East Carolina University Event Photography: Iota Phi Theta Fraternity, Inc Probate

2019.4.22 ECU Probate 60.jpg

Those who follow this blog know I’m a proud member of Iota Phi Theta Fraternity, Inc. As a matter of fact, next week marks 20 years of my membership in this great organization.

During my early years in the fraternity, I was a cops reporter in Greenville, N.C., where I not only chased crime scenes and bad guys, but also helped start the fraternity’s Epsilon Pi Chapter at East Carolina University.

The chapter unfortunately died out and was dormant for 15 years - until Monday.

As president of the fraternity’s graduate chapter in Raleigh, N.C., I played a role in guiding these two men into Iota land, which has revived my involvement in the fraternity’s footprint at ECU.

And judging by the support from brothers, the ECU community, and the interest that came from the probate, I expect the chapter to grow and flourish.

2018 GCR Regionals - Friday - Zeta Delta Probate 151.jpg

I love capturing live action - especially when it's my own frat.

Zeta Delta, the Iota Phi Theta chapter at the University of South Florida, held a probate where the chapter's seven newest members were introduced to the campus.

The probate was part of a weekend of meetings and activities for the Gulf Coast Spring Regional Meeting in Tampa.

Here's some of the other pictures I captured during the weekend:

Thursday's events

Friday's events

Saturday's events

As a photographer, I enjoy shooting probates because there's constant action. The downfall was the heavy reliance on a flash, for this was an outside event at night with little lighting.
