To continue from yesterday's post, which noted this blog's one year anniversary, I wanted to revisit several of my early posts.

Pythagoras and the Geometry of Gas
Tahiti in Hiding

|Stock images of Doug's are featured in the Charleston Area Convention and Visitors Bureau|
National Ad Campaign Media Kit
As you probably know, the field of commercial photography is extremely competitive. The Charleston market, although small, is no exception. There is a plethora of highly talented photographers working in the area. Some use Charleston as a base of operation while working in larger markets, like New York City or Atlanta. And since the Charleston metro area was recently ranked the number one brain-gain region in the U.S. over the last decade, fresh talent enters the market yearly.
This is why I am fortunate, very fortunate, that the style and content of my photography has earned a small niche in the Charleston market, primarily selling photo stock of the area. If you have a moment, you can check out a link to my stock photography website in the sidebar of this blog. Today's post illustrates the images selected for use in the Charleston Area Convention and Visitors Bureau (CVB) national ad campaign.
The good news this month for the CVB and the rest of Charleston is that the prestigious Conde Nast Traveler Magazine's 2011 Reader's Choice Travel Award selected Charleston as the top rated travel destination in the United States. Reasons for the selection included the growth of its nationally recognized restaurants, hotels and resorts, the world renown arts scene (see Spoleto Festival USA), the area's abundant history, the charming ambience of the historic district, and the city's noted Southern hospitality.
I hope you have a chance to visit Charleston one day. Spring (late March - early April) and Fall (October) are the prime times to visit. If you do travel here, you might see me wondering around the city, still searching for that quintessential Charleston shot.
