Open Aperture Photography

You need top quality professional photos and videos to represent your business. Think about this...

How often do you see a terrible headshot and think, "Hey, they're at the top of their field!" How often do you see terrible event photos and think, "That looks like so much fun! I need to get to the next event!" How often do you see a terrible photo of food and think, "Yummmmm!"

Professional people and professional businesses use professional photography. This is your chance to present yourself in the right light to your potential customers and clients. Creating a strong brand presence by using professional photos and videos will build your business and entice your customers. It's as simple as that.

Open Aperture Photography was founded as a husband and wife wedding photography team in 2010. Commercial photography was later added on the side in 2013 and slowly began taking over the business as word of mouth grew. Branding video was added in 2019 due to the need for it amongst our clients.

Over the last several years, Open Aperture Photography has worked with international companies like PepsiCo, local landmarks like Tryon Palace and Beary Merry Christmas, and countless small businesses and individual business professionals.

Before I was a photographer, I moved around the country doing TV news. I moved from Pennsylvania, where I'm originally from, to Texas to Florida to North Carolina for various news jobs in the course of a few years. My wife and I assumed that NC would be another pitstop and we'd be on our way in two to three years. Instead, we fell in love with New Bern and we put down roots. We're here to stay.

In addition to photography and videography, I'm also an educational speaker. I speak for various colleges, chambers, and other community groups to teach small business owners how to run their businesses, market them, and create their own visuals.

I'm fortunate to be married to an incredible woman, my wife Amanda, and we have an energetic, spirited daughter, Victoria.
