Working as the official photographer for Leadership Knoxville Youth Graduation 2015 was an honor to be part of and is the first of many more years of Graduations for Knoxville’s youth to come. I try and capture what the client instructs me to do as well as all of the unexpected moments that always seem to occur during the event! Hope you enjoy these photos . . . I have been staying really busy with events for the past month of May.
This was a switch . . . I got to be on the other side of the camera and was interviewed by Lesli Bales Sherrod of the Knoxville News Sentinel last week. I talked about my career as a photographer, pursuits as an artist, and my new business adventure with my business partner Mr. Billy Sams. The article is linked to this photo:) Here is a link to the story from The Knoxville News Sentinel http://www.knoxnews.com/knoxville/life/lesli-balessherrod-south-knox-photographer-offers-business-specialist-services_16834590
Here is a look inside the Ripley’s Aquarium of The Smokies located in Gatlinburg, Tennessee. I enjoyed the aquatic life seemingly all around me without ever getting my feet wet or my camera of course. These are all shot with my Canon 7D with only ambient light. It was a bit of a challenge as the aquarium is naturally very dark with only the light form the tanks illuminating the fish. I hope you enjoy them and happy first day of Spring 2015.
