We've all heard the expression "a picture is worth a thousand words". And photos really are a special way to help tell the story of our lives - who we are and what's important to us.
And, of course, some images speak to us more strongly than others. More often than not we love a photo not so much because it shows us how we look but because it captures a very human element that is hard to express in words an authentic connection with those we love or with ourselves and how we show up or want to be seen in the world.
Whether you're looking to capture someone's attention with a professional headshot or want to commemorate the beautiful connection with your partner or family, I can help.
My name is Adam Chandler, and as a professional photographer in Goose Creek, SC. I truly find joy and fulfillment in the work I do. I love the adventure of photography and I continually immerse myself in learning and exploring how to improve my craft which includes learning new ways to connect with and capture my subjects. I truly understand that, for many people (if not most), even the idea of having your picture taken can cause a good bit of discomfort and anxiety. That's why I place so much importance on putting my subjects at ease while also really listening to any concerns or wants they have for their session.
I draw upon my technical knowledge of photography, my ability to connect with people, and my creativity to produce beautifully memorable photos for my clients. I believe that my unique creative vision and many years of experience combined with the way I strive to give my clients the most enjoyable experience possible sets me apart from some of the other great photographers in Goose Creek.
The importance of family is hard to overstate. From children to grandparents to nieces and nephews, families and the family dynamic can grow and change before you know it, with many beautiful milestones taking place along the way.
I think that one of the best ways to remember some of these important moments of togetherness is with a fun family photo session.
I absolutely love photographing families and, while no two families are the same, I always strive to give each session my all in order to best connect with and capture the uniqueness of each family. Even though each session is somewhat different, I approach each one with the same goal: to capture the distinct personality, affection, and energy of each family in order to provide authentic, engaging pictures and a joyful experience.
Whether you have a toddler that you want to celebrate or have grandparents in town for a visit, Goose Creek is an amazing city for family photography. There are so many locations in the Lowcountry that make for great family photography backdrops:
Whatever location you choose for family photography in Goose Creek, the Holy City is a wonderful place to explore and enjoy with friends and family.
As a family photographer in Goose Creek, one of the reasons why I love working with families so much (in addition to getting to meet some really awesome people) is the opportunity to combine my creativity with my ever-evolving technical skill. I also gladly accommodate the style preferences my clients are looking for - be it more traditional, posed images, or candid, playful pictures.
I use a clear yet relaxed style of direction to get you and your family engaged in our photography session, to help get authentic expressions that really show the unique dynamic and relationships of each family.
Here are just a few reasons why families choose Adam Chandler Photography for their family portraits:
A great headshot shows you at your best - whether you want to impress a prospective employer or need professional photography for your website. In today's digitally-intensive society, having a professional headshot or portrait of you or your team that stands out for all the right reasons is becoming a necessity. It's no surprise, then, that headshots and portraits are among the most popular genres of photography.
Headshots can be tricky, mostly because many (if not most) people don't like being in front of the camera (trust me, I totally get that). I know that for some clients, it can be hard to know what to do, what to wear or how to relax enough to let their authentic selves come through so that they can end up with a professional photo or headshot that inspires authenticity and confidence.
Fortunately, I have years of experience taking professional headshots of all types of people. No matter what your comfort level is with having your picture taken, I pride myself on being able to create the conditions necessary to help capture my clients as you want to be seen. Through lighting, posing and direct yet relaxed interaction I'll help guide you to great photos that youâll be proud to showcase and share with others.
A professional headshot or portrait is an investment into your personal brand, and here is why:
Being a great photographer means more than owning fancy equipment. While having expensive gear can be quite helpful, the real test of a professional, for me, has a lot more to do with being able to draw upon my deep understanding of the craft of photography so that I can focus more on connecting with and beautifully capturing my subjects without getting bogged down in figuring out the technical side of things. It's taken me many years to get where I am and I'm always striving to improve in order to continue to deliver the best pictures and most enjoyable experience possible for my clients.
Clients choose Adam Chandler Photography because my experience shows and they trust me to always give them the results and experience that they're looking for. Here are just a few qualities that my clients appreciate:
"As I hope you can tell by looking at my work, I really love my job. And most of all I love the people I get to meet and work with. I'd be honored and delighted to be chosen for your photography needs."Adam Chandler
One of my favorite things to do is to talk to clients about what they're looking for and how I can serve them. If you are in need of professional photography, let's talk today about what you have in mind. Whether you're looking for family or couples' photography in Goose Creek or want great new headshots for you or your team, I'm here to help every step of the way!

The Feb. 21 edition of the Tango Alpha Lima podcast features Stacy Pearsall, a retired Air Force combat photographer who has gone from documenting servicemembers in action to documenting veterans in the next stage of their lives.
In January, South Carolina Educational Television (SCETV) began airing Pearsall’s TV series “After Action.” In each episode, veterans talk about their service and what came after. Pearsall says her goal is to “demystify the military experience.” The profiled veterans talk “how we talk to each other when other people aren’t around,” in an effort to demonstrate to civilians how they can effectively communicate with the veteran community without “miscommunications,” and maybe even prevent tragedy.
Pearsall grew up in a family steeped in both the arts and the military. Her mother was an amateur artist who encouraged her and her sister; she later followed her sister into the Air Force. She describes her specialty as “how to capture a moment in time” that is both useful and poignant. When Pearsall was injured and transitioned out of active service, her doctors put many strictures on what she could do. But “servicemembers need a continuation of service,” so she started the Veterans Portrait Project in her VA hospital, which eventually grew to pictures and stories of 8,500 veterans in all 50 states over 11 years.
Another aid to Pearsall over this period was The American Legion. A Legion service officer helped with her transition, and Post 166 in Goose Creek, S.C., provided her with adaptive sports equipment. Although she no longer lives in Goose Creek, she is still a member of Post 166.
In “After Action,” Pearsall has deliberately pursued veterans who served in all areas of the military, not just the tip of the spear; “we have so much to give,” she says. Her hope for her series is to help veterans relate to their communities and their communities to them; “whether it’s happened to us or not, we can all relate to them …. Healing takes an entire nation.”
Pearsall is currently pursuing sponsorship for Season 2. Season 1 episodes can be seen on PBS or Amazon streaming services. The show’s website, www.afteractionshow.org, features resources for veterans.

