Southworth Photography | About

I am a professional photographer specializing in editorial and commercial photography. I have over 30 years of newspaper experience and have been a professor of photography at the University of South Carolina Aiken for the past eleven years.
I attended Syracuse University and received a Bachelor of Science in Photo Communications. During my career as a photojournalist I completed a Master of Fine Arts in Photography at the University of South Carolina.
As a newspaper photographer I photographed United States presidents, breaking news, sports, and feature photography.
I have been involved in the production of two books on my adopted town of Aiken, South Carolina. My work has appeared in major newspapers, magazines and in galleries.

As a professor of photography I have blended the strengths of documentary and fine art photography for myself and my students.
"I have loved the process of photography from the moment I took my first images. My work is about how light and space create mood and content in a photo."

Thank you for taking your time to view my photography.
