"There was so much meanness in the atmosphere, but marvelous things pierce through the darkness of poverty and racism. You meet all kinds of people that help put life in perspective and turn the horror into some kind of lesson or avenue of awakening that lives with you all your days." -Rest In Peace Ruby Dee #RIPRubyDee #OssieDavis #RubyDee #MLK #MotherSister

Miss Gainesville | Miss Florida Pageant 2014

The Miss Gainesville Scholarship Program, an affiliate with the Miss Florida/Miss America Organization, has maintained a tradition of empowering American women to achieve their personal and professional goals, while providing a forum in which to express their opinions, talent and intelligence. Shooting this annual event for the past two years, it’s amazing seeing these young ladies reactions when their hard work pays off.¬†Congratulations to winners Keiko Osuma (Miss Gainesville), Savannah Gribbins (Miss Florida Gator), Jordan Thorp (Miss Gainesville’s Teen), Casana Fink (Miss Ocala’s Teen) and Shelby Bomford (Miss Florida Gators Teen).

Congratulations to my mentor and friend Robert Lawson, former university photographer of my alma mater North Carolina Central University (@nccu), on receiving the NCCU Athletics Lifetime Achievement Award today. This man helped me become a better photographer and have tough skin lol! Here he is showing one of his photographs of NCCU’s William Jones Building covered in snow during my photography class where it all began!
