Photography by D.M. Heaberlin

I find that my specialty is scenery photos from outside of the city. I travel a lot with my husband, so I take pictures anywhere and everywhere if it seems like the perfect time. Photography is a passion of mine. The sun, and the stars. The dusk, and dawn. When I see it, I seize the opportunity. Sometimes I have to get down in the dirt, or in the snow- but that’s how you get the greatest photos.

Photography by Ray Murray

Fashion, by the very nature of its name, is designed to reflect the attitudes of society and the responsibility of us, as photographers, to capture the image and present it to the public. We’ve watched this dance for decades now and it is fascinating! One day the look is tall, thin and bohemian, with the next image being rigid lines and ultra conservative.  If I had any advise for photographers, it would be not to take everything so seriously, but to be flexible and adaptive.

prtRay Murray is a freelance photographer based in Columbia, South Carolina. A creative spirit that emerged from the late decadent 1970’s and late nights at Studio 54 in New York City, he continues to enjoy success on both sides of the camera. Happily married to his husband of 18 years, he still has a passion for the arts, culture, and state of current affairs. Having certification from the prestigious Santa Fe Workshop, he continues his curious quest for spotting trends on the street and the impact they have on our daily lives.

Gothic Victorian by Haley Gallagher

I have always wanted to do a Victorian period set but never knew where to find the clothing for the process. We decided to go look at a local costume shop and they happened to have the perfect skirts that we needed. It was a blast for them to transform into models from a different century and it made us want to wear big skirts and corsets everyday.


Haley is a fine art photographer from Cedar Rapids, Iowa. She studied through The New York Institute of Photography. Her favorite things to photograph are stylized shoots, nature, wildlife, and pets. Her dream is to one day work for National Geographic photographing polar bears and penguins. For now, she’ll stick to photographing models and her pets.

Winston Salem by Patrick Lynch

The images I make in local cities became more of a project after photographing direct positive images using my 5×7 camera in Winston Salem. I decided I wanted to explore the city a bit more and be a bit quicker on my feet so I started making trips with my digital cameras. I still prefer making black and white images. Stone, concrete, metal and glass seem to lend themselves well for this. The architecture found in the cities is amazing to me as is seeing how it has changed over time. When I take members of my photo club with me I tell them to look up. Much of the story in the city is up. 


selfi-5x7-fbsPatrick M. Lynch currently calls Welcome, North Carolina home. A photographer for over twenty-five years, Patrick has worked in various formats of both film and digital. Most of his current efforts involve black and white photography and he often experiments with one of his large format cameras using direct positive paper or paper negatives. Patrick enjoys creating high contrast images that are simple yet attention-grabbing, evoking emotion in the viewer.

In both his professional and personal work, Patrick’s images continue to be reproduced and displayed throughout the world. Photokina in Cologne, Germany was a special honor as the request was to display his direct positive work at the Ilford booth. You can find more of his work on his website and on Facebook.
