• 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!

ETCH Cutest Baby Contest at West Town

Last weekend Lisa Norman-Hudson and myself photographed around 70 kids, age 6 and under, at West Town Mall for Children’s Hospital. Voting was held yesterday and today, and the whole process was something I will always treasure. The kids were a blast as always, but today when they announced that over $12,000 had been raised […]

  • SUSAN EVERETT - Will photos be posted online or do you need to go to mall and make donation.

  • admin - Susan, all that happens at the Mall Saturday (today 5-22-10) and Sunday. I think it runs from 10 to 5 on Saturday and for just a little while starting at Noon on Sunday.

  • Natalie - Is this going on in 2011?

  • admin - Natalie, as far as I know it’s going to happen this year but I’ve not received any information on it yet. I’ll see what I can find out though! We are running our own “2011 Knoxville’s Cutest Baby/Toddler Contest” here.

  • olivia stinson - I would like to know about any other baby contest’s as well, thanks

Netbook’s and Photographer’s, Do They Play Nice?

So after having a few small problems with my big bad trusty HP Laptop, I decided two things…1) I needed a backup laptop, and 2) I really wanted to try something smaller. I did a bit of research and it looked like one of the better Netbooks in town was being carried by Verizon, and […]

  • jeanne hanson - Randy, is this computer something you would use to shoot to straight from camera?

  • admin - Jeanne,
    That’s an excellent question! It should work really well for that, gimme a day or two and I’ll give it a try and we will see how it works.

  • admin - I’m way past due on replying here, but I’m still in love with the Netbook. It’s not going to replace a “real” computer, but is definitely capable of doing everything I want it to, including shooting tethered. I think it’s important that a Netbook has 2GB of Ram, a real hard drive, and Windows 7.0 PREMIUM.

There’s some really good high school baseball being played right now, and the semifinal game with Mt. Juliet and Farragut was one of the best HS baseball games I’ve ever seen. The complete galleries are […]
