I was talking to Keri the other day about a photo contest I submitted to recently. It wasn't so much about the contest, but about looking through my catalog from 2012 for photos to submit. I realized that the downside to a good business year can sometimes mean the lack of personal projects. I ended up finding something to submit, but it was a slap in the face to realize I had done very little shooting for myself this year. This is why I was ecstatic when I spoke to Marc Del Santro about photographing the recent meteor shower. It was about as last minute as can be when at 2pm he said "I'm heading to South Carolina in about 9 hours to shoot from midnight until dawn." To which I replied "yes, Marc- I will invite myself along." It was exactly that- finish up a shoot at 6pm, go to band practice until 10pm, then head to SC for shooting until dawn. Marc also brought along the incredible Nadia D. I can't tell you how much fun I had- not only for the photography and friendship, but for the fact that it was photography for myself. Plus the meteor shower was pretty insane.
