Bud Sweetman poses for a portrait with the Purple Heart and Bronze Star he recieved for serving in World War II. Sweetman, who will have dontaed 300 pints of blood began donating when he was discharged from the Army after spending 13 and a half months in the hospital for an injury he sustained in Vire, France in 1944. (Jason A. Frizzelle) This collection of images illustrates a variety of portraits from headshots to location portraits. This collection of images represents more than a decade of work at newspapers and wire services throughout North Carolina. I now practice my style of story-telling photography for weddings community events as well as portrait sessions ranging from brides to local authors. After graduating from Randolph Community College I spent more than a decade documenting communities throughout Eastern North Carolina with a camera. My passion for capturing story-telling images has allowed me to witness everything from High School Football to Hurricanes and even Presidential visits.
My award-winnng photography has been published internationally, appearing in publications such as The Atlanta Journal Constitution, The Los Angeles Times, USA Today, The Guardian of London, and Time Magazine.
As a child I loved the writing of Ray Bradbury, who was often noted for “tuning the ordinary into the extraordinary.” That’s the approach I take to every assignment, finding the priceless moments in everyday life. Weather I’m capturing a high school touchdown celebration or a bride’s final minutes before saying “I do,” I’m preserving an extraordinary memory.
Whether I'm documenting a diverse community or capturing a couple's first dance, I'm photographing something extraordinary!
