Weekly Winners {The Big Gig Edition}

On Friday night I shot The Most Interesting Show In The World.  Literally.

Leading up to the gig, I didn’t know what to expect.  Just being there and feeling the vibe, though, reinforced that *this* is what I absolutely love to do.  And, I thrive in this type of environment.

Photographer for Hire

Yesterday I worked.  I got up super early, put make-up on, fixed my hair with my big barreled curling iron, put on (knee high) stockings with my dress pumps, and my Spanx!  I left the house and contended with the rest of the work goers on the lovely Georgia highways which is totally *the part that I do not miss about being in the “work force”.

My job?  Photograph a Grand Opening.  I had a schedule of events, a shot list, and a designated start and finish time.   This is work that I could definitely get used to.  It’s quite different from portraiture, but it’s very appealing to me.  It’s comparable to shooting events—like conferences—and I love doing that.

Obligatory Bathroom Shot

By the time I got home, I was beat.    Way-back-when, I used to stand on my feet for 8 hours shooting at a portrait studio.  And, honestly, I don’t know how I did it.   I guess when you love what you do, you just do it!

Then [you] crash:

Work + Lunch = CRASH

*the part: I’d like to thank the Cobb County police officer for reducing my speeding violation BY ONE POINT, so that I wouldn’t get any points on my license.
