—  About

Hi, I'm Baxter (also, Bax). I'm a photographer and visual creator who makes images that are a universal means of connecting people, place and culture.

Born, bred and based in eastern North Carolina, I'm most inspired when making photos involving my coastal heritage and food traditions. I'm also particularly interested in and enjoy molding how aesthetics influence our daily experience and I've channeled that expertise into my work as co-founder and visual voice behind Bit & Grain, a digital documentary project that captures the complex spirit of North Carolina through weekly, longform multimedia stories. 

Catch me in April 2017, as I co-teach a weekend class at Duke's Center for Documentary Studies on food photography as a lens to explore place.

Keep up with my everyday stories on Instagram.

From headshots to cookbooks, I love working with new clients on new projects. If you'd like to work with me, start by filling out the form below and I'll be in touch ASAP.
