About Camden

My name is Camden. I’m a tall, Southern woman with an affinity for creative things – specifically making movies.

Writing, producing, and directing are my strengths. A self-taught filmmaker, I have finished five films and am in production on a new feature-length documentary.

You’ll occasionally find a dash of other stuff here such as my love for still photography, baking, or decluttering.

My Background

My home town is in Washington, N.C., where there are plenty of wide open spaces, people say “ma’am” and “sir” frequently, and BBQ means chopped pork covered in vinegar sauce. (Which is, really, the best way to eat BBQ.)

My first photo essays were about tobacco farming in eastern North Carolina.

Eastern North Carolina, or “Down East” as we call it, is where I spent lots of hours writing, photographing sunsets, sailing, swimming, and day dreaming about a life in film. Huge props to my family, teachers, coaches, and youth leaders. They gave my imagination room to run, with enough guidance to hone my skills early on.

My husband, Derek, and me in Positano, Italy in May 2017. I was pregnant with our daughter, Samantha, at the time. (Photo courtesy of my mother-in-law.)

Traveling the world has also been a huge privilege. (I’m told that it makes my accent confusing. I’ve been asked if I’m Canadian or Australian a few times.) The urge to skip town and visit my favorite cities is very real and it helps me appreciate home even more.

My background is in photography, graphic design, and marketing. I earned a Bachelor of Arts from Meredith College in 2003. I studied improvisational comedy for roughly ten years, which is also where I happened to fall in love with my husband. Derek and I got married in 2013. We live in Raleigh, N.C., with our daughter Samantha.
