Honored to have my website selected into PDN’s 2014 Photo Annual! Big thanks to aPhotoFolio for the template.
I’m very honored to have 4 images selected to appear in the editorial section of Communication Arts 2014 Photography Annual. I’m thrilled with what was chosen and when the issue is out I’ll write a little more about how the images came to be.
Did you know that Akron, OH is/was home to the 4 largest tire manufacturers, including Goodyear? Which brings us to this post. ESPN the Magazine sent me to the “rubber capital of the world” to photograph the newly unveiled Goodyear Blimp. I wish I could say we went up for a flight but it was anchored down in the hangar but it was OK. They keep that hangar as clean as german porsche garage, immaculate. The new blimp is supposedly all teched out. This one has a bathroom! You’d think all of them would have a bathroom but they didn’t. I have a good friend who is a sports photographer, Rob Tringali, and he was in the blimp for a baseball all-star game one year. That particular game went into extra innings and they were up there for hours. He asked “what if I have to go to the bathroom”? The answer he got was “bring a gatorade bottle”. Awesome.
Thanks to Kaitlin Marron for the assignment.
