Larry Woodson, a freelance photographer

My Philosophy
is to capture an image that alters the viewer's state of mine, change a point of view, and see the world from a different perspective. I believe that a true photographer captures images that can be life changing for some.


The Moment, I purchased my first camera at the age of 12 years old a Yashima MG1, I had no clue of what I was doing. As I began my journey to learn what some might assume was a natural talent, I was determined to learn all I could about photography.

After spending time in California and Texas I returned to my roots on the Mississippi Gulf Coast. I began assisting my brother in the wedding photography business. He would take the main shoots; my job was to shoot as many candid shots as possible. We were still using film at the time because he wasn't completely sold on digital. I was introduced to digital by mistake. After purchasing a camera from a cousin (which I though was a Canon 35mm) in reality it turned out to be a Canon Digital Rebel. I was absolutely amazed at the photos. From that moment on I fell in love with digital photography. Today I shoot with a Nikon D610.
