Fun in the Sun - Part I? Interested??

Saturday, June 23, 2007

So I have an idea. I thought that since its finally summertime and everyone is enjoying the great outdoors, why not have a gathering? Public that is!

When I am not shooting or editing or cleaning equipment or repairing equipment or carrying equipment....riiight...I enjoy outdoor sports, friends, and food (anyone nifty on the grill?).

This blog entry is to find out how many folks we have interested in meeting up at a local Atlanta city park (Midtown - Piedmont Park ?) to network, meet new/old friends, dust off the old frisbee or soccer ball, enjoy food, fun, and generally hang out with other positive people.

I have my circle of friends, however, my clients, blog readers, and photographer buds are like an extended family for me. And most of you don't know one another.

If you like the idea of doing something in early August (the 4th and 5th are my off days), add your email to the list or send an email to:

You can also add your email address or your "code name" and the date of your preference to the comments section. I'll be there whether you are there or not!!! See some of you soon...

Feel free to bring your cameras so everyone can check out what you have been shooting this year!

Your passion is to take pictures that tell stories and you do it remarkably so. My passion is to inspire others to turn their fantasy lives into a reality.

I found your blog through an email I was forwarded of Rob & Keisha's engagement. Whenever my turn comes, YOU will be the photographer on hand.

Many blessings to you as you inspire others through your passion and the words on this blog. I am on my God given journey to be perfectly positioned to be a blessing-- as you are.

You're wonderful and I can't WAIT to be able to contact you for my dream engagement session.

Ross, count me in... we actually have some mutual friends: Nana Ajwoa and Tamara... anyway, 8/4 sounds 'doable' so count me in. Think I'll bring some fruits.

Found your site through the now-famous robert gray-keisha williams proposal video. Absolutely beautiful!!! A wonderful presentation of the effort of the proposal and the love of the couple, family, and friends!!

Good idea on the fun in the park. Took me back to ungrad years ~ Piedmont Park y'all.

If I'm in Atlanta that weekend (August 4th is my preference), I will definitely be there! Gotta have some card playing (ok, I just play at cards but I can bring a deck or two) and volleyball too!!

You are definitely an inspiration and your talent is awe-inspiring!
Look forward to seeing more of your work in the future!

How's the biking thing going?
