A good gig...

With the production company I am working for here and there, I have to make some concessions. They have some of the best AV guys in the biz and there's no way I can compete with them, they really are amazing guys. When I am on these shows. I am a basic stage hand building sets and jumping in where needed, then run cameras for the shows. This show in Park City UT was a wee bit different. After building sets, my job was as a still camera guy. I just ran around documenting as much of the events as I could. I shot around 1100 pictures but one of the coolest things was shooting individual shots with Tom Brokaw and the various company execs and clients. After the shoot I asked if I could take my picture with him and he was more than gracious.


Here are a few more samples of this weeks job...











Waiting on a flight back home and grateful for the opportunity to spend a few days shooting and getting paid for it. More about Park City in a few.

Nice shots! I like the contrast in focus between the subject and the background.

And Park City looks like a nice tourist place. Get any time off while you were there?

Park City is absolutely stunning.
The ski resort we were at is about 2 miles from down town. The downtown area is just packed with restaurants and shops. That's where the Sundance Film Fest is every year. We had dinner in town the first night, the rest of the time was all spent on the property working. This was my second time there and I'm more in love with the place.
