Woodie S. Knight started to get serious about photography 30 or so years ago. After attending school at Brooks Institute of Photography in Santa Barbara, Ca., he moved to the Nashville area to become a “professional photographer” where he began doing primarily studio work for Service Merchandise catalogs and flyers. This led to shooting for an advertising agency which did work in the jewelry industry. Eventually, he became head photographer at the agency and the type of projects expanded to include boats, furniture, footwear, fashion, lifestyle, and MANY kinds of products. When the time seemed right to become independent, he started KnightVision Photography where his work has expanded to include architectural, editorial, magazine, school portraits, weddings and other somewhat unclassifiable subjects. He feels very fortunate and blessed to live and raise a family in Franklin, TN. www.knightvisionphotography.com Woodie is responsible for all of the fabulous photos above except the hot air baloon photo, and the compilation below.
