Fitness

I recently did a two day photography project for Edward Hospital’s fitness centers. I don’t have a personal trainer or belong to a fitness club, but I’ve been on the the “Photographer’s Workout Routine” for years. Perhaps you’ve heard of it; it involves carrying around a ton of camera gear after getting little sleep, and eating whatever you can get your hands on. It’s been working for me so far.

Buddy Guy

I was so happy to see that blues legend Buddy Guy was a recipient this past weekend at the 2012 Kennedy Center Honors.

I got a chance to photograph him a few years ago. Backstage he was very down-to-earth and friendly, chatting with many of the people gathered around. But unlike some other “living legends” who seem to be happy to coast on their past success, Buddy can still put on a stellar performance! He had the whole place jumping, even getting down into the crowd at one point to jam with the fans. Good person, great artist, and an award well deserved.
