Authentic Exposure is a Charlotte visual art studio incorporating still photography & film, founded by myself, Adam Coker.
I love capturing, documenting or even simply witnessing authentic moments in people’s journey that are pivotal moments in their life.
My wife and I live at Lake Norman and are very involved with the Charlotte events community as well as Lake Norman living. You can often find me in Charleston or Boone as well.
I am a native of Greensboro NC where I attended Grimsely High and then on to Greensboro College followed by Appalachian State University where I completed my Bachelor of Arts. I went to college on a music scholarship for jazz and classical trumpet performance and I later found myself increasingly intrigued by visual arts.
When I was a kid I was fascinated with the posters for movie advertisements. I am always trying to push for an image that is worthy of hanging on the wall, something you would want displayed large, something that is timeless.
I have traveled coast to coast over 100 times as well as to Europe and Africa. Over the last 15 years I have become tightly woven into a large network of some of the most talented people in this industry. I am thrilled to be a part of this vibrant community. Visual Art should always be highly valued. I look forward to working with people that highly feel the same way.
We are a memebers of the National Association of Wedding Professionals as well as Fearless Photographers, Lake Norman Chamber of Commerce and The Knot.
