I am walking through the lobby of my hotel and notice a pile of camera gear, monopod, and Pelican case on a couch, but I didn't see anyone near the stuff. As I walked by I thought to myself, "yeah that stuff belongs to a photographer". You know photographers recognize other photographers. Later I am walking to my truck, and bam! There is this guy walking through the parking lot lugging the gear I saw in the lobby earlier. I approach the gentleman and introduce myself. I told him I saw his gear in the lobby and we instantly start talking. The guy starts to tell me about the video assignment he is in Atlanta working on and asks me about what I am doing. I proceed to explain to the gentleman that I was in town to shoot some photography while on my way to Flash Pros Palm Island Workshop in Cape Haze, Florida. I showed the gentle some of my photographs from Palm Island that I have on my iPhone 6 Plus. The gentleman is a onto graphed and videographer based out of Los Angeles, California. As we concluded our discussion about photography and work, I asked the gentleman to take a photograph with me. The gentleman agreed to take the photograph. Before I left I hit the guy with my business card and told him to keep in touch, he said he would email me later. And the rest is history... You never know who you will meet on the road. My professional network continues to grow. I plan to bring every photographer and artist along for this journey. Hit me up! Photography is a way of life.
