It has been a whirlwind month. While I have been actively shooting, I simply have not had the time to blog as well as photograph and spend time with Michelle. Sorry, but spending time with her before I take off for a month just took a higher priority. To make up for it, I thought I would post some highlights of what I did photographically in March. For each Thursday evening, I was over at Rumrunner‘s, photographing ladies who were contending to be “Bud Girls.” In mid-month, I, along with several other photographers, was busy photographing the ASAA Alaska State Championship Basketball Tournament at the Sullivan Arena. Nothing but basketball for six days, twelve hours a day or more. Then, on some Saturdays, I was capturing some sports action over at the AT&T Sports Complex on Old Seward Highway and O’Malley, photographing action for the Alaska Indoor Flag Football League (AIFFL), an adult league that starts in January each year and goes to mid-March. Then, there were two Alaska Wild games, an exhibition game at the Wasilla Sports Complex (what I also call Sarah’s Sports Complex) and the season opener at the Sullivan Arena against the Fairbanks Grizzlies. I also did head shots for the Alaska Wild staff, team and dance team, the “Wildfire,” as well as the girls’ group photo.
So, lots of sports and related glamour photos, not much time for nature … except that one Saturday morning after some fresh snowfall when I looked out the kitchen window to the front yard and saw some vole tracks. Had to get that. I will have plenty of time next month, though, as I will be serving as the Artist-in-Residence for Badlands National Park from April 7 to May 8. Keep an eye on my blog for regular updates, where I will discuss the park, my creative process, and some new gear I am trying out.