A recently completed Summerville-area apartment complex is under new ownership.
Terwilliger Pappas Multi-Family Partners of Raleigh and Charlotte recently sold the 320-unit Solis Nexton complex at 6000 Front St. in the Nexton development for $78.4 million, according to Berkeley County land records.
The new owner of the one- to three-bedroom units in nine three- and four-story buildings near Flowertown is West Shore Nexton LLC of Boston.
The 11-acre site sits on the southwest corner of Pace and Front streets between Sigma Drive and Brighton Park Boulevard.
A vacant parcel near a high-traffic intersection in Goose Creek is slated for new commercial development.
Mims Amusement Co. recently sold a 2.1-acre tract at 108-112 Red Bank Road to JMCS Holdings Inc. for $1 million, according to Jack Owens with the commercial real estate firm NAI Charleston, which represented the seller. Lawrence Richard of Carolina One Real Estate represented the buyer.
JMCS is registered to Michael Scarafile, president of Carolina One Real Estate. He said the Habitat for Humanity of Berkeley County ReStore, currently across the street at 1 Belknap Road, plans to relocate into a new building on part of the recently acquired parcel.
A brewery-type restaurant with outdoor space is planned on the rest of the land. The tract is between a graffiti park and Gary Street, not far from U.S. Highway 52, also known as Goose Creek Boulevard.
Construction on the Habitat store could begin in three to six months with work on the restaurant/brewery business afterward, according to Scarafile.
Development is beginning to take shape on a new multifamily complex five years after plans were first submitted to Charleston.
Property owner Hawthorne at Daniel Island Apartments LLC recently cleared about 10 acres at 2800 Clements Ferry Road near Interstate 526 to build the 210-unit Hawthorne at Clements Ferry rental housing structure.
The Greensboro, N.C.-based firm bought the marshfront tract near the Cooper River marsh in 2018 for about $2.6 million, according to Berkeley County land records. The site is directly across from the I-526 eastbound on-ramp to Mount Pleasant. The development will include two five-story buildings, one with 111 units and one with 99 units, according to plans submitted to the city of Charleston.
Mungo Homes plans to build more houses in the Long Savannah development in West Ashley.
The Irmo-based builder recently submitted plans to the city of Charleston to build 237 houses on about 56 acres at the end of Barons Drive. Part of the development would border the backside of the houses on Blue Dragonfly Drive in the Hamilton Grove at Grande Oake neighborhood.
The builder paid $11.75 million for the land off Bees Ferry Road last March, according to Charleston County land records.
A Charleston-area real estate firm has joined forces with a Lowcountry homebuilder to market a new development in coastal North Carolina. Carolina One New Homes will handle sales for Johns Island-based New Leaf Builders’ waterfront Riverlights community in Wilmington.
The master-planned community is along the Cape Fear River.
Locally, New Leaf builds homes in Daniel’s Orchard in Summerville, Nexton near Summerville, Middleborough at Shadowmoss Plantation in West Ashley and Hayes Park on Johns Island.

GOOSE CREEK, S.C. (WCSC) - The city of Goose Creek unveiled an amphitheater in honor of S.C. Rep. Joe Daning in a surprise presentation Tuesday during his retirement celebration in Goose Creek.
Joseph Daning is a member of the South Carolina House of Representatives, representing District 92. He also was a Goose Creek City Council member for over 20 years and previous Goose Creek Mayor Pro Tempore.
Daning will retire from the S.C. House of Representatives in January 2023. Multiple former S.C. representatives, Mayor Gregory Habib, U.S. Rep. Nancy Mace and Daning’s family and friends attended the celebration.
All the speakers who gathered at the Immaculate Conception Catholic Church spoke about Daning’s long-lasting legacy in the city, Statehouse and House of Representatives.
“He was such a great friend and a mentor and very loyal to the Lowcountry,” Nancy Mace, U.S. House of Representative, said. “It was an honor to see that the Joseph Daning amphitheater was unveiled today in Goose Creek and that’s exciting for the residents of Goose Creek too and I want to thank Mayor Habib for that effort.”
The Joseph S. Daning Amphitheater will be located at the Municipal Center Campus near the Recreation Complex and the lake behind City Hall. It plans to include an outside basketball court, a food truck area, restrooms and additional parking.
Crystal Reed, the recreation director for the City of Goose Creek, says some examples of events that will be held at the amphitheater are slam poetry, improv, concerts and movie nights.
“I think the goal of the amphitheater and the projects that we’re doing in the city of Goose Creek is to bring entertainment into our city so that residents don’t have to travel and create more traffic,” Reed said. “They can get good dining options and good entertainment here in the city of Goose Creek.”
Reed says this project will break ground in April 2023 and it should take about 18 months to complete.
When Mayor Habib introduced the new amphitheater, Daning began to cry in shock.
“I didn’t expect any of this and then the new that,” Daning said, pointing to the picture of the proposed amphitheater. “You know, my father came from the Philippines. I am first generation. I mean this is just unbelievable. You know, I never expected any of this.”
The total cost of the amphitheater will be about $4 million. Daning secured $1.5 million in state funding and the remainder will be paid by ARPA funds.
