The Center For Defense And Homeland Security

That is how the title reads from the latest advertising literature from Fayetteville State University.  A little while back I was hired to help capture  the advanced scientific side of FSU.  These images were to be used in a full color brochure of which parts can be seen below.   Disclaimer: On the scanned in brochure pages not every single image on every page is from me.  Some are from stock photography resources as well as other photographers.    I’ve included my images in their natural form so that they can be more easily viewed.

Fayetteville State University Alumni – Ed Mitchell “Pitmaster”

The other day I received an envelope from Fayetteville State University which contained the latest copy of their magazine.   When I looked at the cover it brought back some very good memories of when I was  sent on assignment by FSU to capture their Alumni Ed Mitchell “Pitmaster” . He is the culinary guru behind the very sophisticated BBQ restaurant called “The Pit”.   All that I can say is that this is some of the best BBQ that I’ve tasted from a restaurant and everyone should try them out. If you look carefully at the images you will notice that this is an upscale classy restaurant that sells some good Q.   Below are some of the original photographs followed by a subset of the images used in their magazine.

As I worked my way around the restaurant Mr. Mitchell told me that I had to get a shot of his winery collection. Below is a vantage point that shows you how the customers can easily see the assortment of wine that can be ordered.

After the shoot was complete Mr. Mitchell provided me with this very delicious plate of perfectly cooked BBQ surrounded by tasty fixins. Instead of drinking the wine I went with good ole fashioned iced tea.
