Wow its been a busy month for me personally, and I realized I have not made a blog post in a month. I’m really getting antsy to do some shooting as I feel like I haven’t done a whole not in a few weeks. After my last post we spent 4 days in Jacksonville to attend Welcome to Rockville which is a 3 day Rock music festival. We attend one of these every year and its always a great time. Hoping one of these years I will be able to shoot one of these festivals…..goals! I did get a chance to do some shooting in Downtown Jacksonville one morning so I have posted a couple of those shots below.
Since that the past two weeks have been filled with a couple fun filled weekends. The first weekend back was the Kentucky Derby/Cinco De Mayo so we were busy all weekend hanging out with friends enjoying the events, and last weekend was spent with friends out at Tracks and Trails in Punta Gorda which is an off-road vehicle amusement park of sorts. I did get some shooting done out there and I will post a couple of those below. That weekend has left me wanting to get my own ATV or side by side to go riding, exploring, and photographing the park and the people there.
I have shot a couple houses since my last blog post (couple photos below), and had a quick job shooting the Yoga Sanctuary in Punta Gorda. Other than that it has been a very light photography month. That should start to change as I am looking to get into a few large concert venues through a fellow photographer that has started a music/concert website in which they review and post photos of shows in the area. He has asked me to shoot some for them which I have of course agreed to do. My first one may be this week (Tuesday) at the Mid-Florida Amphitheater in Tampa. Kendrick Lamar will be performing which is not a show I would normally attend as I’m not into his kind of music, but it will get me some experience with that large of a show, and I will be able to make some good contacts.
I am also starting to get excited for next month as we will be taking a vacation to Arkansas, Oklahoma, Kansas, and Colorado. Most of the time will be spent in Colorado, and I plan on doing a lot of shooting in the 3-4 days we will be there. I have not been back to the Colorado Springs area where my Aunt lives since I was in Middle School so I am really looking forward to visiting some of the sites I remember as well as some new ones.
Aside from that I am looking to do some portrait shooting in the next few weeks. A fellow photographer friend, and owner of the tattoo shop I go to, wants to do a shoot with me which I am excited about. I just need to find the time to pick a few locales as well as come up with some good ideas. Its much more difficult to shoot another photographer than another model for various reasons, however it also usually results in great shots as you have two creative minds working together with knowledge of the medium.
Hopefully it won’t be another month till my next blog post. As always thank you for reading along and supporting my work.
