Clemson vs Wofford

I was super excited to be able to shoot the Clemson vs Wofford game on Sat 09/05/15.  In fact, I was so excited I couldn’t sleep at all the night before.  I have to laugh at myself for getting so nervous, but it’s true those butterflies still flutter in my tummy. It was a beautiful, sweltering SC day to have the opening season game.  The pending rain was kind enough to wait until after the game was over. After I set myself up in the dungeon of a media room and got over my camera and lens envy, Read More

My Favorite of 2014

Another year in the books!  I feel like it was just a few months ago that I was compiling my favorite images from 2013. Life is getting faster and faster. So without further ado, here are some of my favorite images from 2014. It usually is a hard process to weed down to a few of my favorites, however, this year wasn’t difficult at all because I didn’t travel as much.  Some of the images probably shouldn’t be in here, but with a few of them I just said screw it, and so they are in there!  It’s sometimes hard to be objective when they’re your own Read More

Happy New Year

Happy New Year From Our House to Yours! Another 365 days have come and gone and once again I find myself a little shocked  at how rapidly it went. I hope that you all have had a blessed 2014.   Here is a quick Massey ‘year in review’ from 2014. Read More

Downtime in the Smoky’s

“The best remedy for those who are afraid, lonely or unhappy is to go outside, somewhere where they can be quite alone with the heavens, nature and God. Because only then does one feel that all is as it should be and that God wishes to see people happy, amidst the simple beauty of nature. As longs as this exists, and it certainly always will, I know that then there will always be comfort for every sorrow, whatever the circumstances may be. And I firmly believe that nature brings solace in all troubles.”

Fall in the Smoky’s

It has been a funny year of hardly any travel until now.  I just wrapped up a trip from the Great Smoky Mountain National Park to enjoy the Fall colors. Usually I travel and shoot alone, but this time it was fun to meet up with a great group of like-minded friends and spend the weekend shooting together.  We spend time in two of my favorite spots in the park,  Tremont and Cade’s Cove. I also went by myself up to Read More

USC Game, What Fun


Last night I had the privilege to shoot at the USC vs UT game.  It was so much fun being in a stadium full of crazy fans supporting their team. Just the cheering alone sent chills down my spine.  It often fascinates me that a group of people can united in one effort and cause so much energy.

Lawrdy, the media room was like being in  a china store when I was little and my mom would say, “don’t touch anything, only look.” I had to fight the urge to grab ahold of those 600mm lenses and Pro cameras and just play with them. Read More

Head to Head Complete

First of all, let me just start off by saying thank you to all who supported, helped and encouraged me along the whole 550 miles of my trip.  I really appreciated the text messages, the IM’s and just reaching out to me to let me know you were thinking of me.  It made those long days of riding a little bit easier.  It has been nice to have a few days home recouping from my trip.  All parts of my body are feeling better especially my buttocks. My bruises are darkening into a nice deep purple color from Monday’s wreck. The welts from the  hives went away yesterday only leaving a little itch and red spots, and my fingers are slowly getting their feeling back into them.  So all is going well.  I can’t say the same for my bike though. My poor Cannondale probably has seen her last mile in Hilton Head.  The stick that got lodged in-between the wheel and her frame, unfortunately, ended up cracking and denting her.   Read More

Ending With a Bang Day 9

Did you know that morning traffic in Charleston starts way before 6:30 am and the sun doesn’t come up until 7:20 am.  That left me with a choice of getting up at 5 and riding in the dark or sucking up traffic a little bit before sunrise.  I chose to suck up traffic at 6:30.  However, it was so foggy that even though the city lights were enough to light my way, I was really concerned about other people seeing little ol’ me riding a bike with a little tail light.

Bridge Day day 8

Yesterday was a perfect day spending it with my son and family and friends at the Citadel for Parent’s Weekend.  We got to walk around in his battalion and watch the class of 2018 become official cadets.  I love this time at the Citadel.  You get to see the new knob parents beam with pride as they watch the ceremony of their knob finally make it to the bottom of the totem pole of the cadet rank structure.   Read More

Breaking Point Day 7

My plans had been to drive with Kaitie to Charleston today to meet up with Derek and family for Parent’s weekend at the Citadel.  He said he would be available after 3 because he needed to study a bit before the weekend.  So I jumped on my bike hoping to get to Mt Pleasant.  I knew it would be a long day, but I had such a good day yesterday I thought I could do it again.  Wrong!  South Carolina roads are NOT like North Carolina roads.
