and welcome to the site!
began my career in the newspaper business in
1965 when I joined the staff of The Daily Reflector
in Greenville, NC. I worked there for 28 years
as the chief photographer and black and white
lab manager. During my tenure there I implemented
a color lab structure and processed the first
color photo to run in the newspaper as offset.
While working at the paper, I formed my own
licensed business developing special photographic
techniques for copying antique photos using
film and the older silver print processes. Meanwhile,
I continued my career as a news photojournalist,
winning numerous photojournalism awards beginning
in 1968 along with Associated Press citations.
I continued my newspaper career when my family
moved to Greensboro in 1992, Forrest Photography
moved to Greensboro as well. While I worked
for the Jamestown News and High Point Enterprise
for a time, Forrest Photography continued to
grow as well, and I now specialize full time
in photo restoration.
the advent of digital photography, I have coupled
high-end computer software along with state-of-the-art
large format scanning equipment to develop exciting
new methods of photo restoration. I added graphics
to the business name in 1994.
wife is my partner, who works with me on some
projects and I still create scenic photography
in addition to producing graphics for clients.
I love to shoot as much as I can...my favorites
are the scenes of North Carolina! I've recently
been selected for photo assignments from "Our
State" & Signature magazines.
hope you enjoy the photos & the web site!
