East Coast state of mine

I was able to end my career at the Panama City News Herald in Panama City, Fla., with my sights set on a return to my hometown, Savannah, Ga. With my youngest daughter Hedda enrolled at The New College of Florida in Sarasota and my eldest Valerie on the verge of finishing her degree at University of Central Florida in Orlando, it seemed that the stars had aligned themselves to make my transition as seamless as could be. I had work lined up with Resort Photography so I would be able to hit the ground running. I was all like full steam ahead. Then came the unexpected tragedy of the death of my older brother Ruskin at age 54. He was in Winston-Salem, NC and the whole family went up there to be by his side as he left this world. That was on July 18, and now nearly a month later, we are all still reeling. But through it all I have been able to effectively move to Savannah...that worked out. And, I have been working on HIlton Head Island, SC a quick skip from Savannah and on Tybee Island, Ga which is otherwise known as Savannah Beach.

It is a whole new thing working on this side. The beach here is not much like the beaches near Panama City, or Rosemary Beach, or Destin. Here the sand is firmer and seems to blow around less. And hooray, there are no tacky ropes around the sand dunes. So all of this brings to now and I have a few shots to share from my first East-Coast shoots. Awesome people and beautiful locations. Thanks Dad for being such a trooper and making my move go so smoothly. It is truly great to be home.

Robert,

I'm sorry to hear about the loss of your brother. We'll miss you at the News-Herald, but I'm always inspired by those who follow their dreams and am glad to see you following yours. Especially when they bring you closer to your family. Keep tweeting and let us know how you are doing--Devon

Sorry to hear about your brother Robert and sorry to know you've left Panama City. We only met once, but I wish you all the best. Beautiful work by the way! I especially like the shot of the couple with the lighthouse behind.
