OAK HALL PREPARATORY SCHOOL
There are times when you your life comes full circle. My high school principal, Richard Gehman, had a direct bearing on my academic performance in high school by encouraging me to take AP classes and work with diligence. He left my high school a few years after I graduated to become the headmaster of Oak Hall Preparatory School in Gainesville, Florida and we lost touch.

It was an unexpected pleasure to reconnect with him recently on a visit driving to Savannah from Tampa for a high school reunion last year. It was an opportunity to thank him for his guidance many years ago and to learn of the great work he has done growing Oak Hall into a top private school.
A few months ago, Oak Hall's director of marketing Michelle Runyon brought Jeremy Allen and I out to campus for a day of photography to update their brand. It was a great day on campus and we managed to outlast a looming thunderstorm and capture some dynamic outdoor images. Sometimes life pulls us full circle and I'm looking forward to my next visit with Headmaster Gehman. Above is a candid that Jeremy took of us along with some of the stronger images now at work branding Oak Hall.
