• 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!

  • Stephen King - I’ll bet you are proud of your son.

    Tell him Mr Stephen King said thank you for his service to our country.

    BTW Randy I just got my second family to photography under Op Love.

    They are shippin out in June so I have some time.

    I am sure you are going to get more families to photograph in Knoxville, TN

  • admin - Stephen,
    Thanks for the kind comments, I’m so proud of him I can’t hardly stand it! The best I can tell, his barracks is 3 buildings over from the one I was in about 23 years ago, pretty weird…
    Great to hear about the OpLove sessions, we have a Reserve Unit leaving in March and I’m getting the word out to them.
