I do love what I do. I love to photograph weddings, parties, families, bar/bat mitsvahs, commercial products and more. But one thing I have found a new passion for is conferences. The energy and excitement of people selling their new and old products, the fun activities for young and old alike, it’s a blast, especially when you are in a city like Savannah, Georgia right on the riverfront. To cover such an event does take a bit of stamina, but the tired feet do pay off when you see peoples faces enjoy the work you have done.
This past week I had photographed and completed a little photography and video work for The Georgia Association of Water Professionals 2012 Conference in Savannah, Georgia. Not all of the event was published in this montage, as this montage was created for presentation on the third day of a four day event. This gave the members a chance to see themselves on the big screen and all the fun that had occurred throughout the event. There were a lot of activities ranging from a 5k run, to a BBQ cookoff with more than 10 restaurants represented with a live band through the night. There was a caricature artist throughout the event,(I can’t wait to share my caricature in another post), and no other than Forrest Gump himself attended as well. He was sorry that Cap’n Dan couldn’t attend. Some events not in the montage included childrens learning activities, a dunking booth and ice cream social, many event timed races, even a pinewood derby(but made with water related parts, such as pvc pipe).
The timelapse shots of the event setup made for an exciting look at what goes into making it all happen. I am glad we were able to put that into the montage for the vendors to enjoy.
Stay tuned for my next post which includes a skit we created with the outgoing president of GAWP, I am sure you will enjoy it.
