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?
