Bobby King, Freelance Photographer & Web Designer
Thank You for visiting my website. I hope that we can one day work together to bring forth your vision and make memories that will last a lifetime.
My name is Bobby King and I am a News Photojournalist and Event/Sports Photographer from Jacksonville, Florida. I have been a Freelance Journalist with the Florida Times-Union and a Community Photographer for Jacksonville. Com for the last 5 years and a contributor to the Jacksonville Daily Record the last 2 years.
The hardest thing to do is write about yourself. We think and stress about who we want the world to see. What face do I want to show and how does it play into my marketing strategy. I see where people write in the third person and that is OK but I am human, not an object.
I have been many things in my life. I have been a US Marine, a Laborer, a Mechanic, Ironworker, and Carpenter. I have worked in the Hospitality Industry as a Barback, Bartender and Security Officer. I have been a roadie for major rock bands as well as deeply involved in the local music scene here in Jacksonville, Florida. It has been a busy life with ups and downs, but no regrets.
I graduated from Florida Community College Jacksonville in 2006 with a degree in Information Technology which I used to start my own freelance website design service. I then attended the University of North Florida as an undergraduate obtaining my degree in Computer Science. While at the University of North Florida I completed my coursework for the Bachelor of Fine Arts as a Photographic Major.
I am developing my own documentary - journalistic style photographing what I love and know best. I am often found with a camera in my hand photographing events, concerts and on News assignments. I also Photograph sports on all levels from PeeWee to College and will photograph weddings and other important events. I am available to Photograph and Document your private event, Family Reunion, Engagement and Wedding or help create your portfolio. My rates are reasonable and not set in stone. Call me when you need a photographer.
