Take a look inside the photo gallery from the June 2012 – Chamber After Hours hosted by Genesis Studios, in Cayce, SC.
2011 was an interesting year, with a lot of changes. The collection of images in the gallery below is the best way for me to share that. I’ve been putting together galleries of my favorite images for the past seven years, and this gallery looks completely different than any other gallery I have shared before, [...]
Exactly a year ago I finally decided to break down and get an iPhone 4 (my first iPhone). One of my favorite things about this phone is the camera and huge variety of photo editing/sharing apps that are available for it. I’ve had several phones with cameras before this one, and always found myself [...]
Five years in Twenty photos for South Carolina Quarterback number Five, Stephen Garcia.
Thoughts, photo gallery and gear used on assignment by Flashnick Visuals, LLC owner/photographer Brett Flashnick as he covered Auburn’s upset of No. 10 South Carolina for the Associated Press.
A major storm rolled through Columbia, SC yesterday afternoon while we were editing images after an early morning assignment for an editorial client. Thankfully we only lost power for about 10 seconds, and had no other damage. After it was all over Brett saw this amazing double rainbow outside. He grabbed the Canon 5D MKII [...]
A photo gallery from Flashnick Visuals, LLC owner/photographer, Brett’s assignment from the Associated Press to photograph the Navy Midshipmen as they rolled into Columbia, SC to take on the South Carolina Gamecocks for the first time since 1988.
Some thoughts and photographs from our recent travels to Nashville, Tennessee minus the Country Music. Including our visit to the closing weekend of the Warhol Live exhibit, the Parthenon at Centennial Park, and the Gaylord Opryland Hotel.
Four years ago Brett Flashnick was asked to photograph the first of many structural beams for the National September 11 Memorial and Museum as they rolled out of Owen Steel Company Inc., in Columbia, S.C. on September 10, 2007. Two massive, freshly painted I-beams were loaded onto a 50-foot flat bed trailer for their journey across the United States to Ground Zero in New York City.
The videos in this post about National Geographic photographer Sam Abell and Ira Glass of “This American Life” are a good reminder of why it’s important to work hard and persevere through the rough times of developing your craft. Whether its telling stories with photographs, video, or words. To become proficient you have to dedicate yourself to creating a large volume of work, and to become a master like Sam Abell you have to continue creating that volume for decades.
A photo gallery of snow photographs of the Broad River and Saluda River during the snow storm on January 10, 2011.
Not sure when I would ever see snow around the holidays in Columbia ever again (even though it was minimal) I took my cameras out for a ride, and this is what I saw.
A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to spend some time on the coast at one of my favorite places in the world, my friend Charles’ river house on Fenwick Island. The best thing about Fenwick is that it is private, and with the exception of about 5 houses which are all owned by [...]
I didn’t really have any actual Spanish music on my iPod when I went into the studio last night for the Spring 2009 Bottle Shoot for Spanish Vines, so Buena Vista Social Club had to suffice, to get me in the mood (yes I know its Cuban, not Spanish, but the vibes are similar, and [...]
The clock showed it was 2am, as I made way home to Columbia in the back seat of Mary Ann’s car early Sunday morning, following the 60th running of the Southern 500 at Darlington Raceway, in Darlington, SC. I was completely drained from two non-stop days of making my way around the “Lady in Black” [...]
Over the past few months, many things in my life have gone through significant changes. The road I am on today, is not the one I thought I would be on two years ago in some instances, or even four months ago in others. While the realization of necessary change has been a hard pill [...]
As tradition, during the first or second week of every new year I spend a day going back through all of the images I have created during the previous year to prepare for annual contest submissions. For me this is an opportunity to look back on what I have learned over the year, re-evaluate what [...]
It seems fitting that such a long campaign resulted in such a long election day. All total, mine was about 22 hours, and many many miles, of non-stop action. I finally managed to get a few hours of shut eye between 3:30am and 8:30am this morning (Wednesday). Now that I have had a chance to [...]
I went out this afternoon to photograph last minute campaigners under the grey skies of election day, and ran into friends Katie and Megan from the Lindsey Graham for Senate campaign, who were cheering on motorists as they made the daily mass exodus out of downtown on Tuesday, Nov. 4, 2008. Even Lt. Governor Andre Bauer [...]
Retired Army veteran, Walter Anderson, 74-years-old, waits for his turn in a voting booth at Burnside Elementary School in Columbia, S.C., Tuesday, Nov. 4, 2008.
When I was asked by a client to photograph the No.1 ranked team in High School Football, in the entire nation, I wasn’t sure what to expect, just another high school football game, or something unique. What I saw, the players on the James F. Byrnes Rebels bring to the table is the simple fact [...]
I just wanted to take a minute to post my favorite images of the Democratic and Republican nominees for president that I had the opportunity to make while covering their primary campaigns, and share a few things I learned during my time with them. (AP Photo/Brett Flashnick) Above: Sen. John McCain, R-Az., right, and [...]
The New York Times just posted a multimedia project I recently had the opportunity to work on, called “Patient Voices” which was about prostate cancer (there are others out there ranging from ADD to Infertility). For this project I photographed and interviewed ESPN Commentator and all around good guy, Mitch Laurance. I spent a great [...]
I’ve been working at this shot for a little while now, and have never managed to get one that I am this pleased with. In my mind it is not perfect, and I can still do better, thus I will try again next year (or during the fall race on Nov. 16), but just a [...]
