Today I had my first “last minute photo shoot.” I was just sitting around reading some magazines and researching when a friend of mine, who is a videographer, let me know that he heard there was an opening for a photographer for an event at noon. I looked at the clock and it was 9:30. Long story short, I booked the event at 10:15. Had not had a shower yet, and had to drive 30ish minutes to the location. Needless to say it was a little hectic.
The shoot was for the Charlotte Chamber of Commerce. They were facilitating the announcement that professional indoor lacrosse was coming to Charlotte. We have been granted a team. I have never in my life watched a lacrosse match. But, listening to our new owner, I’m pretty pumped about checking them out when they start in January of 2012.
It was a blast to get to do this, and hopefully I made some good connections in the business community so that this type of work will continue. I really enjoyed meeting the owner, Graham, especially. A great guy.
