My name is Justin Hodge. I am a photographer located in Columbia, South Carolina. When I was growing up I spent countless hours outdoors. Hunting and fishing have been my passion from the time I could walk. I have many memories of great times spent with family and friends out in the woods or somewhere on a boat.
For the past 8 years I have managed a hunting and fishing outfitter store in Columbia, SC. However, until a couple of years ago (August 2015), I was struggling with what I really wanted to do with my life. My love and passion for being outdoors kept alluring me to try to find ways to spend more time doing it. Then, one day I decided to pick up a borrowed camera and try my hand at photography. Without any formal training, I planned a family photo session with my cousin’s family. After that shoot I realized that this is something I can do wholeheartedly. This was something that I could enjoy doing for the rest of my life!
Since that shoot my life has definitely changed. I have spent countless hours behind a camera and computer working with photos. I have traveled all over the Southeast for photo shoots and have worked with some awesome companies and people along the way.
This site will showcase mainly my work in photography. But, with that being said, I have worked on quite a few projects in the videography field. I have worked along side (C1films) for the past year as a videographer/photographer. I was the cameraman for the most recent XPLOR Project Season II Louisiana Delta. I am very appreciative to Frankie for getting me up to the speed in both fields and teaching me the ropes. We had a blast shooting that series!
I most recently was hired by Saltwater Sportsman Magazine as a freelance photographer and have been featured on the 2017 June and July issue covers! This is the type of work I dreamed of doing when I first started shooting photos. I am very humbled with the experiences I have been given along the way. I have come to realize that hard work really does pay off in the end.
If you are someone who is looking to hire a photographer, I am certainly available. I am willing to travel to get the images necessary to fulfil the shoot criteria.
