Sports Shooter MemberI just became a member of Sports Shooter. After submitting your application which includes photographs and information about yourself, you have to be approved by the company in order to join. Though I don't know how rigorous the restrictions are you have to meet their standards to be able to become a member. 

I had thought of becoming a member for quite sometime but never pursued it. Now that I'm in a new state I figured it could only help me get my name out more.

I recommend you check out some of the wonderful work on the website beyond my own page. There are some fantastic photographers on the website. I'd especiallly recommend looking at Jeff Adkins and Adam Cairns who are both photographers I know personally.

Jazz and Blues

One of the last few assignments I did in Columbus was going to the Gahanna Creekside Jazz and Blues Festival to cover Watermelon Slim and Super Chikan. There was a huge crowd, though honestly not as packed as I expected it to be. Here are some of the photos and a video of some of what I saw.

The video includes a portion of a performance by Watermelon Slim and Super Chikan at night. All the video and audio was shot on a Canon 7d, and though the camera can't quite handle the loud music it does a nice job with a very dark venu. I loved the little bit of trombone at the end. I found him on the street entertaining the crowds. It was a very unique sound.
