About this pro

I'm a former Senior Photographer for a Time Inc. division that was based in Birmingham. I was on staff for over 14 years and I shot for Southern living, Cooking light, Coastal Living, Oxmoor House book division which produced the stunning cookbooks and many other of our titles. My professional career has taken me to some of the most amazing locations shooting in beautiful homes, photographing incredible food, people and places. I've worked extensively with natural light, strobe and hot lights. I've worked with all formats of professional cameras and I am very adept technically with equipment and computer photography programs. I feel confident I can have you taking well exposed, in focus and more interesting photographs. Please check out my website: huckabayphotography.com

Last summer I was Director of Photography for the National Senior Games held in Albequrque, NM. The event hosted over 13,000 athletes from around the world. I had about 15 photographers I was directing and I was shooting every event from swimming to basketball to pickle ball to a marathon. I was there for almost a month and it was challenging but also exhilerating.
