This Summer I was lucky enough to join in, part way through the craziness, that was Trey Ratcliff’s photowalk across America. And it was ridiculously crazy. From the minute I landed for my 2 day whirlwind trip to Nashville, it was nothing but heat, heat, and a lot of sweaty photography.
I chose to join this one in particular because my friend and mentor Bob Young happened to be helping out to organize the event. I figured this would be a good opportunity to get a behind the scenes glimpse of the overworked, and totally talented, crew behind the Arcanum.
For those of you that might not have heard of the Arcanum, it’s a great online photography mentoring site started by Trey and some colleagues. I highly recommend checking it out.
This shot was from the first night I arrived. I was staying at a hotel right across the bridge from downtown. Which is where all the coolest stuff in Nashville is! And where the photowalk was going to start the next day.
I hit the ground running and spent the whole first day and night walking around downtown with my headphones in, taking shots. I’m not a country fan by any means. But I am still able to appreciate this city. It’s full of cool looking churches, bars on every corner, and stores that sell boots, well pretty much everywhere. It’s a little ridiculous… But somehow awesome at the same time.
I walked back across the bridge with a pizza, and stopped to get this shot before I went home to FaceTime my wife. Who would like nothing better than to be surrounded by country at all times, and is kinda upset I went without her… sorry about that ;(
