Jason Dail

Jason DailJason Dail

I am a CREATOR, a photographer / director of photography, and a disgruntled architect. I have won awards internationally at all those things yet the most successful thing that I have ever created is my life. I live a felicitous life. I see talent a mile away and it makes me feel overwhelmingly happy. I love people who can make anything out of nothing and are happy to give everything for nothing in return. I love coincidence and how great planning can look just like it. I hope that the work speaks for itself however it is always my goal to create something awe inspiring for all my clients, whether families or media outlets.

Ian Dunn with Nick Pironio

arrowheadambrotype  brentdeaddads  joshdeaddads

Ian F.G. Dunn is a North Carolina born photographer living and working in downtown Raleigh. Having been taught the workings of a traditional wet darkroom at the age of 10, his love of hand-printing and processing has remained steadfast throughout the infancy of our digital age. Ian's work focuses on structure, clarity and balance found in the landscapes of rural and urban North Carolina. His photographs attempt to reveal abstractions from scenes often viewed but rarely observed. The, arguably, objective quality of "rightness" is continually sought out, kneaded, and explored.

Nick Pironio

His images are about being afraid to say yes, yet more afraid not to. He captures these hesitations through portraits and candid shots. His time between adventures is filled with editing and printing. He's always creating.

Raymond Goodman


I have supported CAM by word & deed since the early 90's when I first put a square orange & blue CAM sticker on my blue 240 Volvo. The first time I could, I opened that big yellow door & joined CAM as a member & am thrilled to renew every year! It is a place our 4yo longs to return to only minutes after having a visit. She loves her member card & collection of colored CAM visitor tabs, she loves the bright open space and also loves the art. CAM is a special place. As a photographer of people I seek to find that inner space within a subject. Once the perception settles between the subject and the photographer I begin to engage the shutter & search to capture that volume between. Each interaction is different, sometimes a chortle, a yawn, an intensity or a soulful calm comes through, something always comes through. I try to soak up the personality before me, to pull it out of it's inherent shyness & reluctance to reveal from behind the masks we wear. I shoot for that space in between, that space behind the mask. I'm a father, a beekeeper and a husband living and working in Raleigh, NC.

Eve Hobgood


Eve Kakassy Hobgood is a portrait photographer specializing in babies, children and families. Named Best Local Photographers by Daily Candy Kids NYC, "Clients hire her for her hip, breezy lifestyle portraits." From an early age, I took an interest in the arts. My grandmother is an artist; she works in different medias but her true passion started in photography. As I spent many days in her darkroom with her, I soon developed a passion for photography. I attended Savannah College of Art and Design. My studies consisted of art history with a concentration in photography. Along my travels, photography has played a central role in my explorations. I have worked with some amazing documentary photographers where I learned various techniques. After moving to New York, I worked for the worldwide photographers cooperative, Magnum photos. Recently, I archived the private photography collection for Keith Richards for an autobiography. Moving along, I started photographing friends and their families, newborns and all of the parties…it has been a blast.

Sonja Lombard


I capture moments that tell your story. My passion is to photograph the beauty, spirit and soul of my subjects in all of life's stages. I strive to reveal personalities, emotion and relationships between individuals in my photographs. To me photography is about communicating through imagery. A good photograph needs to stir something in its audience. My work in words is crisp, clean and contemporary.

Photographer of people, places, and people in places. I go in for simplicity, elegance, lines, light, humor, and a little bit of the fantastical. I mean, why be a photographer if you can’t create your own world? North Carolina born and raised, I live in Raleigh and work everywhere.

Tony Pearce

Tony Pearce 01Tony Pearce 21000 Faces Project

The significance in an empty space. The humor in the expressionless. The leopard Speedo that’s way too small. For me, a great photograph tells a story through what it’s missing. In every image I create, I seek a balance—or, sometimes, a tension—between what I choose to reveal and what I choose to give away. I’m picky and hands on because I want my images to be uncomplicated. I look for meaning by stripping a thing, an idea, or a person, down to its barest elements. I find my inspiration in restraint— without the distractions of extra props or obvious retouching, my subjects have room to just be. I want to find what is real and honest without a whiff of judgment. I guess it would just be easier if I said I believe less is more.

Harris Welles

DonnyDeutsch  LaurieJ  TobyTwining

As a husband, father, sailor, triathlete, and artist - I strive to get the most out of my commitments and enjoy the journey. Life is what you make it. After studying architecture in college, I returned to photography and moved to New York City. Image making for me is about discovery. I’ve used assorted films, cameras, techniques, and software over the years to produce a unique look - but that doesn’t matter. A powerful visual image, no matter how it’s created, stands on it’s own. My goal is to produce an image that will engage the mind, spin it’s wheels, and perhaps trigger an emotion. Thus, I love the surreal. I also love big images and how they can transform a space by grabbing the viewers attention.

Geoff Wood 


I'm a commercial and editorial photographer in Raleigh, NC. But, first and foremost, I'm a husband to a beautiful and creative wife, Regan. A father to a hilarious and smack-me-in-the-face cute little girl named Gibson and a very shaggy daredevil named Crosby.
I started my career working in ad agencies as a graphic designer but photography soon took over. The years I worked in design were ideal training for my eye and vision.
What makes up the other bits of Geoff: music, sweet potato pancakes, cornbread, and a healthy fear of sharks.

For Exposure Time: Geoff will be photographing a maximum of two people at a time for all group shots.
