Lynse Watkins It takes a lot to keep us flying - great weather, awesome clients, amazing photographers, and superior ground control. “Ground Control to Major Tom…” We know you were singing it in your head. Lynse keeps us in line by overseeing daily operations and managing our spending. "No, you cannot buy a new plane.” Sheesh, she’s tough.
Tiffany Holmes A native of the Pacific Northwest, Tiffany has been in Nashville since 2012 pursuing her AA in Photography at Nashville State. She was scooped up for her talent in getting the job done. Now in charge of production, Tiffany makes sure the work looks great and gets out the door. And, when she is not busy with client work, loves flying, photography, hiking, her family and traveling to new places.
Rick Smith Rick comes to us with an MFA from Columbia College in Chicago where he was also an instructor. He continues spreading the knowledge of photography at the Art Institute in Nashville. He has taken to the sky like a duck to water and made all of his fellow SouthLight Salon Photographers very jealous.
Paul Chrisman Our resident pilot and drone operator. Paul loves nothing more than getting on site and getting great images with our drone, Connor (yes, you actually have to name them). We look forward to keeping him busy as we get more and more projects. Clear Prop!!
Johnny Gerhart When he’s not out shooting videos in gorgeous and remote locations, Johnny is in the skies of Kentucky, Tennessee, and wherever else we can send him. He also runs the drone like a champ, switching from cinematographer to operator with a twirl of his killer ‘stache. Shoot on, Johnny, shoot on.
Bonnie Whittemore Watch this one, she’s out for money! Bonnie helps us keep the dough rolling by taking care of deposits, paying bills, creating invoices….oh, and payroll…who could forget that?? She is not only a family member but a part of the team, keeping us entertained with her stories from the neighborhood, her dance escapades and her lovely daughter. With that, over and out!
