Adrian Henson's Bio:
Adrian Henson and his wife Heather operate their studio in New Bern NC. They began their journey into photography in 2001 and never looked back. While their studio covers the usual range of clients, the heart of their business is High School Seniors, dance students and Commercial clients. Adrian's images have received many awards from State, Regional and International competitions including a photographer of the year awards in 2011, 2012 and the Diamond award in 2013. Adrian has earned his Master of Photography, master of Electronic Imaging, and Craftsman Degrees and now has enough loan collection images to receive the coveted Image Excellence award. Adrian has also earned his Masters from SWPP UK.
Adrian has a degree in Mechanical Drafting and Design and utilized those
skills as a project manager for the first eight years of his professional
life. In 2001(after many years of not having any creative outlet), Adrian
discovered his love for photography. While the change from project manager
to photographer was huge, the skills and talents learned in his design
training proved useful in both careers.
He is a self-described "hobbyist" and is always on the lookout for new and
exciting hobbies to explore. From aquariums to metal detecting, and from
cave exploring to sailing, he's been involved in almost too many hobbies to
count! While photography began as a hobby, it was the "one" that stuck with
him and rocked him to the core. Many of his hobbies came and went, but
photography quickly evolved into much more, it became a core passion that
will define him forever. Every hobby now seems to revolve around and come
back to photography, and Adrian always finds a way to combine new hobbies
with his love of photography.
Today, Adrian is heavily involved with his state organization (Professional
Photographers of North Carolina) as well as being a PPA Councilor. He
regularly travels while teaching and speaking and is an International
Photographic Competition Juror in Training. He is very committed to
photographic competition and has been honored with the Diamond, Platinum,
Gold and Bronze awards as well as North Carolina's Photographer of the Year
award two years in a row and SEPPA's Best in Show, just to name a few.
Adrian considers competition the greatest informal education around and owes
the bulk of his photographic success to it.
Adrian is also devoted to making photography better. He encourages sharing
and openness among professionals and believes that "the rising tide lifts
all ships." He believes that through education, we can return confidence
back to the photography profession.
