Roger Stephenson

Roger specializes in performance photography. He loves to tell the story of a musician through his photograph, like a great smile, a characteristic stance or an ability to hype the audience, that you may have not noticed beforehand. He wants his photographs to create a connection between the musician and the viewer.

Nelson Grice

Nelson was born in Nashville, Tennessee where he learned a love for entertainment and creative expression through the performing arts of choir and stage. He moved to Alabama as a teenager and was captivated by the beauty of the state’s landscape.

He became interested in photography, and eventually art school. It was in art school that Nelson found his passion for sculpture. He earned a BFA and an M.Ed from the University of Montevallo and has been teaching in the public schools since 1996. His professional career as a sculptor compliments his role as a teacher.

Nelson’s piece “Storytime”, featured below, won Best in Show at the SCAC 2016 Juried Art Show. You can visit Nelson online at
