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 [...]

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.

Yesterday afternoon, I was fortunate enough to be the only photographer for a civilian media outlet on hand for a closed demonstration of the U.S. Army’s newly revised fitness tests for soldiers. Back in the days of print, I would wake up and head to the news stand to get a copy of whatever publication [...]
A photo gallery of snow photographs of the Broad River and Saluda River during the snow storm on January 10, 2011.
One of the great things about digital photography is that the cameras have become so advanced they can do a lot of the work for us, but thats also a tremendous drawback, because we tend to be lazy and forget the basic fundamentals of taking a good photograph.
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.
I just found out that Command Sergeant Major Teresa King, who I spent a day photographing back in September of 2009, after she was named the first female commandant of the U.S. Army Drill Sergeant School, was named to Oprah’s “2010 O Power List”. Congrats to CSM King, who is an amazing person. It doesn’t [...]

After reading the story The Day the Music Died in The State today, about how Richaland County just shut down all of the bands that practice at the Sumter Street Storage sheds, I really can’t help but wonder what can be done to help make this area more friendly to the creative community. The [...]
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 [...]

I just wanted to make a quick post to let everyone know that I have not forgotten that this blog exists. Things have been very busy lately, both shooting and business wise. I’ve got a lot of new things that I’m working to make happen before the end of the year. I’m making plans to [...]

Its the time of year when things start to cool off, kids go back to school, and football fields at high schools and colleges come alive on Friday nights and Saturday afternoons. It has been so long since I’ve had a Friday night or Saturday afternoon off during this time of year that I don’t [...]
©2007 Brett Flashnick/All Rights Reserved When the alarm went off at 6am on Sunday morning to get out of bed to go shoot another assignment was the last thing on my mind, especially after having 14 hour days Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, and late night of shooting on Saturday. However this is one of those assignments [...]
Over the past few days I’ve had the opportunity to spend some behind the scenes time with the family of 2008 Republican Presidential hopeful, Mitt Romney as they toured South Carolina. I had a great time getting to know Ann, Mary, and Parker Romney, as we drove around the state on their tour bus. ABOVE: [...]
Seven and a half hours of waiting, for six seconds of excitement… That is what Saturday boiled down to. It was the classic scenario of “hurry up and wait… and wait… and wait,” where all I was told was that “We know this is going to happen some time today, but we’re not sure when,” [...]
