Casey Szocinski has been "chasing light" since his first camera, shooting helicopters taking off and landing on the USS Sanctuary off the coast of Vietnam.

Like many, he then shifted to shooting family and friends with Pentax gear he inherited from his uncle, who was the family "photo bug."  Taking a friend up on an offer to shoot a wedding, he made a part-time job out of his passion.

As he continued to grow as a photographer, he developed a unique view of nature and landscape photography that has taken him all over the United States, including a 3 month expedition that went from one national park to another.

Casey has been published in South Carolina Wildlife magazine as well as Camera in the Wild, the Carolina Nataure Photographers' annual magazine. He has received ove 20 first places awards and numerous other awards in contests around the south, and has shows in South Carolina and Georgia.

He makes his home in North Augusta with his wife Cleavie, where he is still "chasing the light."
