Camera – Check; Lenses – Check; Extra batteries/SD Cards – Check; Drone – Check; Weather? – Cloudy/Partly Sunny; Somehow the weather forecaster conveniently didn’t mention there would be random downpours throughout the day! Panda Junction is my first outdoor car show I attended so far this year and to have it rain was something I wasn’t expecting! Once I arrived at Ripken Stadium (named after Cal Ripken from the Baltimore Orioles) in Aberdeen, MD, I began photographing the show! Not knowing what the weather was going to do, I needed to move quickly and get my shots. About an hour or so into shooting the show, the clouds got dark and it rained for a good 20 minutes or so but it was like a Florida rain where it rained for a short time and then stopped. Even during the torrential downpour, there was still a long line of spectators waiting in line as far as I could see. Once the dark clouds rolled out, the sun made an appearance and umbrellas went away and and the show was back in full swing. Click the link to see images I captured. I did shoot video as well and will be editing a short car show film soon!
I am sorry I haven’t been staying current with the blog but I have been extremely busy over the last few months with a variety of projects. Now for the exciting news! As of April 10th, I passed the FAA Part 107 test which allows me to fly my sUAS commercially. I am now an FAA Licensed and Certified Drone Pilot. I will be adding Aerial Photography and Aerial Video to our list of services we offer. Stay tuned for more information coming soon including a sizzle reel!

If you follow my Instagram account, you will see how I enjoy capturing interesting sunrises and sunsets. I recently planned an early morning shoot where I wanted to capture the sunrise from a distance with the Philadelphia skyline in the background and a statue at the Smith Memorial Arch in the foreground. I am really impressed with how well this photo came out!
