Lowcountry Influentials

Not everybody who has an influence in the community is a famous person. There are many people who quietly live their lives but who diligently work day by day to improve life in our beautiful city. 

These people are from many branches of life and they work in many different jobs and professions. 

Regardless of who they are, they touch other people’s lives and create helpful and beneficial influences. They might help you with their wisdom or with their example. 

Whenever a have the luck to meet one of them I ask them if I can make their portrait and ask a few questions to know more about them.

These are the stories of the Lowcountry Influentials.
