Mills, we would have had some serious issues without the building!

  • Jackie MacRae - Behold Photographics - Some very unusual angles – I especially like the splash of bright colour made by the flowers.

  • Knoxville Wedding Photographers » Knoxville Wedding Photographer - […] We have got all of the final retouches and edits completed on Carol and John’s AWESOME Wedding! Here’s the final Animoto, more images are located HERE […]

Porsches at European Auto Garage

Mr. David Hinkle from European Auto Garage contacted me this morning, there were some very nice 996’s and 997’s at his shop today and we thought it would be a great time to capture some images. The 997 is actually on the cover of “Excellence” this month. I have several more to process, I should have them up in a few days.  Best viewed with the Pic Lens Option.

UT Photography Class

I had the opportunity to assist Mr. Tom Geisler with his “Fundamentals of Digital Photography” Class Field Trip today.
Tom is an amazing instructor and I highly recomend his classes. Of course we had a wonderful time walking around downtown Knoxville, it’s just an amazing place to stroll around with a camera in hand. We even ran across the Porsche Club having an event at Market Square. Here’s some images from today, best viewed with the Pic Lens option and then click on the full screen box in the lower right corner and just let the slideshow play.
