New Series to Mark 20th Year in Photography

To mark the occasion of 20 years in photography, I have begun a series of photos that marry my love for the random design that occurs when nature and manmade object meet with my love for random design in nature. Sounds confusing, but I am very happy with the results.

For now, these images are available at my Etsy shop.

New Wrightsville Beach Photos

Crystal Break
Originally uploaded by jwgoldenphoto.
Returning again to Wrightsville Bech, the waves were head high from a tropical storm that was out near Bermmuda. Got some really nice shots of and from both Johnnie Mercer's Pier and Crystal Pier.

Next up: a trip up to Topsail and down to Southport, maybe over to Bald Head again.

Composite Panoramics

I have been doing quite a lot of composite panoramic photos as of late. That's where you take multiple shots of a scene, each concentrating on a different portion of what you see, over a 180° arc. It takes some work in the computer afterwards to correct perspective differences between the shots, but it is pretty amazing what you end up with in the end.

I take mine without the use of a tripod, unless the light is low. The featured picture was taken from the bridge to Wrightsville Beach, NC, looking out over the intracoastal waterway. What is really interesting is how the image goes from what is a late afternoon light on the left to a sunset on the right. That effect was created as the exposure changed during the shot.

The good folks at Salt Marsh Kayaks allowed me access to their dock on the shore of Banks Channel in Wrightsville Beach, North Carolina to photograph the channel and their colorful armada of kayaks and catamarans.

If you are in town, and want to take sailing or kayak lessons, or a kayak tour of the surrounding area, give them a call at (910) 509-2989 or visit their website at

The photo E-tail site is underway

For some time, I have been working on getting all of my "analog" photography available for purchase online. After recently beginning to work digitally, the process for all new photography has gotten easier, and we even now have a backlog of new images just waiting to be entered on the new site.

We will be launching a new site for this purpose, The site is just barely functioning at this point, but we hope to have a fully functioning site by the end of the summer.
