“Bit Dean”

A super image of Bit Dean from Eastpoint, Florida. I have photographed Bit many times over the years with some great results. This is one of the best straight portraits of him I’ve done. He has always been known for being barefoot all year long. Here is one more from 2014, taken at one of my workshops.

“Make My Day”

I was working on some prints for my show at Douglasville Cultural Arts Center and ran across this image from Apalachicola Bay. My friend Vinson Smith and I were out on the bay photographing the oystermen and he had a model for some nude work later on. When we approached Roger he said she could come on the boat and tong for oysters. We then asked if she could get nude, he said yes expecting that we were kidding. He and his helper had a blast with this.
