Since I have not put any pressure upon myself to blog this year, I have been enjoying photographing and writing a bit more. Pressure is off and I’m being more creative.
January was busy, February a close second and March is catching up! In the past three months, I’ve photographed mega star Cher, WWE, a Bacon Jam festival, a circus, a couple of local bands & events, Joe Bonamassa, Shinedown with Asking Alexandria and Papa Roach (more on this later). I have also photographed a hip hop concert and a TacoFest!
I have upcoming this month (March) Impractical Jokers and a couple more local events.
I would have had a few more opportunities, however the Shinedown concert took me out of the picture for about a week. The concert was great, but the fog used, not so much. I know I can’t be around smoke for very long without running into breathing issues, but I never once thought about stage fog, and I was out for several days due to bronchial asthma caused by the fog. Live & learn!
Recently I’ve been doing some commercial work for my son’s best friend. He recently returned from Vietnam where he was managing a resort and has started a Bamboo Straw business. Because I have done some website photography work for him, he has given me a discount code for my followers who may be interested in purchasing a renewable no waste straw to replace using plastic ones. These straws are fantastic, no aftertaste, they can be composted so they are zero waste and with the beautiful travel kit you will received a lovely pouch with a coconut button closure. The discount code is EARTH and it will give you 10% off your total purchase; his website: Bamboo Step. Please visit and consider saving our planet one straw at a time.
