Management Team


Ron Wainscott - Owner / Founder

I was born and raised in Kentucky, but found my way to the beach in 1998 to work for the local radio station in Gulf Shores, AL.  As someone who has never liked snow or cold weather, the beach was the perfect place for me!

In 2004, I decided to turn my photography hobby into a business.  Over the past 13 years, Shore Shooters has grown from a one-person photography business into a team of more than 30 photographers.

April Loyle - Team Coordinator

I was born and raised right here in Gulf Shores, Alabama. I’ve lived here for 32 years. I grew up playing on the beaches of Alabama and Florida. I’m a true florabama girl. I split my time with family between Panama City and Gulf Shores for many summers. I would be on the beach from early in the morning until the sun went down at night.

When I’m not taking photos, I am thinking about taking photos. It’s pretty much in the front of my mind at all times. I’m usually thinking of how to get better or of new things to try.


Brittney Rush - Office Manager

I grew up in Southern Illinois near St. Louis, MO, but moved to the Gulf Coast 12 years ago, so that I could always work with my toes in the sand!  I had lived and worked in Los Angeles for several years and while I liked living on a coast, I didn’t care for the hectic lifestyle. My family had vacationed in Gulf Shores when I was little and it seemed like the best place to combine beautiful scenic beaches, and the hometown feel that I missed so much while living in a big city.

Trisha LaCoste - Marketing

I was born in Ohio, spent most of my childhood in Wisconsin, and moved to Alabama at 16.

When I’m not taking pictures, I’m either designing a logo, building a website, creating a video, or doing some other form of work. I’m a terrible workaholic. But the rare cases when I’m not working, I love to travel, work out, read, and listen to music. I also play piano and guitar so music has always been a big part of my life.
