My name is Courtland. I’m Staff Photographer at The Vicksburg Post in Vicksburg, Mississippi just at the end of the historic Mississippi Delta. Not a stranger to the South, I’m originally from Tuscaloosa, Alabama and a 2016 Graduate of the University of Southern Mississippi with a bachelor’s degree in photojournalism.

I’ve won numerous awards and my work has appeared in print and digital platforms of many publications including The New York Times, The Washington Post, Time Magazine, USA Today, and more.

Contact me at or 205-535-9059 for freelance assignments throughout Mississippi and beyond.
