• 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!

  • Shannon Sartin - Wow…Sports Illustrated here you come!! Terrific shot

  • Disintrested 3rd Party in Pompano - This is one of the shots that wowed my colleague who used to coach college BB. Several minutes after she’d seen your work she came to me and began to describe each shot in detail. It was weird. She knew what the players were doing, used terms like “guard,” “defend,” “shoot” (People apparently can do this without a camera!), “leftie” and “dunk” (which apparently can be done without a doughnut!). I just look for focus, exposure, story and composition.

    BTW, she asked me if I knew that the guy sitting behind you was John Calipari. I didn’t.
