In any industry it is important to continue your education. In fact, some industries even require a minimum number of hours of continuing ed. While the photography industry does not require it, there are a lot of options throughout the year to continue to learn and grow. This week I have the opportunity to attend Imaging USA. Imaging USA is the largest convention and trade show in the photography industry. This week we're in Nashville, TN at the lovely Gaylord Opryland. Seeing a lot of great new equipment, software, backgrounds and techniques. Getting to visit with friends from all over the country really is a nice bonus as well. Hoping to pick up some great ideas and come home in a couple of days excited and motivated and able to give you, the client the very best imagery possible!

Arkansas has a good deal of Aerospace industry and the past few weeks I've had the pleasure of working with a company who dismantles retired aircraft, catalogs and sells the parts then recycles the rest. Documenting the process and photographing some key components has been my role. We started with photographing (and videoing) the Airbus A320 as it came in for a landing from it's final flight. A few days later we were back at it to photograph the removal of the engines. That was an interesting day. Twenty degrees outside and a 30mph north wind made for quite the challenge. After this big project is over our attention will be turning toward some things to come this spring. Exciting stuff on the horizon!
