Dr. Julius Scruggs

Dr. Julius Scruggs

It’s not often that you get to photograph someone that is running for the presidency for the National Baptist Convention (NBC). The largest historically black baptist organization.  Well, this summer I got that chance to photograph Dr. Julius R. Scruggs, and his staff, for his campaign for the presidency… and I must say that I enjoyed the opportunity!

During his campaign, many of my images were used in various ways.  I must say that seeing your work in action is a GOOD feeling.  One that I will always treasure.

In Sept. of this year (2009), Dr. Scruggs won the presidency of the NBC and is now over about 7.5 million Christians. As a result, Gospel Today wrote this article on Dr. Scruggs and one of my photos from the shoot was submitted.

To see my work used in Gospel Today, gave me a feeling like non-other!  I was elated to see two of my images of Dr. Scruggs in use on pages 2 and 28.  I specifically took the photo on page 28 as one for victory!  Pretty cool huh?
