Many of you know that I am a licensed pyrotechnician lead operator for the state of South Carolina. With that always comes a busy time of year around July 4th. Here are a few videos from the three shows I did over the holiday. Two were shot under Zambelli Fireworks and the other at my church was my personal shoot. Enjoy!

On July 3, 2015 we did the firework show for my church, Northwood Baptist in North Charleston, SC. I made a previous post with pictures; however, this is the post we have been waiting for. We actually had a guy come out and film our shoot from a drone device. I was able to get the video yesterday, and it is posted below. For some reason, there is a 2:30 gap at the beginning, so the video should start at the 2:30 point. It is a long video at 38 minutes, so enjoy.
On Friday, July 3, 2015, my team and I put on the annual fireworks show at our church, Northwood Baptist, in North Charleston, SC. This show consisted of about 80 500 Gram Cakes, 140 2″ shells, and about 70 2″ comets. Below are some pictures and video from the show. I would like to thank Russ Mahaffey, Crystal McCall, Tommy & Skyler Connor, and other church members for the awesome photos and videos you will see below. We also had a drone flying over our show to record it. When I have that footage, I will make an update to the post to include this view.
Here is a slideshow of the pictures.
Here is a couple of videos:
As many of you know, I am a licensed pyrotechnician with the state of South Carolina and the ATF. We are in the process of planning many shows that our team will be doing over the holiday weekend next weekend. Here is a list of shows we will be doing if you would like to come out and support us.

On Saturday, October 25th, we held a fireworks show at the Highland Baptist Church in Orangeburg, SC. This was done at my firework partner, Mike’s church. The were having a Fall pig picking, and wanted us to do a fireworks show to end the evening. There were about 250 people in attendance for the show.
The show consisted of about 30-40 200 gram cakes, 40-50 500 gram cakes, and 200 2″ or less shells. Because it is Fall, and close to time change, we were able to shoot the show at around 7:30 PM. It was a 20 minute show. Because we were able to shoot earlier in the evening, that made for early clean up, and to get home and to bed at a reasonable hour.
If you have a desire to put on a fireworks show, contact me and we can quote you a price for your desires. My contact information is on the “About Me” page.
Here are some pictures from the show.
As a pyrotechnician I love to watch the Disney fireworks shows for inspiration. Well, Disney has come out with a new show for the summer based on the movie Frozen. It takes place at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. I hope they continue it through the end of the year, so I can see it Thanksgiving weekend when we are back down there. It looks great, and involves a lot of the characters from the movie.
Here is more about the show on Disney’s Blog.
