It's been about a month and a half since I last blogged, but with good reason. More than usual, the past month and a half have been pretty hectic in both my personal and professional lives. No complaints though! Great progress is being made.
I'm just now getting back and settled into town after moving all of September up until this point. I was in San Francisco, California, visiting my brother for the first quarter of September, then was in Dallas for a multi-day video job for the second quarter of September. Once I landed from Dallas, Texas, I had a shoot every day until yesterday including the day I landed from Dallas. I say all that to recognize just how blessed I am to be working! I'm happy to be back in town and back working for a good while. Basketball season is coming up. High-level basketball photography is a huge staple of my brand and I've never been more ready.
SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA
I definitely like Southern California (Los Angeles to be exact) better, but San Francisco is a nice place for sure. Aside from the harsh winds, incredibly steep hills and surprisingly low temperatures, it was a very fun trip. The Golden Gate Bridge is one of the most amazing things i've ever seen and I can see why it's such a tourist attraction. It was my first time visiting my brother since he moved out there early last year. Luckily I was able to meet up with my mom and dad out there, and we went exploring for 4-5 days. Photos from my trip are in the gallery below.
Dallas is amazing. It wasn't really that hot at all and it was a very clean city. The skyline they have is beautiful. Dallas is the only city i've seen in person with colored LED lights on a lot of their buildings. I like the innovative look they're going for.
I went there as a member of DWPPC on a multi-day video job. Luckily, we were staying in the heart of downtown. We were shooting from basically 8am-9pm, then I would go out exploring and wandering around the city shooting whatever I could. I also met up with a local photographer one night and he showed me a rooftop with a breathtaking view of the city. While Dallas isn't necessarily the biggest tourist attraction, I can definitely see why people have an appeal to it. Photos from my trip are below.
