The Civil War at Night – Fort Clinch Under the Stars in HD

2013 09 Fine Fort Clinch 05 Civil War at Night

If you’ve followed us for any time, you probably know I am fascinated and moved by the heroes and horrors of the American Civil War.  Last week, we had the pleasure of shooting an event for Inovalon, which included a beautiful evening at Fort Clinch, a Civil War-era fort on the the northern tip of Amelia Island.  The fort itself has a relatively bloodless, but none the less fascinating history that I always enjoy.  To learn (and see) more about the fort, please feel free to visit our post on the 150th Anniversary of Union capture of the Fort.

But back to this shoot – while there I had the opportunity to capture some fine art images for our client as well as the typical event photos we provide.  The evening looked like rain, but by dusk a sliver of sky was lit ablaze by the setting sun, making for some amazing conditions for that Ken Burns style of sunset photography you may have seen during his documentary, The Civil War. The group was also treated to a pair of twilight field artillery firings courtesy of the a great group of civil war reenactors attached to the fort (below).

Amelia Island Wonders, Maybe its Maybelline?

2013 01 Maybelline Amelia 16

Just last night, we had the pleasure of photographing a another great event for the beauty industry at the Ritz-Carlton, Amelia Island.   Maybelline came to the Island to celebrate the years’ achievements, plan for the coming year, and say a fond and rather hilarious farewell to one of their own.

How’s that for a long and convoluted title?  As you may have noticed from our previous post, this week we had the pleasure of photographing the wonderful Stars event at the Ritz-Carlton, Amelia Island.   Let me tell you – the depth and quality of the food was certainly worthy of the stars.

The Stars Come Out in Amelia Island!

2013 01 Ritz Stars 03

This week, we had the pleasure of photographing a wonderful internal event for the Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company, hosted at the Ritz-Carlton, Amelia Island.   The event, built around the company’s premier agents from all over the world, was filled with all that we’ve come to expect from the resort – namely great ambiance, once-in-a-lifetime activities, and exceptional food!

As you can see from the slideshow below, the guests were treated to some wonderful activities – from two great culinary classes (below) hosted by the resort’s award-winning chefs, to an interactive visit to White Oak Conservation Center (above) – where guests had the opportunity to view a wide variety of protected and endangered species up close and personal.

Starry Night – Minus the Swirls…

Though this past week has been hot and humid again, before that we had this wonderful preview of fall with relatively low humidity and pleasant temperatures.  We also had a moonless night which made for some fun astro-photography up in Amelia Island.  Here are a few of my favorites from the shoot.   Enjoy – and of course, feel free to download as a desktop wallpaper!
