About Skip Rowland

more than just a guy with a camera

Skip RowlandI am a fulltime freelance photojournalist, regularly shooting for the Richmond Times-Dispatch, the W&M Magazine, and a number of other local publications. In addition to shooting assignments, I have produced a number of photo columns, such as “In Our Backyard,” which appeared weekly in the Hanover Herald-Progress for a year and a half. Primarily a photojournalist, I also provide photography services to small businesses, large corporations, private foundations, as well as a number of area colleges and universities. (I also shoot weddings and portraits!)

It all started in high school when my best friend let me take some shots at a football game. That was all it took. I was hooked and have been taking photos one way or another ever since! Since turning to photography as a full-time profession over 10 years ago, I have earned numerous awards and distinctions, including four 1st place awards in the Virginia Press Association’s annual competition and have had four images selected by Kodak to appear on their “Picture of the Day” billboard in Times Square. Not the least of my recognitions was having an image selected as the 2006 Best in Show for Non-Daily Publications by the Virginia Press Association. I also have 20 large canvas prints hanging in the Randolph-Macon Yellow Jacket’s Club.

Born in Richmond, raised in Southside Virginia, educated at William & Mary, I now reside in Hanover County with my wife Nina, our two children, and our rescued dogs and cats.

Here are some of my favorite images.
