James came into town a couple of weeks ago from Greenville, SC toting his new camera. We decided to take that puppy out and snap some pictures of the new shirts. A buddy of ours, Kyle, came along for the ride and we headed into town looking for good spots to shoot. There are a lot of areas in Atlanta that have a lot of character and history, but they're becoming fewer and fewer. Mostly because in the south we don't hold onto historic property the way they do up north. If we've got something old and dilapidated, we tear it down and put a shopping center where it was. Up north it seems like they're more apt to restore something or reuse it rather than tear it down and start fresh. So when looking for cool spots to shoot, we were surprised to find that some of the ones we were used to weren't around anymore. Bummer. Although we did find a pretty cool train yard on the north side of town as the day was coming to a close. We've been using some of the shots on the site and for social media, but here are a few of the outtakes that aren't quite "print ready".
So Shockwave in the Desert 2015 just wrapped up a few days ago. We were lucky enough to make it out and represent 1776 United. Went alone on this one as Cody was stuck at work. But I was able to snag some awesome photos, meet some great people, and have a grand time in Phoenix. Thanks to Eric from Fox Den Tactical for letting me crash at his place and driving my ass around! Flew in Thursday morning, relaxed for a bit and hit up the casino at night. Didn't quite win my retirement fund like I had envisioned, but had a good time. Friday we hit up a local spot for some Bloody Mary's in the morning and then headed to Cowtown as that's where the event was going to be. Just me and Eric for the whole day, just warming up the place.
